Luckily, you live in a city where it’s pretty easy to find.
But good Nepalese food...
Oh, wait. You can get that pretty easily now, too. So let’s do that.
Introducing Nepal House, an unpretentious little South Loop corner spot able to satisfy your famous momo and kukhura ko pekheta cravings, now open.
This is the third spot from the folks behind Chicago Curry House in the Loop and Curry Hut in Highwood. Here, you’ll find some of the favorites from those places—the chicken momo (steamed dumplings, which are the national dish of Nepal) and 15 kinds of bread. But there are 20 dishes only available at this location, dishes like Nepali kukhura (bone-in chicken with fragrant spices), which you usually have to travel to Kathmandu for. So that’s pretty convenient.
You may just wind up doing takeout and delivery here on weeknights—they also have plenty of Indian culinary classics, by the way. But take a look around. It’s sort of sweet and homey. White tablecloths. Village scene paintings adorn the walls. There’s a big booth in the back. Yes, we think we just found your new place to take Mom and Dad when they want to experience the kind of food you can only get in Chicago.
Mom worries you’re not getting enough momo.
