Vegetarian Tibetan Food near Boudhanath Stupa, Kathmandu

Nepal has many interesting cuisines, which ranges from the vegetarian Daal Baat to the non-vegetarian Newari food to the extremely meat heavy mountain food from the Jomsom area. In between all of this, lies the delicious Tibetan food that is found in many pockets across the country. While they are heavy on beef, mutton and chicken, they have vegetarian options as well. On my recent visit to Kathmandu, I indulged in some of these vegetarian options at a traditional Tibetan restaurant near the Boudhanath Stupa.

I tried the Vegetarian Thukpa (Gyathuk), Vegetarian Thenduk (a thicker soup), delicious T-Momos and the Tibetan butter tea. The Thukpa comes with lots of vegetable with stiff noodles in a mild broth, while the Thenduk comes with flat rice noodles in a spicy thick broth with lots of vegetables. Personally, I preferred the texture and taste of the Thenduk over the Thukpa. And the T-Momo (steamed and partially crispy rice bread) is an ideal way to enjoy these 2 soups. And to finish your meal, you can sign off with the salty Tibetan Butter tea or if you don’t like its taste, you can do with a nice cup of hot honey ginger lemon.
