Jewel of Himalaya Restaurant Review

: Lesser known than the cooking of its East and South Asian neighbors, the cuisines of Nepal and Tibet take center stage at Jewel of Himalaya. First-timers should try the beef momo, a thick-skin dumpling stuffed with spiced beef served in an aromatic beef broth, or thukpa soup, a hearty beef soup with hand-tossed noodles. Sweet deep-fried Tibetan bread is an interesting alternative to naan, while the dal makhini, lentils and beans cooked in Himalayan herbs, is one of many hearty vegetarian options. The menu also includes Indian staples and is loaded with several variations on the theme of curry. Leave room for the Himalayan-style apple pie, the slightly tart, fried pineapple or the sweet fried banana. Himalayan coffee, black tea, and unsweetened and sweetened Himalayan mix chai are among the regional drinks.
