Tucked away in a peaceful neighbourhood in Bhaisepati is the Garage Cafe serving a mixture of local, continental and Pan-Asian cuisine. The ambience reflects a tropical theme with outdoor seating and plenty of greenery, gravel leddining area and an ambience that feels good. The restaurant, started in March 2021, has gained a huge following for family events, as a hang-out, and even as a pit stop for bikers.
It’s a Sunday evening, the sun is setting and there is good music playing in the background when we meet the Executive Chef, Tejan Limbu, who understands that Nepalis love their food, love trying out new things but tend not to stray away too much from the traditional palate. We are served Katsu Tofu and rice that are simply perfect leaving us deliciously light and fulfilled.
We then try the porkchops served with vegetables and a lovely sauce infused with garlic and rosemary. Its juicy, crunchy and savoury, each bite surprisingly delicious. We also tried the flat-pressed pork belly, a classic and uncomplicated dish served with salt and pepper and chutney.
Over refreshing cocktails and mocktails that the bartender recommended, we watch the other tables fill up with people having a good time. We tried the thermal radiation and hazel berry drink that went perfectly with the sukuti which was served with salad, chutney and slices of lemon.
The authentic taste and the great ambience will definitely have us coming back for more. All in all, we had a great afternoon with incredible food and drinks to try, and have no hesitation in recommending the Garage Café to our foodie readers.
