Ang Yangdu Sherpa’s client wanted to taste Korean food, but there was not a restaurant that can serve Korean food in the Boudha area at that time, encouraging her to start one.

Gradually, she also worked to transport the taste buds of locals. Saan Sarang Korean Restaurant is a place for family dining, Ang Yangdu says. A major dish in Korea is the Pork barbeque. “The customer can make it themselves and a family can spend quality time doing the barbeque on their own”, said Sherpa.
