Why to visit Folk Heritage Restaurant

The Folk Heritage Restaurant, which is part of the Folk Heritage Museum complex, has something for every season, and it isn't only the food.

The Authentic Bhutanese Food experience includes a four-course meal that begins with a traditional Tea & Wine Offering and concludes with a variety of seasonal fruits gathered from the orchard right in front of your eyes. While modern cooking facilities are available, traditional meals cooked in earthen pots over an open fire stove are also available.

A BBQ can be enjoyed among the trees while sitting in the apple orchard. You can also sit on the terrace and take in the beauty while sipping traditional butter tea and ara (home-brewed rice wine). During the cold winter days, one may warm themselves inside the restaurant, which is encircled by rammed earth walls that evoke memories of a bygone era.

As a passion initiative to promote Bhutanese culinary talents, the Folk Heritage Museum Restaurant launched in 2010. Folk Heritage Museum Restaurant delivers an array of over 60 vegetarian meals and over 100 non-vegetarian traditional mouth-watering foods, depending on the season, as an enterprise under the Chuniding Vision, Revival, Preservation, and Innovation in Bhutanese eating traditions.

Special Tip

The buckwheat pancake served at the restaurant is extremely popular and delicious, with a particular flavour that may be rather powerful!
