$15 for $30 Worth of Nepalese and Indian Cuisine
Diners fill up on Nepalese and Indian dishes such as momo, or steamed dumplings with roasted-tomato chutney ($10.95), crepes stuffed with lamb and potatoes ($11.95), and beef biryani with toasted nuts, seasonal veggies, and special biryani masala sauce ($13.95).
Each linen napkin is folded in such a manner that it drapes over the edge of a drinking glass like the petals of a flower. The napkin’s soft pink hue complements Himalayan Bistro’s deep red booths and the vibrant art on the walls. The aromas of ginger, chili paste, and Himalayan peppercorns drift from the kitchen, hinting at dishes traditionally served in the streets and homes of Kathmandu and other regions of Nepal. Steamed dumplings brim with veggies like the pockets of a scarecrow on payday, and tendrils of smoke unwind from kebabs in a tandoor or over an open charcoal fire. Traditional music plays in the background, the unfamiliar scales and nearby antique statuettes completing the sensation of having traveled halfway around the world.
