This 5-hour culinary experience is for travelers who love food. The itinerary is specially designed to give you the opportunity to taste cuisine from different regions in the Kathmandu Valley. Try dishes such as 'samay baji, a traditional Newari dish in Nepal; momo a popular nepali food and finish with a sweet yoghurt dessert that is an important component of Nepali festivals. 

Departing your Kathmandu Valley hotel by private vehicle, meet your guide for a 5-hour food tasting tour. Once you reach the venue, you'll start with a set meal featuring samay baji, or Newari khaja, a traditional dish that is a regular feature at many festivals in Nepal. 

Popular for its unique taste, cooking style, and natural spices, the plate includes chiura (husked rice); wo (mashed lentil cake); aloo ko achar (potato salad); chhoela (smoked goat, buffalo, or chicken); fried bhatmas (soybean); fried bodi (black-eyed beans with spices, garlic, and ginger paste); saag (salted leafy greens); fried anchovies; lava-palu (fresh garlic and ginger); and aila (home-made rice wine).

It is accompanied by momo, a traditional specialty that consists of minced meat (or vegetables, tofu, paneer cheese, or vegetable and meat combinations) inside a round pocket or crescent-shaped rolled dough. These dumplings are steamed and usually served with a dipping sauce, locally called achar, made with tomato as the base ingredient.

Afterward, you're taken to Bhaktapur for a taste of juju dhau, a sweetened custard-like yogurt that can be enjoyed any time of day as a snack, with a Nepali meal, or as dessert. Conclude your feast with drop-off at your hotel.
