Of all the things I love about Nepal, the food (and the tea) have got to be right near the top.
The food is always delicious, it is vegetarian based with meat options (rather than the other way round) and the combination of rice, beans and vegetables seems agree with my body much more than other cuisines. Which means I am often bounding off the walls with energy here.
This post is a collection of a few photos I’ve picked up along the way.

Freshly ground fennel seed seems to make it’s way into most dishes.
Gundruk or dried spinach – considered the Nepali national food
“Mountain soup”, made with Gundruk
Veg Thali – a combination of daal (lentil soup), curry, vegetables, pickle and a mountain of rice. We eat this every day, twice a day, and always it contains different vegetables, curries and pickles. If I ate Veg Thali every day for the rest of my life I would be happy.
