We like to treat ourselves with food from time to time. And we really wanted to try the Newari food here in Nepal. Newari are an ethnic group in Nepal who had a strong role in forming the culture. They are stated to have some weird food on their menu like raw meet and bloody sausage. Eeew. We decided to go to Thamel House restaurant where they have a menu for 950/1050 (without VAT) for veg/nonveg menu. We ate: Starters Alu Tareko: fried potato with spices Momo: steamed…

After a day without speaking (yes, it was one of those days) it was time for another cooking class! We wanted to learn how to make momos for a long time as we both adore them 🙂 We chose Socialtours which we found on TripAdvisor. We started the class with a cup of tea and met our classmates from America. Then we went to buy veggies and chicken for our momos. The thing with momos is that you have to finely chop everything.

We were looking for a town where we could relax and rent a scooter to discover nearby roads and landscape. Out of our budget 🙂  …

I love Asian food, especially spicy curry. Or sushi. Or Tom Yum! Anything goes, I guess. I found it best if you buy basic ingredients in a local Asian market, like curry pastes and soup pastes and then just add the fresh ingredients.

There isn’t much markets specialized for Asian cuisine in…
