Himalayan fare derives its recipes from the mountainous landscape, making use of local plants, animals, and secret ingredients blabbed by talkative yaks. Make meals out of mountains with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of Nepalese and Tibetan fare at Tara's Himalayan Cuisine in Woodland Hills.
Tara's Himalayan Cuisine populates its menu with authentic Nepalese and Tibetan dishes chock-full of mountain-plucked herbs and spices as well as locally sourced produce. Traditionally a Nepalese comfort food, aloo achar gathers boiled potatoes, green onions, cilantro, and fenugreek ($3.99) in a tender embrace. Helpings of yak chili-sliced sautéed yak seasoned with garlic and ginger and textured by zesty peppers ($10.99) sets diners on a singular culinary expedition preferable to swimming a molasses-filled English Channel. Diners satisfy fibrous cravings with tender bamboo shoots, potatoes, and black-eyed peas in the aloo bodi tama ($6.99) and guide palates through the boldly seasoned eggplant curry ($6.99). Packed with lush potables, the drink list logs a variety of spiced teas and smoothies to wet whistles in time for officiating after-dinner arm wrestling.
Embedded in deep, earthy tones, the interior of Tara's Himalayan Cuisine evokes owner Tara Gurung Black's Himalayan heritage. Tara is dedicated to sharing her success with the people of Nepal, donating 10% of the restaurant's profits toward Nepalese education.
