Food and Drink:  The Nepali staple dish is daal bhaat tarkaari (literally lentil, rice and vegetables).   At the hotels and lodges that World Discovery use, of course, there is a wider choice than this!  Hotels will serve a mixture of Nepalese, Indian and Western cuisine.  Nepalese cuisine (Newari dishes especially) tends to include many spices, and some westerners may find the taste to be on the hot side.  Bottled water is recommended, even in the better hotels and restaurants.  Tea and coffee are widely served, and beer is reasonably priced - the local Gorkha beer is excellent.  Wines are imported and can be very expensive.
