“Plant-Based Dine-Out” | Episode 01
Utpala, Kathmandu / Nepal
Utpala is a vegetarian and vegan restaurant located in Boudha, Kathmandu. It is about 5 minutes walking distance from Boudhanath Stupa. It is a little bit difficult to find if you are traveling to Boudha for the first time but you can ask around the shops and there are navigations around the stupa. When you reach Utpala you will find a piece of calmness. The place is big and spacious. You can sunbathe and have lunch at the same time. There is a big garden in the back where they grow their own greens and herbs. You can notice people from different ethnic backgrounds of Nepal and from around the world in Utpala. There are many monks who eat here as a part of their daily diet. The food here is fresh and healthy. They serve food from around the world for breakfast, lunch, and dinner with different menus. I love the space and food at Utpala.
