Nepalese cuisine reaches new heights

January 28, 2015

Let's get the name of the restaurant out of the way first. I thought the unusual name might have been a clue to its address, but surely Union Street does not stretch that far. Then I wondered if it was the longitude and latitude for Nepal, which has a strong influence over many dishes on the menu. Wrong again. We discovered it is actually the height in metres of the world's biggest mountain, Mount Everest, which straddles the border between Nepal and China.
