Perfect restaurants are hard to find in Kathmandu. If the seating is good, chances are the menu is limited. If the menu has a wide variety of options, you might not like the ambience. Some places don’t serve breakfast food after noon, and you might be in the mood for pancakes and eggs at say 4pm. It’s always a toss between this or that while choosing a place to eat and chill.
Hunger Hub in Baneshwor, Kathmandu, is one of the best places we have come across. It has every food item you could think of and the seating arrangements are such that you can sit outdoors, indoors, or in a cozy corner if that’s what you prefer. That’s not it. There’s a bar area and big dining spaces, perfect for large family gatherings or meetings.
The food is delicious here. We recommend Timur Chicken. It’s tangy, spicy and juicy. Though timur (Sichuan pepper) is the main ingredient, the burst of flavors is due to just the right combination of spices. Another equally good starter is Buff Sadeko. Red meat marinated in a mixture of different spices, this dish is what you might want to order to kick start your meal. Or you could try the nachos. Trust us when we say it’s one of the best we’ve had so far. Also, the momos, served with two different achars, deserve a special mention.
There’s a lot of good food at Hunger Hub. But what’s even better is that since it’s a pretty large place, you can come alone or with friends and hang out for a while, with a book or a cup of coffee. The service is a bit slow but that’s a small complaint compared to how they have managed to get everything else just right. We’ve been to Hunger Hub twice in the last couple of months. And we will definitely be going back to try the dishes we haven’t had a chance to sample yet.
