my friend had her annual birthday brunch at tibet nepal house in pasadena. when i found out it was their $9.99 "champagne brunch" which means unlimited cheap champagne AND nepalese foods, i immediately clicked "yes." i just don't say no to that kind of stuff....
since the birthday girl went early, she nabbed a good, spacious area for us to sit. the ambience was rather chill and i loved the big cutout footprints that adorned the ceiling. as a big buddha statue watched your every move, you can have a sip of their cheap champagne and get a refill or two if you want. nice!
the buffet was rather limited but you still get an array of eats to choose from. on my plate, i managed to nab myself a piece of tadoori-esque chicken, some mushrooms and peas curry, green beans, and a potato curry (i appreciated the number of vegetarian options available even though i eat dead animals on a daily basis). i also got myself a little bowl of their lentil soup which was rather salty. overall, i thought nepalese food tasted very similar to indian food, but the spice level is way low, if any. i would have gone back for a second helping of everything, but a bus dropped off a LOAD of folks from i don't know where and the buffet was cleaned out in seconds. this is what egypt must have looked like after the locusts swept through.
