Delicious Nepalese food! Apr 12, 2012
After finishing our work at the plant in Baton Rouge and refreshing ourselves, we took the suggestion of our Nepalese student to go to a Nepalese restaurant. I have never tried Nepal food, so I immediatly said yes.
I tried Tama (bamboo) soup and lamb Chwela as my main entree. I have to say that i was very surprised of how similar Nepalese food was to Mexican. Maybe because of the use of the cilantro and tomato, it really had a Mexican flavor to it. Of course I also had some rice with curry and the tortilla bread was fantastic! Tasted like the home made tortillas my mom used to make 20 years ago.
I was really satisfied with this restaurant and I will def try Nepalese food again when I have the chance, I loved it! The only thing I didn't like much was the anise seeds we had for dessert... I remember one time my dad gave me an anise caramel for a joke when I was little. The taste was so bitter that I cannot have anise again anymore! Hahaha! This time I thought it would stay in mouth longer, but fortunately it went away pretty quick :)
