ASIA'S RARE FOOD | Sherpa food in KATHMANDU, NEPAL | Nepali + Tibetan food tour in Kathmandu

We're in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal to explore the food culture of this vibrant city and region. We head to Boudha, a part of the Kathmandu Valley which has a high concentration of Sherpa and Tibetan communities. The food in this region of Kathmandu is utterly unique and completely different to the Newar and Nepali food we have share in previous episodes. We eat at local Sherpa restaurants and sample rildok (potato dumplings) and rikikur (potato pancakes) as well as phalghi a Sherpa stew. We then explore some Tibetan food including gyuma- Tibetan blood sausage at a quirky restaurant and buffalo thukpa- a hearty noodle soup. We hope you enjoy this food tour of Kathmandu! #nepalistreetfood #nepal #nepalifood

What we ate and where we ate it: 

1. Rildok (potato dumplings) and Rikikur (potato pancakes) at Himalayan Sherpa Food House, the first restaurant on the left down the alley next to Namaste Beads Handicrafts, बौद्ध सडक, 44602, Nepal. Open daily.

We’re Thomas and Sheena, food and travel fiends. We travel full time, hunting for the BEST local food in the world to showcase via our YouTube videos. Food is a window into a country's culture and one of the most exciting ways to get to know a place.

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.
