White Dzambala Tibetan Restaurant

Chinese in Bodhnath (Boudha)

It’s hard not to feel a twinge of guilt eating Chinese food in Tibetan Bodhnath, but this doesn’t seem to deter the local Tibetan businessmen and monks who come here to tuck into authentic Sichuanese gongbao jiding (spicy chicken with peanuts) or to nurse a wanzi fruit tea in the garden pavilions. It’s just 40m from the stupa and sees almost no tourists.
