We found the food markets fascinating in Bhutan. This photo is of a small one in the central part of the country, but we also loved the huge market in Thimpu and every small one we explored. There were many things we had never seen before and I will write a detailed report later.
People don't tend to go to Bhutan for Bhutanese cuisine or the markets, but we really enjoyed both. One learns much about a people through their food and markets. They love hot and spicy food and the national dish is called Ema Datshi which is cheese and chilis. I especially enjoyed the organically grown buckwheat pancakes, the organic potatoes and the many soups.
