Worth the hike uphill for an authentic Nepalese and Indian mixed meal
Come grab one of the ten tables inside this what you see is what you get restaurant halfway up the steep hill starting in Martim Moniz and leading up to Graça. The staff is almost overly welcoming at times, but the food is authentic and well-prepared. Start with the light and fluffy garlic naan bread and follow it up with the steamed chicken momo dumplings that are served with a side of beautiful yellow curry sauce. We opted to share the mutton thali set, which is the Nepalese version of a pu-pu platter. It comes with a smattering of daal, spinach, a delightfully spicy potato medley, a cooked tomato dressing, and of course, a saag-style cooked lamb in a thick and tasty sauce. Add each of these items to the pile of rice in front of you and mix and match until your taste buds have been satisfied.
