WE THINK: Fact: there are body builders in Bhutan. Another fact: the best one each year is called Mr. Bhutan. We loved the charming service and lovely food at this slightly touristy but nonetheless authentic Bhutanese restaurant above Planet Gym in Thimpu. The beef stew was tasty and the spinach fresh and crunchy. The staple red rice was, as always, delicious when accompanied by our new-found favourite dish, chilli cheese, and the clean-tasting Ara ensured that we left Bhutan Kitchen with our digestive system cleaned and germ-free.
