Annapurna Cafe Restaurant Review: Annapurna Café’s colorful interior surrounds guests with bright orange walls and Tibetan prayer flags. The friendly owner and her staff are warm and welcoming, ready to serve standard Indian fare featuring many vegetarian options, plus lesser known and hard-to-find Tibetan and Nepalese dishes. 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 a choice of meats simmered in a sauce redolent with Szechuan peppers, tomatoes and Tibetan herbs. There's also a savory gyatak noodle soup that combines egg noodles with lamb, garlic and tomatoes in a broth topped with a fried egg. Feeling especially hungry? Order one of the set meals that includes an assortment of curries, pakoras and tandoori meats served with rice, naan and chutneys. A reasonable selection wine and beer is offered.
