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. Momos, Tibetan-style dumplings stuffed with beef or a variety of other meats, are almost compulsory for those who want to sample a regional home-style favorite. Himalayan curry with chicken, beef and vegetables in a masala sauce, while reminiscent of the more prevalent Indian variety, also reflects the ingredients and spices of this area, while the chicken garlic soup with potatoes and Himalayan herbs features classic Tibetan and Nepalese flavors. The menu also includes Indian staples. 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.
