Nepalese Cuisine - 8 Dishes You Must Try

The kingdom of the Himalayas is a country of abrupt valleys, mountains that scratch the sky and above all, water: waterfalls, lakes and rivers that flood the green terraces of rice fields. Rice is the basic, cheap and nutritious food. But potatoes, corn, wheat, beans, tomatoes or lentils are also grown. The proximity to India to the south and to Tibet to the north exerts its influence in the hodgepodge of abundant spices and fats such as yak butter.

A whole world of culinary specialties with which to be surprised and the best, at a ridiculous price! A plate of noodles, rice or momos does not usually cost more than 100 - 150 rupees. Choose always a Tibetan restaurant that mixes the flavors of the mountain. Read here about the Best Nepalese Cuisines that you must try.
