Traditional Dishes The national dish of Nepal is Dal Bhat, a simple meal consisting of rice and lentils that are cooked together. It's served with potatoes and onions or tomatoes, with condiments like chutney on the side. For those looking for more spice in their life, try one of the many flavorful Nepalese curries like daal or tomato masala. And don't forget about those tasty dumplings called momos! They can be filled with veggies or meat and eaten either steamed or fried. You can find these delicious dumplings at street stalls all over Kathmandu as well as in trekking towns like Everest Base Camp Trek Route. Nepalese people love to eat fish during festivals such as Tihar when they make an elaborate fish curry known as Patra ni Macchi.
Most Nepalis grow up eating traditional foods made from locally-sourced ingredients. But cooking western style is becoming more popular because of the convenience and variety it offers. What does your appetite crave? Dining options abound in Nepal, but here are some things you shouldn't miss out on while visiting. Himalayan cuisine features a lot of game meats like yak, goat, chicken and even buffalo meat. While this might sound strange to outsiders, we recommend giving it a try! Yak cheese is another popular item you'll see at markets throughout the country, often sold alongside other varieties of cheese made from cow milk or buffalo milk.
There is plenty of western food to enjoy too! French, Italian, and Indian cuisines are available in many tourist areas as well as in American fast food chains like Burger King and Pizza Hut. So no matter what kind of food you are craving, Nepal is sure to have it!
