Village Voice's Description

Mustang Thakali Kitchen specializes in food from the Mustang region of Nepal, an ancient city-state on the northern border with Tibet in a lovely valley ringed by mountains. While the food reflects the influence of Chinese, Indian, and Tibetan cuisines, regional specialties abound. Examples are: the poodle-shaped loaf of beaten buckwheat starch called dhido, the scented mutton jerky known as sukuti sadeko, and bhatmas chiura, a dry salad of toasted soybeans. Most entrees come on a thali which subtends a small serving of curry, various pickles and sauces, and a vegetable dish or two, centered by a starch such as polished rice or ting momo -- a knurled white steamed bun. The dining room is especially commodious.

    The steamed veggie momos at Mustang Thakali are truly amazing, tender to the point of being almost creamy. The sauces put them over the top. Staff are super friendly.
