Kathmandu Food Tour

Kathmandu Food Tour is a great for anyone interested in trying local favorite dishes and some more adventurous foods that can only be found in Nepal. This tour is not only a perfect way to discover  the food scene in Nepal, but also to learn about Kathmandu and the history of Nepal.

All our guides leading the food tour are interesting and fun, knowledgeable and young locals who know Kathmandu like the back of their hand and grew up eating at the same food stalls as included in the tour.

The Kathmandu Food Tour is hours long with flexible start times from 9 AM to 7 PM. This our participants have then the opportunity to taste amazingly flavorful foods in Kathmandu’s off-the-beaten-track side-alleys and streets. Finding vegan food in Kathmandu is also no problem!

If you are planning to discover Kathmandu away from its tourist corners and want to see exactly what and where the locals actually hang out and eat—this tour is just for you!

In fact, it’s the most interesting and fun way to experience Kathmandu just like a local.

Kathmandu Food Tour – Highlights

  • The Kathmandu Food Tour will take you to the 4 to 5 most popular places populated only by the locals!
  • The 10 epic dishes you get to try on the tour while also passing by a number of local temples located within the alleys.


Food Tour & Sightseeing

Your English-speaking tour guide will meet and greet you at the hotel or your specific place. You will then receive safety instructions on how to ride a bike or a scooter properly to ensure the safest experience.

You will go with the flow in the busiest of Kathmandu the way we, the local, do: all from the back of the bike. We ride through the beautiful back alleys and the busy streets, which is undoubtedly more awesome of an experience than looking through pictures in your handbook!

After 10-15 minutes, you will be at our first street vendors for a real local food, where there is no tourist at all. It’s not always about eating, but we’re also talking, sharing, and showing you the background of those interesting dishes. And of course, how to eat in a right Nepalese way. So, you will have your chance to sample not only the Momo but also Sekuwa (traditional Street BBQ in Nepalese style) Chow-mein, sound good right?

At this point, you are literally quite full, don’t worry, our guide takes you around Kathmandu and discover one of Nepal’s most vibrant places. We will sit down to taste coffee in the hidden coffee shop. It is so good and that is why it has its place in everyone’s bucket list when coming to Kathmandu.

Are you full now?, cause we still got our last stop for the dessert. Let’s try some Nepalese sweet desserts that will leave a great taste and impression about our cuisine.

After closing the tour, we will drive you back to your hotel. Give you all the best wishes in your upcoming vacation.
