Recommendation by Lemi
A visit to the Folk Heritage Museum’s in-house restaurant is a rite of passage for any visitor to Thimphu! Feast on a banquet of authentic Bhutanese food made with locally farmed and organic produce. Spoon a bit of Ema Datshi (dried chilis with cottage cheese) or Sikam Paa (dried pork belly with chilis) into your own bowl of rice; then, do as the locals do and dig in with your hands! There’s plenty to go around the table since servings are generous. Between bites, cool down your palate with a sip of their Suja (herbal tea with yak butter). Reservations are required, so book a low table on the patio for the full experience!
