Looking for Nepalese Restaurant
Looking for a Nepalese restaurant in the Boston area, including Cambridge and Western suburbs. Also looking for Nepalese loose leaf green tea called Ni Ti. It's very fresh and tasty. I'm about to run out and absolutely need more. Thanks
Kathmandu Spice, on Mass Ave in Arlington, and Himalayan Bistro in West Roxbury. Chowhound reports seem to indicate that both are tasty, though most have tried dishes from the (mainly) North Indian menu.
I'm looking forward to trying these and seeing how they do a rendition of alu tama and other favorites. For some odd reason, I have trouble stomaching the idea of paying nearly $18 for a daal bhaat tarkari platter. (Forget which one of the two abovementioned charged that).

I had dinner there about 6 months ago and enjoyed it very much. The momos were great, as was a brocolli pancake sort of appetizer, and I recall a gingered stir-fried kind of beef that was very tasty. Portions were really huge. I don't know how much overlap there is in Tibetan and Nepalese food, though. Rangzen is definitely Tibetan run, and I think it's fairly authentic. I keep meaning to go back for another visit, especially now that its getting chilly.
