I haven’t been to Nepal, but I really like the Himalayan Cuisine Restaurant serving foods of Nepal, India and Tibet. The staff are from Nepal and explain the differences between the menu items which aren’t too spicy but more about flavors. Located in La Mesa, the interior is restful and designed to represent their culture. Lunch is so good for $7.95 with plenty of leftovers to take home. Chicken, eggplant, potatoes, curry and tandoori specialties with warm naan bread. In a hurried society, this restaurant exudes serenity and peace.
