Nepalese cuisine is on the up and up in Sydney, focusing specifically on the hearty Himalayan fare from the oft-ignored highland nation rather than adding a few dishes typical of the region to a menu of standard Indian items. The Nepalese Kitchen is one such restaurant, in the heart of Surry Hills along Crown Street. A good place both for a lazy evening meal or an express lunch, The Nepalese Kitchen’s popular dishes are numerous.
Nepalese cuisine is designed for hardy mountain folk. Okay, so Sydney’s temperate-to-subtropical climes might seem incompatible, but nothing beats Nepalese cuisine for its robust flavours – and that’s what foodies cruising Surry Hills’ Crown Street are looking for, right? Here at The Nepalese Kitchen you can sample a range of Himalayan dishes, from khaajaa (entrees) to khaana (mains) with accompaniments, salads and more besides. Open from 6pm until late, but inexplicably closed Friday and Saturday, The Nepalese Kitchen is sought after for its exotic and affordable offering.
Begin your lofty feast at The Nepalese Kitchen with the Chinese-Indian-Nepalese crossover delicacy of momo, the delicious dumplings that we reckon will be the new dim sum in the coming years. Or, go further afield at The Nepalese Kitchen’s Surry Hills restaurant and try the keema ko bara, a crisp fritter of ground black lentils stuffed with spicy chicken, lamb, or egg. As with this delicious entree, there’s plenty of Nepalese food that’s good for vegetarians, despite the cuisine’s reputation – fair enough – for being replete with goat and lamb, tough mountain fodder.
