Nepalese Food in Glen Ellen
Sunday night, my husband and I found ourselves in Glen Ellen at Yeti Restaurant. A Nepalese Restaurant in the charming Jack London Village section near the Creek. It was a lovely evening, the doors open and the staff delightfully warm and friendly. The food was plentiful and delicious....very similar to Indian food, although somewhat less spicy. Our starter was a chicken dumpling served with a delicious mint and cilantro sauce. For our main dish we ordered Prawn Tandoori (pictured) and a curry eggplant dish (Benghan Barta) that looked like mush, but was so delicious and slightly sweet with tones of turmeric. From my seat, I could watch them taking the raw balls of dough for the naan and frying it....it was so fresh. The mango chutney tasted homemade, the yogurt raita was light and a perfect compliment to the meal. We had enough leftover for our lunch the next day!
The prices...pricey! Not a place that we can eat at regularly, but definitely a treat spot! Hope you can enjoy sometime! http://www.yetirestaurant.com/
