We browsed Urbanspoon to look for a nice restaurant close to our hotel in MacLeod Trail. Himalayan Nepalese Cuisine was in the options. It has good reviews and ratings and so no second thoughts we drove to look for it. We haven’t tried a Nepalese cuisine yet so we thought it would be a great idea to try it. When we got there, we were greeted warmly by their staff. We loved the atmosphere right away, we thought the venue was very pleasant. The friendly staff escorted us to our seats and handed us the menu. Without even asking, they gave us ice cold water which was a sign of good service for me.
The table arrangement is neat. Somewhat 85% casual dining and 15 % fine dining. All the utensils are clean and clear.
For starter, we had 6 pieces of Chicken Momo, nepali style dumplings. It’s minced chicken in a flour wrap with different kinds of herbs and spices mixed with it. It was steamed and was served with tomato and spiced base dipping sauce. It’s lovely and make you some more!
Another starter that we had was the Fish Tareko, basa fish cutlets dunked in a chick pea batter and fried to perfection. Served with hot sauce.
For the main course, we ordered Meat Dal Bhat with Chicken. Look at the size of it. The portion was huge! It was in a big round aluminum tray and there were 3 different kinds of curry on the side which is beef, spinach curry and butter chicken served with saffron rice, mango and yogurt dipping, salad and fresh naan bread. I loved the curry especially that it’s hot. The spinach was my favourite and everything else was absolutely gorgeous!
For dessert, we had the rice mango pudding. I can’t remember but I think this was a complimentary dessert if you ordered Dal Bhat. It was sweet, perfect for the spicy tongue.
Best of luck!
