Thakali Kitchen information
If, after having travelled all the way to Nepal, you actually fancy some Nepali food (!), this upstairs restaurant is a modern place popular with local Thamel workers on their lunch break. Most opt for the daal bhaat (rice, curry and lentil soup) but there’s also a range of Thakali snacks such as bandel (wild boar) and aa lang kho, a dried meat, cheese and radish soup. For the full-on local experience, replace the rice with dhido, a doughy buckwheat paste eaten daily by millions of Nepalis.
