Fusing tradition with a modern twist on authentic Nepalese Street Food

What is Nepalese food like?

Nepal serves up a wonderful fusion of flavours through its food. Not only are there many fantastic dishes and ingredients which are uniquely and traditionally Nepalese, but thanks to the country’s geographical position, the cuisine has been influenced by neighbouring countries including China, India, Tibet and the Middle East.

For example, dishes will use similar spices to Indian cooking (ground cumin, coriander, turmeric etc), as well as as those used in Chinese cooking such as sesame.

Plus, Nepalese cooking generally uses a lot of whole spices, as well as ground, for a more fragrant and aromatic flavour, especially spices native to Nepal. This includes the likes of ‘Timur‘ (a peppercorn similar to Szechuan pepper), black cardamon and Himalayan black salt.

We’ll be serving up food based on authentic dishes found in both the street markets and the homes of Nepal! Our menu will vary across different events but we’ve included some of our favourites below, to give you a taste of what to expect….
