Restaurants & Bars in Bhutan

Your guide to the culinary experiences in Bhutan

Food is indeed an important element of a travel program and at times one of the main factors in success of a trip. Travellers can delve deep into the culture and tradition of a region or develop more understanding of the place through the unique flavour the place has to offer.   restaurants-bhutan

Bhutan is not only a destination for cultural freaks and wanderlusts but also caters well to the call of food enthusiasts through its wide range of eating options from street food corners, midways cafeterias & town restaurants to luxury fine dining in world class hotels.

Owing to its location at the base of the Himalayas, Bhutanese weather is always on the cooler side so the food also tends to be prepared in ways to cope up with the cold weather. Besides food, travellers can find an incredible array of local and imported alcoholic drinks at bars throughout the country. The most popular local drinks are Chang (local fermented beer) and Arra (a spirit distilled from rice, maize, wheat, or barley).

Popular destinations of Thimphu, Paro and Punakha offer a wide range of restaurants to choose from serving Bhutanese, Indian, Chinese & Continental cuisine. However, when one moves to central (Trongsa & Bumthang) and eastern (Mongar, Trashigang, Samdrup Jongkhar) part of the country, there are limited choices and local hotels are the best venues for meal, offering some of favourite dishes in a friendly, homely environment. Moreover, there is nothing more satisfying than enjoying local delicacies such as the Ema Datsi’ (chilli curry cooked with cheese) and ‘Phaksha Paa’ (dried pork dish) at riverside, vantage points or at archery grounds amidst nature’s bounty during outdoor lunches.

Since inception of tourism, Bhutan has covered a long way catering as per the need of discerning travellers and there has been consistent improvement in quality & quantum of tourist standard restaurants.

Here are some of the popular restaurants & bars across the major tourist hubs in the country that offer sumptuous cuisines to beguile taste buds with tantalizing flavours.
