Tara's Himalayan

Asia’s lesser-known dumpling, momo,are to Nepal what the gyoza is to Japan.Tara’s Himalayan offers pinched and folded momos from pan-fried to chicken-filled. We like the steamed variety ($5.99 for eight), which comes an all-vegetables or chicken filling that’s delightfully moist. The highlight is the tomato achaar dipping sauce, a Nepalese staple of ripe tomatoes, red chilies, mustard seeds and fresh ginger.

A total must-try. You don't see a whole lot of Tibetan/Nepalese/Himalayan food in LA or OC although we should because it's so good. 


It's a mix between Indian food (curries, naan bread) and Asian (stir-fry, fried rice, etc) 


If nothing else, eat the momos (dumplings) and the YAK CHILI (it's not everyday you see Yak on the menu at any given restaurant). The yak chili is like a beef stir fry but the meat tastes better. 


This restaurant isn't in the best neighborhood and the parking is actually hard to find on the side roads since they are all residential. Expect to drive around the block a few times but it's worth it.
