The Everest Kitchen, Marrickville

A little while ago last year, a friend organised a small catch up over a Nepalese dinner. It was the two things I couldn’t say no to; it was regrettably a long time since I had seen them and from my last Nepalese  dinner, I knew it was going to be tasty. To sweeten the deal, the dinner was a two-for-one voucher with a set menu.

Mixed Entree Platter

The mixed entree platter consisted of chicken dumplings, lamb, soy salad, flattened rice, potato salad, chicken and garden salad. We were surprised just how generous the servings were and wondered if we would have any room left at all for the mains and dessert.

We’ve never had flattened rice before and while it was a little strange for me, its crunchiness was a nice contrast to the rest of the platter – making me come back for more. Although the meat were succulent and wonderfully flavoursome, it was the soy salad that was a surprising hit at the table. We’re not sure what exactly made it so delicious – what we did know was that the soy in the salad was wonderfully crunchy and it packed a punch of flavour.

We had barely managed to finish the platter when the mains arrived. The chicken curry was nice, but I found that I much prefer the salt and pepper fish with (a slightly spicy) spinach.

Pappadums and Basmati Rice

The basmati rice was fluffy and was a very nice accompaniment to the curry. Though for me, it was the crispy pappadums with the salt and pepper fish that was the winning combination. (Sadly the chutney that came with the pappadums were a tad too spicy for me to handle).

Laal Mohan

Topping off our very filling dinner was a dessert I think is called Laal Mohan (please correct me if I’m wrong) Gulab Jamun (thanks Panu for the correction) – a very sweet dessert. I’ve had this before, though not as nice; sadly most of us were just too full to finish it.

The Everest Kitchen nestles just off the bustling main road in Marrickville. It’s only been opened for less than a year, but The Everest Kitchen seems to be doing quite well with a steady stream of customers coming in while we dined. While my friends and I quite liked the food overall, we thought it was the entree platter that really shone.

    Agree with the others, the entree platter looks great. I probably would skip the mains and just have the platter :P

  2. I’ve never had Nepalese food before. The food servings look extremely generous. That is the largest entree platter for two I’ve ever seen. That soy salad sounds very intriguing.

  3. The dessert is actually a Gulab Jamun or a Lady Kenny or a Pantua, a traditional Bengali dessert. Also, the flattened rice is better known as “Chirey” which we generally either dry roast or fry in a bit of oil and then put a pinch of salt, pepper and roasted peanuts in and eat.

    Greetings from Kolkata, and you have a lovely blog here if I may say so.

  4. You’ve just reminded me that i have one of those nifty little vouchers tucked away for this place. Note to self: use it!!! Great photos.
