With the idea of promoting the essence of Nepali food, Nisha Sen Thakuri along with her partner opened up Lapsi Garden about four months ago. The restaurant is located in Pani Pokhari just behind Japanese Embassy and offers a relaxing ambience surrounded by trees and greenery. The building Lapsi Garden is operating on has two storeys - the restaurant on the first floor and an adjacent spa on the ground floor.
It’s not secret that Nepalis love to eat out. The burgeoning of restaurants and bars stand testimony to that fact. But what’s also true is that, at the end of day, we all want home-cooked dal-bhat. And if you live away from home or go abroad for a trip, you know that feeling when your entire being craves the familiar taste of local spices and textures.
20-year-old Sushita Gurung has promised to treat her friends to a nice meal at Hankook Sarang after she gets paid this month. Like Sushita, 19-year-old Jeena Shrestha has plans to visit Boudha with her friends for some laphing, a Tibetan delicacy that is a spicy cold mung bean noodle, once the weekend rolls in. Food is an inherent part of our lifestyles, and indulging in good food is something we all look forward to.
