All this (good) food in this much money?! | What I had in Nepal

You get to know a lot about a place from the type of food they serve. On my recent visit to Kathmandu and Pokhara I’ve tried out some amazing food places that truly show how the food scene in these places has grown to fit the taste of the wave of tourists that flock these areas. Nepal overall is a great place to enjoy tasty food at really cheap prices. To add to that, their portions are really generous too. The bill would always come less than what we’d expect. Which is why every time I was left exclaiming to myself “All this food in this much money?!”

New Orleans Cafe: Visited this place on our first day at Kathmandu. It was around 4pm and we hadn’t eaten anything since we got off the plane at around 1pm.

Among them the momo tasted the best as both the pastas were a bit too bland for our taste-buds. Overall the food was not amazing but the courtyard style interior with laid back sitting arrangements and intriguing tourists made up for it.
