The Pacific Ocean separates Pasadena from Nepal, but Himalayan Cafe makes the distance seem smaller. Its authentic combination of Nepalese, Indian, and Tibetan dishes include sautéed veggies served along homemade paneer cheese, lamb, chicken, and shrimp baked in a tandoor oven, and six varieties of naan, a flatbread served plain or stuffed with fixings. Sweet treats include Nepalese-style rice pudding topped with cardamom and nuts and lassi, a yogurt drink made with rosewater. Beer and wine is also served.
