Chig-ja-gye at Taj Tashi (Taj Tashi Hotel, Samten Lam, Thimphu) – this is a pure-Bhutanese restaurant, not only its menu but its decor as well. Located within the luxury Taj Tashi Hotel (built with traditional Bhutanese dzong architecture along with more contemporary touches), a wealth of locals dishes are offered here, such as Ema Datshi (regarded at the country’s national dish – a fiery mix of chili peppers and yak cheese). Buddhist prayer wheels can be seen from the restaurant’s windows (reinforcing its Bhutanese credibility).
