Full of authentic Nepalese flair with traditional wooden furniture and orange feature walls, Gurkhas over in Melbourne’s Brunswick offers a cosy setting to dine in, and on the menu you’ll find time-tested Nepalese dishes as well as some Indian classics. Nepalese food may be slightly overshadowed by the neighbouring cuisines of India and China, but when you taste Gurkhas’ authentic offerings you’ll understand that it deserves more recognition. No trip to Gurkhas would be complete without sampling Nepal’s most famous dish, momos – little dumplings filled with meat or vegetables served with tomato chutney.
Other must-try dishes include the dal bhat masu (a Nepalese platter of lentils, spinach, meat and your curry of choice served with rice) and the kachilla curry (a spicy meatball curry with aromatic herbs and spices). Some rato mohan (fried cottage cheese balls soaked in sugar syrup and sprinkled with coconut) or khir (a creamy Nepalese rice pudding) is the perfect way to end your trip to Gurkhas on Sydney Road in Melbourne’s Brunswick.
