Afterword

ThimphuTech was the first technology blog in Bhutan. We started writing it in 2009, just as broadband and mobile internet started to take off. (Although internet in Bhutan was launched in 1999, it was either super-slow or super-expensive, and was only used by a selected few).

In the blog, we wrote about technology and food, but also about plenty of other stuff. The blog became popular and influential in Bhutan. A companion bi-weekly column -- Ask Boaz -- was published for many years in the Kuensel, Bhutan's national newspaper. (The complete Kuensel columns are available as an ebook, Blogging with Dragons).

We stopped updating the blog when we left Bhutan in 2014, but the information within the posts can still prove useful, and thus we decided to keep it online.

We thank all our readers.
Tashi Delek,
Boaz & Galit.

French Toast at Big Bakery

Finding breakfast in Thimphu is a challenge. Seasons Pizzeria used to have some breakfast items on their menu, but the last time I checked the items were removed. So it was a nice surprise today to find a new item on Big Bakery's menu: French toast. The menu was recently revamped by Yoko san, the bakery's new pastry chef.

When you order Big Bakery's french toast you'll get three warm, thick slices of the bakery's Pullman bread, dipped in milk and egg, gently fried and finally dusted with confectioners' sugar. The damage: only Nu 30. Quite possibly the best value in town, and a delicious and inexpensive way to start your morning.
