Like me, my guess is that you're probably not too familiar with Himalayan food. But since I'm always curious about the cuisines of other cultures, I strolled last week into the Himalayan Kitchen on 400 South downtown. Well since Nepal shares a border with the northeast corner of India, it's not surprising that the food of Nepal and the Himalayas is quite similar to that of India. In fact, Salt Lake's Himalayan Kitchen serves both Indian and Nepali cuisine.

So at the Himalayan Kitchen you'll find traditional Indian menu items like chicken tikka masala, lamb kurma, and biriyani rice dishes. But Himalayan specialties pepper the menu too. There are momos on the menu at the Himalayan Kitchen: those are traditional Nepali steamed dumplings with chicken, onions, ginger, and spices. There's also a delicious Tibetan vegetable noodle soup and chow chow, which is a popular stir-fried noodle dish from Nepal.

If you're new to the food of Nepal or India, maybe the best way to take the plunge is at the Himalayan Kitchen's daily lunch buffet where for one low price you can sample a range of tasty Indian and Nepali flavors. Why there's even a very friendly server who hails from Kathmandu, and with his guidance you'll be an Indian and Nepali food expert in no time!

So for good food from Calcutta to Kathmandu, the Himalayan Kitchen is the place to trek.
