Food & Drink

Food culture in Bhutan is deeply influenced by the landscape, as Bhutan is nestled in the Himalayas. Meanwhile, eating habits in Bhutan are affected by neighboring countries like China and India. Rice and meat dishes are most common, but there are also plenty of vegetables and fruit.

Bhutanese love spicy food so much that they add chilies to almost every dish, and it is the most distinctive feature of Bhutanese cuisine. And the combination of chili and cheese makes Bhutanese cuisine even more special. In most hotels, meals are buffet-style. There are few restaurants in main towns now. All tourist hotels have a good selection of international and Bhutanese beverages.
