Thakali Bhanchha

Nepali in Kathmandu

If, after having travelled all the way to Nepal, you actually fancy some Nepali food(!), this upstairs restaurant is a good bet and popular with local Thamel workers on their lunch break. Most opt for the favourful and bottomless daal bhaat, but there’s also a range of Thakali beer snacks such as fried bandel (boar) and roasted bhatmas (soybeans).

For the full-on local experience, swap the rice for dhido, the doughy buckwheat paste eaten daily by millions of Nepalis.
