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. Fluffy Indian-style onion nan makes for a good starter and works well with the duo of vegetable curries served with basmati rice, dal soup, homemade pickles, vegetables and rice pudding. Other representations of Himalayan cuisine include chicken, beef, vegetables and cashew nuts in an almond sauce. Finely chopped roasted eggplants cooked in garlic with a ginger sauce is another good introduction to Himalayan culinary offerings. End the meal with 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.
