“Wow, Yomari!” is the enthusiastic exclamation at Nandini for this sweet dish made with rice flour and filled with delightful ingredients such as Chaku (molasses) or Khuwa. At Nandini, one can’t resist ordering Yomari. These days, Yomari has blossomed into one of the beloved Newari dishes. According to data from Nandini Food Court, they sell a minimum of 300 Yomaris per day. During the Yomari festival, queues form outside the restaurant.
Eight years ago, Nandini Food Court opened its doors—a set of three wooden doors located in Swotha, Patan. The restaurant exclusively serves Newari cuisine, one of the oldest cuisines in the world.
For the past five years, I’ve been loving Nandini’s food. Whenever I go there, I make sure to try everything. I usually start with Yomari, a sweet dish that’s just amazing. After that, I go for Samay Baji, which is like an appetizer with local Nepali whiskey called Aaila. It’s a mix of savory and spicy flavors that I really enjoy.
But the feast doesn’t stop there. Nandini has other tasty options like Sapoo Mhicha, Khago, and Bara, which are all delicious in their own way. Sometimes, I also treat myself to Chatamari. Every dish at Nandini is a burst of flavors, and that’s why I keep going back for more.
If you’re a fan of amazing food experiences, I highly recommend checking out Nandini! I’ve been in love with this place for five years, and every visit is a flavorful adventure.
The ambiance is welcoming, and the authenticity of the Newari cuisine is truly something special. Whether you’re a food enthusiast or just looking for a great meal, Nandini is the place to be. Trust me, each dish is a celebration of flavor, making it a must-visit for anyone seeking a delightful culinary experience!
