Himalaya Restaurant Houston report

A very interesting place. The owner is a character! Their samosas could be addictive. Their goat and mutton (it's not entirely clear if the terms are used interchangeably in spite of the traditional differences in animal origin) curries are superb. They love ghee and grease, and so do I. Their food smacks of hand-made-from-scratch all down the line.

The sort of place that says "This is Us" without shame or adaptation to popularity. I liked it. I also liked the Indian shop across the way where Brit's can get supplies they crave like Heinz Tomato Soup and Heinz Baked Beans, Marmite, Cadbury's Flake, Turkish Delight, Branston Pickle and HP Sauce. And lots more.

But Himalaya is a place not in danger of becoming a standard blah Indo-Pakistani place. It sets its own agenda and I suspect will do always.
