Nepal's culinary tradition is as rich as its multi-ethnic culture. It is quite impossible to pick the best Nepal eats as each ethnic group has its own specialty. A good suggestion then is to try what every locality has to offer.
Truly diverse and unique, Nepali foods are exciting to savour when you visit the country. They are not just tasty and varied; they are also a source of balanced diet. Because the ingredients are varied, the plate looks colourful and playful. Here are some of important food items you must not miss when you visit Nepal:
