Eating in Bhutan #1

28 09 2010

When traveling in Bhutan, because of the system and the whole policy of tourism the country operates by, though you are never forbidden to go out on your own to a restaurant of your choice, what normally happens is that visitors eat in hotel or other restaurants designated by their travel agents.  That’s all fine but this means that much of the time you may be eating non-authentic, non-local cuisine which could be uninteresting at times.  Also (perhaps) out of consideration to non-Bhutanese, the spiciness, which is one of the most distinct characteristics of Bhutanese food, is always downplayed.

Some of the food we had during the early leg of the trip in Thimphu during different hours of the day.
