What Makes It Awesome

I have heard and read about the beauty of Nepal but the discussion is never complete without praising the country’s gastronomic history. My desire to indulge in authentic Nepalese cuisine only doubled owing to the stories and experiences that my traveller friends had shared with me. And the persistent desire landed me at Bhansaghar restaurant on a fine Saturday afternoon.

As I stepped into the restaurant with my friends, we were greeted by the lovely host, Ms Juhi. A quick chit-chat with her reflected the reason behind the lively and lit vibe of the place. Everything at the restaurant, from its food and furniture to the playlist, was great. The restaurant has a home-like aura and the minimalist decor approach gives everyone a reason to love the place. The hanging lights elevate the decor and make every picture taken there Insta-worthy.

The description of lean meat, chunky vegetables and pickled ingredients at the Bhansaghar made me crave for the food instantly. We tried their Pork Choila, Aloo Tarkari, masala papad, veg thali, lemonade and fruit beer. Their pork was juicy and had just the right dash of garlic tinge to it. The Aloo Tarkari was accompanied with two dips, the spicy coriander dip and the sesame dip. I couldn’t get enough of the dips as the flavours made me crave for more.

The queen of the dishes was, indeed, the veg thali. You will be impressed with the presentation and quantity of the thali. It was a combo of rice, daal, aloo pickle, aloo gobi sabzi, coriander and sesame dip, and papad. Every bite from the thali justified the fancy description that travellers around me had used to describe the Nepalese cuisine. The Chicken Choila and other chicken dishes were equally scrumptious.

What Could Be Better?

Everything from food to the decor of the place was perfect. I just wish I could eat more.

What's My Pro Tip?

You can take a metro to Green Park and then an auto from thereon to reach the restaurant. Make sure you do not miss on trying their veg thali, Pork Choila, and Chicken Choila.

A digital marketeer by profession, I was bitten by the travel bug when I was 18 years old. My Mother had gifted me an envelope that had to and fro rail tickets to Gujarat. I had studied in a boarding school in Gujarat and was more than happy thinking about the reunion with my girlfriends who were still there in Ahmedabad and Anand. I was travelling alone but being backed up both morally and financially by my mother, I was a bit relaxed. That trip was where I first experienced the urge to say, ‘I was here, I saw this and it mattered to me.” There was no looking back post this! I was falling in love with the idea of picking up the bag and leaving for the unknown! The travel experiences started becoming a reminder of human insignificance and frailty. Today, I am most particularly in love with Himachal Pradesh. The landscape, the culture and the people here have become a special part of my life. And you will see most of my travel experiences talk about the same. A complete tea addict, nothing gives me more joy than a 'pahadi chai' with some butter toast! Looking forward to exploring and exchanging awe inspiring stories. Happy Travelling!
