Himalayan restaurant in New Haven?

Pipenta Nov 1, 2010 02:25 PM

A friend just called me up and asked if I wanted to go to the new Himalayan restaurant in New Haven. My response was sure and what? There's a Himalayan restaurant in New Haven? He says they do Tibetan food too.

Anyone know anything about this?

    I know nothing, but read with great interest. I miss Little Tibet (in Middletown) bigtime...yes, there is still a Little Tibet, but now only a furniture store and not a restaurant. Let us know what you find out--last I queried, LT was the only game in the whole Land of Steady Habits. Will there be momos? Mmmmmmm.

      Those are dumplings, right? I pretty much love all dumplings. If my friend has not hallucinated this place, and if there are momos, I will order them and eat them and report back.

        Yes, with a delicious, spicy sauce! Let's hope it's not an illusion. ;) Thank you!

        Is this it--the eponymous Himalayan Restaurant on Temple St.? :)
        I haven't been. I was waiting to figure out what we were talking about first. HA HA!

          Hot damn--those momos are right on their home page. Mmmmmm. I wanna go!!! What'djahave, Niki?

          OTOH, it's kinda too bad some of the rest of the menu doesn't have some of the items I was used to ordering at Little Tibet--seems more Indian than Tibetan...still, I'd get there for good momos alone. ;)

            I'm sitting at Bradley, as I type this, waiting to hop a plane. I'll be in the Chicago area until after Thanksgiving, so I can't run out and try this place for a few weeks. But by now, I'm pretty pumped for it. Oh yum.

            I'll have to console myself with something, something, when I am in Chicago. I imagine I'll be able to find a little tidbit or two to sustain myself, don't you think? Heading over to the Chi Town boards now.

            But as soon as I get back, going to make a beeline for momos!

              See you there, maybe! ;) Safe travels to you meanwhile--and good eats in the Windy City! Hopefully, we'll have more details (including mine!) by the time you return.
