Nepali food is not a freeway like the Chinese or Indian taste. It's a shuttle and a protagonist taste of amazing spices and herbs that are balanced among the most amazing experience of the taste world.
to be very specific, it is  not vague and intriguing with spices and heat, its a more abrupt and sensitive taste of rich ingredients of the food where the spices are the main stars but an added bonus of the ingredients.

If you think Momos, chowmins  and dalbhat is the way to Nepali food then you are completely wrong. Nepal food has an edge with a more shuttle taste with a stingy broth taste.

To be specific every Nepali craves for Gundruk soup that is rich in flavor and taste and to be very frank if you come to Nepal that is the real taste of Nepal gastronomical wonder.
It can be used in so many way fried and made into a pickle or massed and mixed with curry but the most popular Nepali style is a broth that is very stinky for the outsider but very soothing and tasty for the native soul. you want the real taste of Nepal you gotta try Gundruk in the most spunky way to feel the food adventure of Nepal.  It is the food of the hilly people where most of the times the temperatures are very fluctuating and due to this there is scarcity of food and shortage of other food items the Nepalese have been preserving their food in-terms of their tradition and culture in the most wonderful way of practicing this gastronomical wonder. Every time I smell a Gundruk my mouth waters in the most enchanting way of feeling a true nepali. Nepal in every way possible is a

Though can be closely related to Kimche in smell but has a rich and specific taste that enhances the nepali dhal bhat in the most spectacular way.

Gangri Sumai Resturant and its open momo

Located in the middle of Teku, Sumai is famous among MOMO lovers for its open Momo that is both tasty and very unique. People  who want to have the real taste of Nepalese Momo should try this momo, its a must and highly recommended.

The Sumai Restaurants are located in various location of Pulchowk, Indrachowk and Teku where you can  enjoy the taste at its best.

Mostly famous in the city as a lunch spot its crowed during the lunch hours, so its not recommended to go during the wee hours.

One more thing that may come handy, the Sumai restaurants are closed on Tuesday and open 6 days a week.  

The restaurant is one of the oldest but when it comes to hygiene and cleanliness the place simply looks old and sad. Similarly, the staff is also not  friendly and they behave in a very sad way.

Nanglo Express the taste of the ethnicity

You might have been surfing around in New Road trying to find out an eatery but beside the New-Road Supermarket on the alley there is a small opening that welcomes you to a petite corner ground restaurant. With sleek decor and small menu it may seem very unique but the cuisine are very tantalizing and exquisite.

The urban sleek furniture is just perfect for a causal lunch that gives you that cozy feeling, moreover the best part is its menu that welcomes you to the best price that is available.

Wisely management and well stargazed the you have to pay and then the order finds your way in the most unique crockery that is just awesome.

The small menu offers a variety of food items from momos to choyla to chowmein to dal bhat everything is served with precision of taste and will energize your taste bud.

From my side I would surely recommend the chicken choyla that mouth watering. I can guarantee that once you get the taste, you will surely be returning to the place again.

Though VAT simply is one of the extra pain factor but quality comes at a price.
