Tucked away down an alley that runs parallel to Franklin and Bouganville Streets, Taste of Himalaya is a breath of fresh air in the gastronomic district of Manuka. With its simple white brick walls, tall dark wooden chairs, and white-linen set tables, the restaurant provides a relaxed dining experience and an agreeable ambience.
FOOD AND BEVERAGE
Taste of Himalaya specialises in Nepalese and a fusion of international cuisines prepared by head chef Surya Maharjan. Dishes will entice and please even the most discerning diner with a fine selection of authentic Nepalese staples. Dine on the likes of momo for entrée – traditional dumplings in both chicken and vegetable varieties, served with sesame and homemade tomato chutney. For main course opt for newari khozza – a combination of char-grilled beef and pork lentil patties, black eye pea and spicy mixed vegetable salad or the flavoursome khasi ko masu – goat curry with green bean masala and spicy tomato chutney. The menu includes influences from a large variety of cooking styles and cuisines, aptly reflecting the diversity and myriad of flavours found in the Himalayas. The dessert menu includes traditional options such as chocolate mud cake alongside more exotic dishes such as carrot haluwa – a traditional Himalayan carrot pudding with mixed nuts, fresh kiwi and whipped cream.
