Eating while riding horseback was pioneered by the efficient Mongols, who also adjusted to reading, receiving haircuts, and filling out their taxes atop their four-legged mobiles. Enjoy the convenience of chairs and tables with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Himalayan, Indian, and Japanese cuisine and drinks at Sherpa's Kitchen in Boulder.
At Sherpa's Kitchen, owner and chef Pasang Sherpa draws from his 35 years of restaurant experience to craft an eclectic, finely honed menu that combines techniques as diverse as clay-oven baking and hibachi grilling to curry kicks and yogurt marinades. Begin at the foothills of hunger with the chicken momo, a popular Nepalese dish of steamed dumplings stuffed with mixed vegetables and shredded meat cooked with traditional spices ($5). Next, scale your way up to a bowl of Tibetan thupka, a noodle soup served with naan and your choice of lamb, chicken, yak, or vegetables ($10), or opt for the island stylings of hibachi-cooked shrimp coupled with rib-eye steak ($14), the tastiest one-two punch since the fist sandwich was replaced by the pork chop.
End a mountainous meal by brewing over an aromatic brew of chai tea ($2) or enjoy a creamy mango lassi ($3) while steeping in Sherpa’s patterned fabrics and lush, traditional wall hangings. Stop in, and surround yourself in classic Himalayan cuisine, which is surrounded by a familial staff, which is surrounded by an authentic atmosphere, which is surrounded by walls.
Three Yelpers give Sherpa's Kitchen an average of 3.5 stars:
