Chomolungma Nepalese Restaurant, Manuka – trying some more dishes

Standard

Chomolungma Nepalese restaurant opened in March and is well worth checking out.

Tucked away down the lane near the lawns in Manuka, it’s just across the road from the easy parking after hours in the Medical Centre car park on Furneaux Street, making it a great spot to head in cold or wet weather.

It’s cosy and friendly and the decor is welcoming. Service is attentive and very efficient.

Start with a drink and some complimentary pappadoms while you ponder the menu.

A plate of momos as a starter is essential as these are excellent and accompanied by a tasty broth and delicious tomato and sesame chutney.

The steamed pork momos are possibly the top pick ($12 for 10).

If you are with a group, consider sharing one of the other entrees too. The Kima Bara – marinated mince with sunshine egg, Sichuan pepper and tomato chutney $8, is also tasty (and a good option for those needing a gluten free alternative to momos as these have a similar flavour in the marinated mince).

For main course choose one of the thali styled meals for $15 -$20 (depending on what type of meat you choose).

Flavoursome curries are accompanied by rice, a tasty dahl,  a smokey spinach  side and very pleasant crisp vegetable side as well as a spicy mango pickle.

The Garlic chilli prawns $20 (8 prawns) are very hard to beat.

There is also a pan fried vegetable option $15, that is likely to be very good too.

Order some roti to perfectly complete the meal (about 1/2 per person).

All options except the momos and roti are gluten free (just double check the noodles in the the soup and chow mien).

The dishes can also be nut free.

There are also a chow mein (pork/chicken/vegetables) $13 stir fried noodles with garlic, ginger vegetables and herbs and a Thupa (noodle soup with pork/chicken/vegetables and herbs and vegetables) $13 options that can be prepared for those who prefer a low level of spiciness.
