KATHMANDU: The Lowenbrau Oktoberfest has begun at the Sunrise Café of Hotel Yak and Yeti from September 21. Decorated in white and blue, with candles and balloons completing the look, the Café is set for annual German festival.

The fest began on a festive mood with good food to accompany the flowing beer. Soft instrumental numbers played lent a romantic mood to the ambience.

“This year this festival will hopefully be more successful and meet expectations as Dashain has fallen in the same week,” said the hotel’s General Manager Pralhad Raj Kunwar.

Emphasising the changes this year he added, “The price is very reasonable and even the weather seems on our side.” There is more than enough food laid out and the items have the local German taste.

“We have prepared every item apt to this festival and every item has the power to impress the Nepali tongue too,” said Ratna Thapa, kitchen executive.

The dinner menu has numerous food items from cold buffet to

hot buffet with an assortment of

enticing dessert items. Frankfurter and Glazed ham carving are typical Oktoberfest meat dishes. Franfurter are the thick chicken sausages

and the reddish oil dripping ham can satisfy the non-vegetarians

to the heart. The fest is on till September 26.
