Located on Goodwood Road opposite Victoria Street, Yeti Nepalese offers a formidable menu of Himalayan cuisine as legendary as the snowman from whence it takes its name. This no-fuss Nepalese restaurant is one of Adelaide’s favourites in this part of the city for its ability to quickly whip up the hearty, traditional dishes typical of this lesser-known South Asian cuisine. Nepalese food is a rising star in the foodie scene – book now and don’t forget to sample the popular Chinese-Nepalese momo dumplings.
Yeti Nepalese offers a wide selection of Nepalese dishes, with many of them being naturally gluten-free. Goodwood locals know Yeti well, but the restaurant is making a name for itself throughout Adelaide as a capable representative of Himalayan cuisine, with most of the dishes offering properly hearty, mountain fare packed with exotic spices and unusual flavours. If you consider yourself a fan of Indian or Pakistani cuisine, Yeti Nepalese is the next logical step to South Asian culinary nirvana.
As we mentioned before, no meal at Yeti Nepalese is complete without a round of momo. These dumplings are staples of Nepalese cuisine and draw the dots between Chinese and South Asian culinary traditions. Up here in the Himalayas, momo are steamed dumplings served as khaja (starters) and stuffed with chicken or vegetables, ginger, garlic, coriander and spring onion, served up with a traditional achar pickle. Besides these, popular dishes at Yeti Nepalese’s Goodwood Road restaurant, to the south of Adelaide’s city centre, include a wealth of gluten-free meat and chicken dishes like the khasi ko masu (goat curry) and ladbade ko sekewa (a Nepalese-style butter chicken). Believe it or not, seafood is common here – bhute ko jhingey is a serve of stir-fried prawns – as well as vegetarian options. The misayako tarkari is sure to be a hit among meat-free eaters.
