Annapurna Cafe Restaurant Review

: There is no climbing required to enjoy the dishes at this namesake of a Himalayan mountain. Instead, you’ll descend a flight of stairs to reach this gem. Once ensconced in the colorful space, you’re surrounded by bright orange walls and Tibetan prayer flags. The friendly owner and her staff are warm and welcoming, ready to serve standard Indian fare featuring good vegetarian options, along with lesser known Tibetan and Nepalese dishes hard to find elsewhere. Start with momos, Nepal's version of pot stickers, served with three dipping sauces. The squat, round bundles with a pinched swirl on top are stuffed with chicken or spinach. Or try the aloo dum, spicy potatoes cooked Nepalese style with fresh tomatoes, garlic, cilantro and herbs. Follow with a Himalayan curry with your choice of meats, simmered in a sauce redolent with Szechuan peppers, tomatoes and Tibetan herbs; savory gyatak noodle soup combines egg noodles with lamb, garlic and tomatoes in a broth topped with a fried egg. Feeling extra hungry? Order one of the set meals that include an assortment of curries, pakoras and tandoori meats served with rice, naan and chutneys.
