The benefits of reaching Everest (the Nepalese Restaurant)

Everyone tells you about the amazing benefits of climbing Everest… well, I don’t buy it… BUT I am now a BIG fan of l’Everest, The Nepalese and Indian Restaurant that has recently opened in Ixelles.

Ram Khanal, manager, has been in the hospitality industry for 25years (which is easily seen by the gracious manner that he greets every patron (switching from French to English to Portuguese… all with ease (and smile)) while the chef has over 27years experience in the Oberoi Hotel in Nepal and Spain (so he clearly understand Nepal dishes!!)

With Nepal being between India and China, means that the cuisine is highly influenced by both Indian & Tibetan distinct flavours and traditions.

M, Mr Draper, HIM and I had noticed that the restaurant had recently opened just a street away from where we all live (not together I might add :))… and decided to try it out.

HIM and Mr Draper both ordered the Chicken Special House Sizzler (Sekuwas) (Traditional dish from rural Himalayan region with ginger, lemon, grass, garlic, onion, bell peppers and spices served with the chef’s secret sauce = 13.90€). And you have to love the beauty of the hand-cut onion flower petals surrounding the plates (which Mr Draper said was delicious)

M ordered the Everest Prawn (Chef’s recommendation, origin from Himalayan region with green chilli, ginger and fresh Himalayan Herbs = 15.90€)

And I decided upon the Safari Chicken (Cooked with pineapple, chunky pepper, onions, honey, lemon juice and fresh spices. Simple and delicious cuisine from Southern Nepal)

Along with this – we ordered 2 portions of plain rice (2.90€), 2 portions of Plain Naan (3€) and a Saag Paneer (spinach and cottage cheese = 6.90€)

My tummy was full… I was happy….

M and HIM both opted for dessert  Mango Kulfi (mango ice-cream 5€ that really tastes like mango!!), while Mr Draper and I decided that we only need spoons (to steal off their plates)… truly, another #YUM moment!

Would I go back? Without a doubt – this was a wonderfully close and convenient dinner venue, the prices are not expensive, the food was exceptional and the service friendly, courteous and efficient. And of course a shot of *something* that finished off our meal was the perfect ending to a perfect evening…  (I can’t recommend this place enough – in fact, HIM and I will probably be back there within the month!)

Everest thank you
