Nepalgunj is administrative, economic and transport hub of the mid-western region. It lies close to the border of India and adjacent to two national parks: Banke and Bardiya National Park. Not many outsiders realize that it is also a center of diverse food culture from Madhesi, Muslim, Tharu and Pahadi to influence from North Indian cuisines. The city has one of the largest Muslim communities in Nepal and has amazingly good Muslim foods. Foods are very affordable and street food culture is very vibrant. I stayed in Nepalgunj for a couple of days before and after the trek to beautiful Phoksundo lake in Dolpo to explore the foods the city has to offer. Here is the video on the popular and iconic foods of Nepalgunj you should definitely try while there.
