Yak Café


Another unpretentious and reliable Tibetan-run place at the other end of Thamel. The booths give it a ‘Tibetan diner’ vibe and the clientele is a mix of trekkers with their Sherpa guides and local Tibetans who come to shoot the breeze over a cigarette and a tube of tongba (hot millet beer). The menu includes Tibetan dishes, with good kothey (fried momos), and South Indian food, at unbeatable prices.

It feels just like a trekking lodge, down to that familiar electronic sound of a chicken being strangled every time a dish is ready.
