Roti and fruit shops in Nepal

While I was shopping in Nepal for my nephew’s Pasni, I went to many Roti shops and fruit shops. I was so fascinated by the items on the shelves that I took the photos of so many varieties of rotis and fruits. You will notice that there are many varieties of rotis and I don’t even know the names. Also fruit shops are so different from the ones in Australia, I was just fascinated.

  1. I visited Nepal 14 years ago (Our Honeymoon) and seems like the sweet-shops have drastically changed their menu. Lot of fusion sweets (I guess that’s the trend in entire sub-continent)
    Any Himalaya exclusive fruit?

    • There are lots of traditional sweets still available in Kathmandu. They are specialised shops where you can order pure ghee sweets for occasion but you are right, they are lots of fusion ones as well. I am still loving traditional ones I can’t buy them in Sydney.
      I will love to read about your trip to Nepal some day 🙂

  2. I’m affectionately known as the roti-slut because I could nothing but that with butter all day, everyday 😉

    My mouth is watering at all those yummy sweetmeats, OMG.

    • hehehe, Thisis first for me to hear about roti-slut.OMG you should definitely try these ones , they are full of butter and ghee so super yummy 🙂 I am sure you will love them.

  3. From reading my blog you know I loooooove food pictures…my mouth was watering looking at these photos! The markets are definitely the hub of action in any country =)

  4. I love sundala and blue grapes. 2 minuts from our home is such an sweet shop……I allways there 😉

  5. I’m glad I just ate lunch. 🙂

  6. Wow -So many many pics ‘re . They all look so delicious – specially the sweets 🙂

  7. My family were in the business of fruits for a very long time in Kathmandu up until few years back. After seeing how it is done in Australia, I tried to recommend changes while I was there few times. They would never listen. Each time I was told I don’t know. The way businesses are done are very different to the way it is run here. In my family’s case, I think they did not want to make the shop look “stand out” as the shop was in the market place. Other shops would intentionally lower the price just to pinch our customer or in some ways they have power to control the sales in our shop.

    By the way, I miss eating those fruits growing up. Lot of the produce used to be local and Indian. Now a days, we are seeing quite a lot of Chinese fruits too. Unfortunately locals find them expensive to afford with the exception of seasonal fruits. I think fewer varieties than here in Australia.

    Rarely would I write on a blog had the topic not been what it is. Lots of good and not so good memories.A mere fruit shop it was, my family managed to get so much out of it.
    Thank you to dear Buwa. Rest in peace.

    In another note, I am not sure I should be asking this, Do you allow to republish your work on other websites too? I have created a Nepali dating site, I would like to publish some of relevant articles.

  8. Hi M! Thank you for sharing all those pictures; I can’t wait to go to Nepal to visit with my sweet A one day 🙂 and try all those delicious fruits and rotis… PS… I’m feeling hungry now
