Often, guests observe Nepali food is similar to Indian food. It is important to distinguish the flavors between these two cuisines. Indian cuisine is usually spicier and contains a thicker sauce. The food usually tastes hot and contains many spices, whereas, Nepali cuisine is less spicy, contains a thinner sauce, and uses fewer spices that are bold in flavor. Nepali cuisine is milder and is preferably eaten with rice due to its fluid texture.
At Himalayan Kitchen, we use spices that are also used in Indian cuisines, however the cooking styles differ significantly. Also, our food contains no MSG, is low in oil, 95% gluten free, and we have the largest vegetarian menu in Durango.
