Food Story of Nepal

 

Nepal is an ethnically and culturally diverse country, and one benefit of this is that there is an impressive array of local cuisine. Nepalese food has been strongly influenced by both India and Tibet, and in places like Kathmandu there is a growing interest in western dishes.

 

Much of the local cuisine (particularly from the Himalayan region) receives a good deal of praise for its health giving properties.
