Village Voice's Description

The Yak underwent a sea change a couple of months ago, altering its name from Tibetan Yak to Himalayan Yak. It betokens the addition of Nepalese and Indian fare to the already bulging menu. The old Tibetan specialties like la phing (a wobbly cube of mung bean jelly) and shamdey (a lamb curry) remain as good as ever, while some new Tibetan stuff (the beef sausage called gyuma) has been added. Nepalese imports shine too, including achar (a daikon pickle in a gritty red sauce) and sadeko gundruk (dried and pickled veggies).

    The wobbly white jelly called la phing is a mystical thing at Himalayan Yak, a Tibetan stalwart that added Nepalese and Indian menus, then closed for renovation. It should reopen any day now.

    For authentic Nepali food stop by the Himalayan Yak. Chef Micahel Ginor says, “The Nepali snack platter is an appetizer plate with various signature snacks. It’s a good way to sample.”
