Everest Sherpa Restaurant
At lunch, for instance, my husband ordered the standing midday special, dal bhat, a traditional Nepali rice platter much like a south Indian thali meal. A mound of rice comes surrounded by small bowls of lentil soup, vegetable sides, a choice of vegetarian or meat curry, and dessert, along with delicious soft, blistered naan bread. Though he kept swearing he'd have to take some home, my husband, amid groans of surrender, repeatedly returned to the bowls and the mound, finally leaving us only a triangle or two of naan to wrap up. We did take home half my Lhasa chow mein, a Tibetan-style stir-fry of wheat noodles coated with a light curry sauce and dotted with shredded vegetables and, optionally, substantial pieces of chicken. Rather bland at lunch, the leftovers developed greater flavor and zest when reheated the next day.
A Himalayan curry with shrimp and an Indian paneer tikka masala, both accompanied by cumin seed-scented rice, were our lunch choices a few weeks later. With a simple base of tomato and onion, the curry sauce was less rich than the creamy, buttery tikka masala enveloping the cubes of yogurt cheese, but we had no complaints about either.
