VIDEO: Newari Food – A Plate of Samay Baji

By Mark Wiens 8 Comments

While in Kathmandu, we stopped at a small restaurant to eat a traditional plate of samay baji, a common Newari food meal.

Newari cuisine is a genre of Nepali food that originates from the Kathmandu valley area of Nepal. While other cuisines in Nepal are similar to Tibetan food, Newari food is unique and extremely delicious!

    These 2 videos are my favorite thing you guys have ever produced. Man, I enjoyed this so much.

    I always knew I wanted to hike this trek, but I had NO IDEA it was this magnificent. Which is the exact same reaction I had to your recent Taj Mahal video and article.

    I’m going to have to say that these 2 videos are the single best thing I’ve ever seen on any travel website since late 2009 when I became a travel website junkie in need of my daily fix.

    Thank you!

    Raw oatmeal! I guess I would actually have to try it to see if this is something I would go for. The buffalo seems like you really enjoyed it. The people looked like they are not used to being on camera. Really enjoying the food videos!

      Thanks a lot Thomas, I was expecting it to be too crunchy or dry to eat, but somehow it really worked well and tasted great!

    Hi Mark,
    Hope you’re heading back to Thailand soon as the food looks nowhere near as fresh or exciting

    Nice video ! The cuisine is really yummy as I had it on my last visit there. At times, I really feel craving for this cuisine.
