As you can see in this pic, you order a traditional Nepali lunch (can't remember what it's called) and you get so many different yummy things. At a local restaurant, this dish costs around 30-50 Nepal Rupees, which is about around 50 or 60 cents. But at a touristy restaurant in the tourist area you'll pay about 200 Nepal Rupees and it most likely will be a smaller portion, and not taste as good. We always try and eat outside the touristy areas whenever we can.
White rice, 2 different curries, lentil soup, steamed spinach & greens, salad, pickle sauce, and fresh yogurt!
This is one of my new favorites, it's called Momo. You can find plates of Momo like this for 15 or 20 Rupees (25 cents). They give you a curry dipping sauce with it, so good!! This one was from the KEEP center in Kathmandu. Cool place.
But then you'll eat all this wonderful food and walk out of the restaurant and see stuff like this! It's easy to tell yourself that your pork wasn't from a pig laying on a table in the open air like this one... but in the back of your mind... you know it totally was! haha
