Himalaya… Indian and Pakistani Cuisine


I always thought that Indians and Pakistanis didn’t get along very well. Well that’s NOT the case at Himalaya… a small restaurant in a mostly Indian-American strip center at Hillcroft and SW Freeway. While I’ve eaten here before, it was a surprise for Sally. 

The restaurant is small and casual and you must be 
impressed by the awards and rave reviews on the wall!
The restaurant is small and casual and there is plenty of attention from the owner, Kaiser Lashkari. This trip, we decided to eat rather lite and asked Kaiser to order for us. Hard to do, as food from this region is not easily “diet-ized.”

Garlic Naan.


Our lunch consisted of regular Naan and Garlic Naan. The Garlic Naan was spectacular and we decided that it could be a destination dish. All crispy and you could taste the garlic before it reached your mouth!

Naan



Aloo Chana Masala

The Aloo Chana Masala (chick peas and potatoes) was delicious and was not one of the dishes that made it to the doggie bag. It was an a vegan Punjab Indian dish simmered in a piquant curry sauce.

Chicken Achaari 
Chicken Achaari was cubed chicken simmered in a tangy smoky curry sauce. Delicious.


Goat Masala 

The Goat Masala was bone-in goat cooked in a tomato and onion sauce. It also had a rich garlic curry sauce. The meat was tender as can be and the bone-in treatment is testament to the fact that nothing is wasted in that part of the world.

Indian Rice

The Indian rice was cooked perfectly and not the slightest bit of stickiness such as in Japanese or American rices. Himalaya is certainly our go-to restaurant for Indian/Pakistani food… and just may become a hang-out for me! Himalaya is a must-go experience!
