Well, Bhutan doesn’t really have much street food, but Tibetan Uncle is about as close to the street food atmosphere in Thimphu as you can get, and it’s amazing.

On Day 11 of our food and travel trip to Bhutan, we were in Thimphu. We met up with Matt for breakfast and he took us to a place he named Tibetan Uncle, a friendly uncle who makes an assortment of Bhutanese and Tibetan food. The little restaurant is as local and street food style as you can get in Thimphu, tucked in a tiny little room at the back of a strip mall.
Tibetan Uncle (Peace Restaurant) – Order anything he has for the day, everything is good at Tibetan. The momos and chili sauce were amazing, and the beef phingsha and Tibetan food curry and ting momos were delicious.
Zombala Restaurant – One of the first restaurants in all of Bhutan is Zombala restaurant, located in the heart of Thimphu. They specialize in light meals like momos, fried rice, and chow mein. The momos were again excellent.
Bhutan Kitchen Restaurant – For dinner we went to Bhutan Kitchen restaurant, another traditional Bhutanese food restaurant in Thimphu. For traditional Bhutanese food, I thought this was one of the better sit down restaurants in Thimphu.
It was an honor to be invited by MyBhutan to visit Bhutan to explore Bhutanese food and culture. Thank you to MyBhutan Productions for making my trip and this video possible!
