We started out with vegetarian dumplings of the deep-fried variety. They are called Kothe, which is a deep-fried dumpling stuffed with a mixture of vegetables (or chicken or yak!), onions, cilantro, and delightful spices. It was served with this amazing sauce on the side that perfectly complemented these little deep-fried pieces of heaven. I did not intend on eating my entire half of the serving, but I just couldn't stop and after about 5 minutes, the plate was totally empty! These dumplings are just too good.
I ordered my favorite main dish as well -- palak paneer. Sometimes I feel bad not mixing it up at my favorite restaurants and trying some new things, but if you have the option of eating something this tasty, why would you NOT order it?! I love the palak paneer. A creamy mix of spinach, spices, blocks of paneer (which is a cheese), with some tomato and cilantro as a garnish. Mmmmm, LOVE it. I spoon a generous serving of palak paneer over a bed of rice and chow down! The best part is that the portions are so big, you can take half of it home and eat it for lunch the next day (or dinner that night...).
Of course, it wouldn't be a full Everest meal without their garlic naan. A warm, chewy piece of naan bread, sprinkled with bits of garlic AND cilantro. Tear it into pieces and either use it as another way to eat the delicious palak paneer or just sample it plain. Either way, it's super good.
This place rocks. The food is top notch and the menu is stacked with awesome-sounding meals. And during the summer, they have outdoor tables so you can enjoy the eats with some Grand Avenue people watching. I don't know if I'm ever going to venture away from this A+ meal, but I invite you to go and try out something new! Maybe your comments will inspire me to deviate!
