Royal Nepal in Del Ray - Report

Steve | May 3, 201811:12 AM     5

Eight Chowhounds got together to enjoy a lot of momo, roast meats, and curries at this elegant eatery in Del Ray. My favorite bite of each food group was the first one listed, so maybe my preferences would change if I tried them in a different order.

We had:

Sel roti (like a Nepalese donut)
chutney

Wood roasted yak
Wood roasted boar

water buffalo momo
goat momo
yak momo

fish curry
goat curry
spicy lamb curry

naan
roti

sikarna (strained yogurt)
rasmalai

The buffalo momo were probably my favorite item. I want to go back for those. The pungent chutney was a nice foil to the sweet donut. Despite being in Virginia, prices are more like you'd expect in DC.
