Yes, momo is the most amazing thing since the dawn of time. But there is so much more to Nepal’s culinary world than just momo. If you take a detour through it, your taste buds will have an adventure of a lifetime.
Here are some supposedly ‘weird’ Nepali food, that some people might say ‘chi chi’ but after having a bite they say “when did I say that?”
Gundruk is the sole reason why we Nepali call ourselves 'bhaatey'. Way to our hearts is getting gundruk to our stomach, everyday!
You will find Nepalis abandoning their luggage so that they don't have to let go of their over-weight 'titaura-ko-suitcases' in the airport.
Tama loves attention. Tama deserves attention. Especially aaloo-taamaa. I mean we have restaurants named after this dish alone!
Dhedo is what makes we Nepalis so humble. And, when you have it with buttermilk, you reach heaven with every bite!
Chances are if you belong to the Kirant community, you already know what this means. It’s soybean, fermented to be slimy and odorous. But if you like the taste, it’s gold!
The Newari equivalent of pizza. 'Nuff said!
7 Sel roti
We don't do donuts, we do it extravagent, we do it large (I mean look at the size), we do it SELROTI style.
This is how a Nepali's 'swarga' tastes like, especially if you serve it with some bhaat ani tamatar ko achar with saag and kaalo daal.
Another sweet snack! Newari biscuits glazed with sugar, found in an assortment of shapes and if eaten can make any bad day better. You’ve been warned!
This is how 'love in first bite' looks like if you ever to fall in love with food. BEST. MARINATED. MEAT. DISH. EVER!
Yomari is for sweet dishes, what Momo is for rest of the dishes. If you have never threatened your Newari friend to bring you some, have you even lived your life?
12 Mula ko Achar
Pickled radish in a glass jar basking in the winter Sun. Need I say more? Except just don't burp for few hours maybe?
