Last night we ate at Himalayan Fusion, a crowded restaurant that features Indian, Tibetan, and Nepalese food. It was located in the middle of the quaintest downtown area, similar to Ithaca or Burlington, with a cobblestone road joining rows of boutiques, ice cream parlors, and restaurants. We ordered the Baigun Bharta (Baked Eggplant, cooked with Ginger and Garlic), Papri Chat (medley of Wafers gently tossed in spices), Vegetable Momos (Tibetan Style Dumplings), and Chai. Though the food was good, the service was so slow that it really colored our experience here. The Momos were good, and I would recommend them to anyone who hasn’t tried them before (I prefer them over Chinese dumplings), but couldn’t be compared to the Fried Momo Box in Dharmsala. The chai was excellent (with three packets of sugar, it tasted like Indian Chai). The food took about an hour to arrive and the waiter was the antithesis of the experience as La Carbonara.
