you have come to the right place. In fact, we would like to introduce a Nepalese culinary
experience like no other with our very own, Thakali Khana Set.
Thakali Khana Set: A Perfect Harmony of Taste, Texture and Tradition
Our Thakali Khana Set originates from the Thak Khola region in Nepal’s Mustang district. A
signature Nepalese meal, this dish consists of an enticing blend of flavours, with the Everest
Dine touch. Highly popular in areas like Kathmandu, it is thought to be a comfort food,
boasting nutritious value and cultural significance.
The history of this meal is rooted in the ancient trade route that connected Nepal and Tibet,
made with local ingredients and served to sustain travellers during tiring and long journeys.
As its popularity started to spread across the country, the meal became representative of
the Thak Khola region, symbolising community – after all, the meal is communal in nature.
A Robust Blend of Flavours
The Thakali Khana Set combines a collection of ingredients, creating bold and distinctive
flavours that simply elevate its appeal. A typical Thakali dish will consist of dal-bhat-tharkari
(lentils, rice, vegetables, and (sometimes) meat). Other ingredients, such as gundruk
(fermented leafy greens) may also be added for an extra tang to the meal. Condiments such
as chap (chilli powder, timur, salt) accompany this hearty meal as well.
Together, these ingredients forge a Nepalese culinary masterpiece that offers the perfect
combination of taste and texture.
