Nepali Food and Bhutanese Food - DELICIOUS FEAST

Posted by Dhruba Shrestha May 13, 2017 :
Bhutan, we first started off by eating an amazing Bhutanese food breakfast. For lunch we enjoyed one of the best Nepali meals I’ve had. And finally in the late afternoon, we drove to Haa, Bhutan, and checked into a homestay. Yangkhil Restaurant and Bar - For breakfast, Yinga and I went to Yangkhil Restaurant and Bar to eat a local Bhutanese food breakfast. When we arrived, they hadn’t yet finished cooking all the dishes, but they did have a few dishes ready. The dish of the meat was the shukam shakam datshi, dry white chilies with dry beef in cheese. Additionally, the chili sauce here was on point! Nepali food at Cypress Hotel - For one of the best Nepali food restaurants in Thimphu, Bhutan, you hafe to go to Cypress Hotel. It’s a small friendly family run Nepali restaurant and they serve outstanding food. We had a Nepali feast, we couldn’t stop eating because it was so good. In the afternoon we then continued on to Haa Valley, Bhutan, where we’d spend the next couple days. It’s a beautiful place in Bhutan to visit. We checked into Haa Valley Farm Stay (Ugyen & Doley) and then had a delicious Bhutanese home-cooked meal including turnip leaves, dry pork and beef, and cheese.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
