    I will never eat meat again in Nepal after seeing that picture. I lost 5kg and the bug lingered for months.

    FTFY

    Edit: and I have found the problem here, that yak page on wiki has been subject to some sneaky vandalism - evidence This just goes to demonstrate that we need to be careful to cross check sources.

    Sometimes the meat is fresh. Once, whilst enjoying the hospitality of a family around here... I was helping the kids round up some chickens, they caught one, then half an hour later I wandered into the kitchen to find it being butchered for our dahl bhat. We ate all of the animal, and I do mean all, flesh, offal even the claws and beak. Meeto cha! I felt an honoured guest. The thing I find awkward about Nepali cooking meat is that they often don't remove the bones and gristle, just chop it all up and cook it, so lots of small chunky bits to avoid swallowing.

    I enjoy a good steak when I get back to Kathmandu, my favourite being from K-Too. If you are feeling reckless then I recommend the blue cheese burger

    Nice! Thanks Escher. It would be good if sex addicts would convert to this kind of perversity, I guess...

    Here's my yak from Machermo, on a snowy April day in 2004.

    Looks like the Yak is being transformed into Yeti right before our eyes.

    Good photo.

    I think that might sound good for my final evening in Nepal. What sort of steaks are the best there? I like my beef rare.

    Best steaks available in Thamel, in my opinion, are from K-too's. Only a couple of hundred yards from the KGH. Imported beef from India. Nice and tender. Some I have had elsewhere have been tough as old boots.

    Sitting here drinking a beer and thinking of steak in K-too's. Hmm wish I was there right now.

    it is not safe to eat rare meat in Nepal.
    Cooking properly kills most bugs but not all
