A Day At Yeti - The Himalayan Kitchen

In this blog post, I cover the newly opened CP outlet of Yeti - The Himalayan Kitchen.


A visit to Yeti was long overdue. The popular restaurant which started its journey at Hauz Khas Village a couple of years ago has now opened up a brand new outlet at The Colonnade, CP.

IMHO there couldn't have been a better location than Connaught Place (CP) to launch this new outlet ... considering its central location, old-world charm and legacy.

What I love about this quaint lil outlet is that it is managed by the same team that gave us the iconic Raasta. Making its way to the heart of Delhiites, Yeti provides an unparalleled experience by introducing the best authentic fare from the Himalayan regions of Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet. Expect to see all that you love here but with a more underground feel.

The earthy, well-lit decor is inspired by the Namche Bazaar of Nepal, which for the uninitiated is the starting point for all expeditions to the Everest and other Himalayan peaks surrounding the area. Over the years, the bazaar has developed into a small, colorful market town, selling everything from Tibetan artifacts to trekking and climbing equipment; basically, anything you might need during your trip.

True to its theme, Yeti is the kind of place you'd go to start your Himalayan gastronomical journey. I was amazed by how calm it managed to be despite being chockablock, even on a weekday, the busy lanes of Connaught Place notwithstanding.

Exposed brick walls, Mandalas, Tibetan prayer wheels, and flags are the high point of Yeti's decor; you'll also end up admiring the warm wooden furniture complementing the space.

The dining area is off to one nook to create a warm cozy ambiance. The rest of the space offers a sense of being in an edgy, contemporary Himalayan cafe.

The perfect place to unwind with friends and family, Yeti delights with its immaculate choice of favorite Himalayan dishes such as the Sha Datchi, Tingmo, Choila, Gyuma, Thukpa, Yomari, among other Tibetan, Nepali, and Bhutanese dishes.

Here are my recommendations at what you should not miss at Yeti.

Chicken Momo
Stating the obvious, isn't it! Everyone's favorite native Himalayan dumplings can be enjoyed here in various variants such as chicken (my favorite), mutton, buff, and so on. Non-vegetarians can also try the Yeti Special "Kothe" styled momo. If you're a vegetarian, I'd suggest you go for the Jhol momo.

Chicken Momo

The momos are served with three dips - peanut chili (most spicy), schezwan chili (medium spicy), and white sesame (least spicy).

Sha Datchi

Simply loved this Bhutanese meat and cheese curry dish, available in chicken, pork, or buff.

Try eating Sha Datchi with this soft and tender Tibetan steamed bun.

Nepalese Platter

This unique platter comprise Sekuwa (one of the most popular street foods in Nepal made of lamb), Sukuti Sadeko (traditional dried buff meat dish), Phokso (goat lights stir-fried with onions, tomatoes, and Nepal spices), and Bhatmas ra Chiura (roasted soybean mixed with spices, onions, green chili, and drops of lemon juice).

If there's room for more, go for the Fried Pork.

Yomari

Yomari, a delicacy of the Newar community in Nepal, is a steamed dumpling made of an external covering of rice flour, stuffed with a sweet dish like chaku. At Yeti, the inner stuffing is done with Nutella.

With an attempt to bring the authentic Himalayan cuisine back to Delhi's most happening haunt while staying true to the brand's roots, the management has decided to stick to the classics from Yeti's original menu with some additions.

If you're someone like me who's slightly experimental with his food and open to the idea of trying new authentic cuisines from the different Himalayan regions, plan a visit to Yeti without further ado. You can thank me later!
