NEPALI STREET FOOD feast in KATHMANDU, Nepal | Best MOMOS in Kathmandu + traditional Newari food

Nepal is home to over 100 different ethnicities so it’s safe to say that the food culture of this country is immense and diverse. We’re in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal to explore the food culture of this vibrant city. We start with a traditional Nepali breakfast at the bazaar of sel roti, gwaramari- a traditional Newari food and chiya (tea). We then head to a locals favourite for one of Nepal’s most beloved foods- momos (dumplings). We visit Patan, one of the three cities that make up the Kathmandu Valley to delve into Newari food- the Newar are the indigenous inhabitants of the Kathmandu Valley- and eat woh (often called bara), a lentil pancake at a hole in the wall Newar restaurant. We finish at a 4th generation family bakery that specialises in traditional Newar sweets and eat lakhamari, a sweet bread. We hope you enjoy this Nepali street food tour in Kathmandu, Nepal! #nepalistreetfood #nepal #nepalesefood

We’re all about eating what and where the locals eat. You won’t find food that’s been created merely to be social media worthy on here- no rainbow bagels, gold leaf soft serves- just genuine, authentic food that tastes incredible.

From street food to mom and pop restaurants, we want to show you the best and most authentic food we find on our travels.

Unique looking town and a bubbly, friendly hostess, but IMO very unhealthy food, everything being deep fried. Incidentally this sort of food is typical in India as well.

Been away from home for almost 4 years. You guys made me miss Nepalese food. Nothing can beat that warm fuzzy tea early in the chilly Kathmandu morning and delicious selroti to dip into that tea before you eat it . Tip is do not let the soaked tea fall from the selroti 🤭 and eat it right after you dip it in your tea. Momos are absolutely delicious and no wonder they are so popular even outside Nepal. 😋 Thank you so much guys.

More than the momo me and my bestfriend fill our stomach with the aachar😆😅. That's what every nepali teenagers do especially when they are from middle class family. But there is no other taste of momo than nepali momo. Thank you so much for showing our culture and food and introducing it to people. Lots of love from 🇳🇵 nepal.
