This bakery is amazing selling everything from chocolate croissants to freshly cooked bread and cookies. The chef at this hotel used to work at the Brezel Bakery in Thamel so definitely knows how to make a good pastry.
Favorite Dish: Definitely the cocolate croissant
All of the lodges on the trek have a wide range of food available - you will honestly be amzaed what they can rustle up on a small stove at 3000+m. You can pick from a choice of local food, such as thukpa and shykpa (noodle soups) and of course dal bhat. But there is also others such as spaghetti, macaroni, pizza and soups.
We came up tired and thirsty from Dunche and were the only guests one December evening. Carefully we asked if the lodge served any food, and the ladies laughed and sent across a school exercise book: inside were 108 - the holy number - recipies. Pick any one!
We were delighted with the view, the place itself, the big iron stove and the homely atmosphere, and the food did not disappoint. There were a base of dried foodstuffs; vegetables, fruits, meat, cheese and fresh dairy products from the neighbour, the cheese factory. Everything ordered was quickly made and delicious.
Exactly 10 year later I came back to the same place and some of the same staff were there: same experience - the food was great. With more trekkers about, there was less of a homely atmosphere, but nothing else was missing. This is a place you can hang out for the food and the conversation and the view alone.
Favorite Dish: Their apple pancake with honey (tried twice with a 10 year interval is a great after-trek-delight. Otherwise, the regular trekking food is fine.
Good tea, too, and the odd sip of beer brough up from below. Chang is also available.
