Yak and Yeti -- Somerville Nepali grubz

yumyum | Sep 12, 2011 10:08 AM

I had some very good delivery from Yak and Yeti last night. Not a lot of chatter here on the board about this place so I thought I should add to the knowledge base.

Bhedako tarkari (lamb stew)**
Aloo tikki (potato croquettes)
Aoo tamma ko jhol (potato and bamboo shoots)
Pork kothe (fried pork momos)

** Lamb, potatoes with bamboo shoots, dal and rice were part of a set meal. The others were add ons.

The food was very very good, surprisingly mildly spiced, with a very soupy texture in most dishes. I don't know much about Nepali food (paging Prav) but I gather this soupy loose curry / stew is the way it's done?

There was a also a green sauce to have with the momo's (excellent) and a chili paste plus a mango chutney of sorts. The paratha was great, oily in a good way, charred in spots. My favorite might have been Aloo tikki ... who doesn't like a hot fresh potato croquette?

I think there is more to explore here. Has anyone else been? What have been your faves?
