Yeti – The Himalayan Kitchen is finally back to the Hauz Khas Village. Yes, they’re back with a bang to the place from where they originated. Yeti has been serving the best Himalayan food for more than five years now. The GK 2 outlet is going great guns and the same is expected from Yeti’s relaunch at Hauz Khas Village too.
It is a nicely done restaurant which transports you to the Himalayas .It is decked up with the artifacts reflecting the Himalayan feel. The ambience is also very cozy here. This 45 seater place has a smoking zone as well.
The Himalayan cuisine is one the most rustic and unexplored cuisines I have come across. So without any delay I visited the place recently. The food here just made us fall in love with this place all over again. We started our gastronomical trip to Himalayas with Aloo Sadeko, Aloo ko Achar, Wai Wai Sadeko and a variety of Momos. Aloo Sadeko and Aloo ko Achar were the best start possible. In Momos we had Mutton Momos, Chicken Momos, Aloo Momos and Veg Momos . Aloo Momos were the highlight. I never expected Aloo Momos to be this good. Mutton Momos were super juicy and fabulous. Veg Momos were also the best Veg Momos I ever had.
Choila and Sekuwa are dishes Kebab lovers should definitely try. They are a little tough to eat in comparison to traditional Mughlai Kebabs though, but that’s the way they are prepared. Sekuwa are super spicy whereas Choila has a strong garlic flavour. Pork Honey Chilly was very balanced and cooked to perfection. The menu has a few dishes made with inner organs of mutton also, will definitely try them in my next visit. I have kept their famous Buff Momos and Sukuti Fry for the next visit as well.
For the mains we had their famous Thakali Thaali. They have Veg Thakali Thaali and Non Veg Thakali Thaali. Both the Thaalis have Daal, Curd, Rai ko Saag, Piro Aloo (Fried Potatoes), Gundruk (sun-dried and fermented Radish leaves), in house made Radish Pickle, Papad and Rice in common. The only difference is Curry served with it. The non veg one has options of Chicken and Mutton Curry whereas the Veg one has Paneer and Mushroom Curry to choose from. I chose the Non Veg Thaali with Mutton . Mushroom Datchi with Tingmo is something which I would definitely recommend. Datchi is basically a white Cheese sauce and goes very well with Tingmo (Steamed Bread). This Bhutani delight is a must have. Doh Nai is a Meghalyan delicacy and it was loaded with flavours and the pork was pefectly cooked.
In the Desserts ,Yomari (Nutella Momos) are surely to lure you all. They were absolutely delightful and divine.
Overall, a beautiful place where the food speaks volume for itself. Adding to it the courteous staff here and the spik and span service lifts up the whole experience. So do give this place a try as it is highly recommended from us .
