The Himalayan cafe – a hidden gem

Its not that just restaurants have good food, like there are places which aren’t actually restaurants but their food is like much better than most of them serving a similar cuisine.

The Himalayan cafe is one such place. Its a small place with just 4 chairs and two tables. The kitchen is much bigger when compared. It doesn’t have a good ambience but their food just compensates for all the negatives ( nothing apart from the ambience for most us us).


The man behind had a dream to set up a place serving his local cuisine. You just can’t get enough of his enthusiasm to showcase and serve great food of great quality. He is proud to say he has minimal margin because of the expensive quality of ingredients they use. A goal and a vision is what drives him forward and we will definitely see a lot of development and love towards his food.

We tried a few dishes , lets check them out. #hyderabadfoodexplorer

The first to come was their Chicken spicy coriander steamed momos and Spicy veg fried momos. One bite and I knew it wasn’t any normal. The juices it released was something that adds immense flavour to the momos. You don’t want to waste the juices. The spice as well was balanced without hitting on the back of the throat which was a good sign.


Next to come in was the chicken kothey and steamed pork momos. The chicken ones again had those juices coming through , also has a kick from the lemon juice. Perfect with the spicy chutney. Although I don’t eat pork , also I have no problem in trying it out the owner insisted me to try it. It was much better than the chicken one in terms of flavour and he proudly says its the best the kitchen does.


We also tried the Thukpa both chicken and pork. Both of them had a different broth , again pork one being much more flavourful. It had noodles , meat , egg , shredded vegetables and meat. A bit spicier than the authentic one to suit the local palate. But can be customized according to one’s choice.


Chicken Bami Goreng was their newest addition, this was much better than what a few pan Asian restaurants serve. It had a slight sweetness to it and that’s how it had to be. The chicken as well was really good with the noodles.


The price point is really good for the quality and the taste. Shall be back to try their Thai food and also the Khow suey which will be added soon.
