Everest Sherpa Restaurant

 

continued

bleak vision outside curtained off, a cup of sweet, milky chai warming your hands, and a background hum of Tibetan-style chanting soothing jangled nerves, you would swear you had been transported far, far away.

Expecting a modest storefront restaurant, my husband and I were delighted by how stylish and attractive Everest is. The space is discretely segmented with open dividers and half walls into brightly painted rooms, with Buddhist and Hindu art and arresting photos of the Himalayas on the walls. The Nepali owners, Pem Sherpa and his wife Moni Mulepati, who also own the Himalayan Bazaar on Main St., took the photos on their own treks up and down those mountains. Beginning as the Everest Momo food cart at Mark's Carts, the couple and their family are now tackling a new adventure: a full-fledged restaurant that's replaced Lotus Thai in the mall.

Everest Sherpa's menu reflects the shared elements of Nepali, Tibetan, Bhutanese, and Indian cuisines. Of course momos, steamed (or optionally fried) dumplings, top the list of appetizers. Everest's are rather small and come filled with gingery ground chicken or mixed vegetables. They're served with Nepali achar, a dipping sauce of pureed sesame seeds and roasted tomatoes. We found the chicken version much more flavorful. Depending on what you order, however, an appetizer might not be necessary; entrees tend to be generous.
