A few minutes walk from Ebisu station, Khumbila is a Nepalese fusion restaurant that serves a delicious array of Nepalese dishes ranging from momos – thick wheat dumplings filled with meat, Nepalese curries made with lamb, seafood, chicken, tofu, cheese or vegetables, and a unique ground meat wrapped hard-boiled egg smothered in gravy, served with fried green pancakes.

Somewhat similar to Indian food with influences from China and Southeast Asia, Nepalese cuisine is unique in its own right and savory, flavorful, and often, fiery hot! In fact, I think a spicy sauteed lamb dish was the cause of heartburn that kept me up all night – totally worth it for a fantastic, full-flavored meal!
