Day 1Nepali cuisine

Upon your arrival at the Kathmandu airport, our representative will meet, greet, and welcome you and transfer you to the hotel. You can rest relax and enjoy your time in the hotel or you can stroll around the city. As part of our program, Nepal Food Tasting Tour: Taste Like a Local Tour, in the evening our representative will take you to enjoy the traditional Thakali khana.  It is an improvised version of daal-bhaat, the staple food Nepalis eat for lunch and dinner. The set may include rice or dhindo, as per choice. Dhindo, made of buckwheat, is ideal for diabetics, it is also something very hard to find in other countries. Gundruk, a part of this dish, is spicy dried spinach that is also exclusively made in Nepal. The set looks very appealing like a rainbow served on your plate.

You can choose either vegetarian or non-vegetarian, both serving equally authentic Nepali tastes. This kind of meal usually comes with the opportunity to add more rice, lentils, veggies, and pickles. Plus, many places offer extras such as papad- a thin disc-shaped crispy food or mohi- which is a thin mixture of yogurt and water. These extras not only soothe the taste buds but also have dietary and digestive benefits.

Day 2Taste the popular momos & roti/naan -tandoori

Our tour guide will come to pick you up along with the private vehicle. Momo is hands down the unofficial national food of the country. Momo is a type of dumpling i.e. it is a meat or vegetable filling wrapped in dough. This Nepali dumpling is like no other and has developed a unique identity of its own with its exquisite flavors. It is bite-sized and served with a dipping sauce. Momo can be found in various shapes, sizes, styles, and even colors. The most common form of momo is the steamed momo. Fried momo, which is a deeply fried steam momo is also a favorite of the people in the capital. Other varieties of momo include kothey- base fried crispy momo, chilly- momo made with a spicy mix of capsicum, onions, peppers, etc., and jhol- momo in a flavored soup.

Acquired from Tibetans, momos (steamed or fried dumplings) deserve a mention as one of the most popular snacks among Nepali. Momos at local shops are the most loved by the people here. The size of the dumplings varies, depending on the price. The achaar (pickle) accompanying the steamed momos has a lip-smacking taste that lingers.

Recently, momos have undergone several modifications open momo, c-momo, tea momo, rainbow momo, etc. In the evening, you can taste the Roti and Nann-Tandoori chicken/ sekuwa (meat roasted in wood in traditional Nepalese style).

Day 4Tibetan food- boudha & taste juju dhau-bhaktapur, driving duration: 1-2 hours

Boudha has long established itself as the home of Tibetans within the Kathmandu Valley. In recent years, Boudha has started garnering attention for being the Tibetan food center of Kathmandu, and the credit in part to their contrasting taste to the typical Nepali palette and in part, of course, to the ambiance of peace and serenity that the sacred place bestows upon us. Popular foods to taste in Buddha: Laphing, Khapse, Thukpa, Thentuk, Shaphaly, etc. At Bhaktapur, you will taste the delicious Juju Dhau. The king of curds it is! Many companies throughout the world sell curd in amazing-looking packages, but none taste like Juju Dhau, rightfully known as King Curd. If you are in Nepal and have not tasted the thick, creamy, sweet, and soft Juju Dhau of Bhaktapur, your sweet tooth is lacking a treat. It is inexpensive, easily available, and amazingly delicious.
