Forget momos. Forget dal bhat. Here's a meal that will shatter all common notions of a Nepali diet. Are you ready for it? This is what the Purna's buffalo spread has in store for you: brains, lungs, tongues, blood, intestines, bone marrow and eyeballs. And Purna has also promised that if he can get his hands on some bull testicles (apparently in high demand and difficult get hold of in the markets) he will include those in the menu too! :) And no, Nepalis do not eat these parts for medicinal or aphrodisiac properties. Nepalis eat it simply because they like the taste!
While consuming the internal organs of an animal are not a common fare in all parts of Nepal, the inhabitants of Kathmandu in particular simply relish it. The practice of preparing these organs are ancient and stems from the food habits where no part of the animal would go for waste. Purna likes to keep his preparation style and recipes a secret so as much as we'd like to reveal the process here, you'll just have to summon the culinary adventurist in you and prepare yourself to cook a brainy meal. :p Sign up for our Kathmandu Fear Factor Challenge and find out! ;)
Note: The guests can choose up to 7 organs for this activity. The list of organs are:
4. Small Intestines+Liver

List out the seven organs that you want to cook and let us know when you book :)
