Review on Yak Yeti Yak
Nepal comes to Bath in the shape of this evocative stonewalled basement. Inside it's a colourful mix of artefacts, prints and rugs that provide a perfect backdrop to the food. The menu is short, but it covers most bases from grilled marinated strips of lamb and bhutuwa chicken with ginger, tomato and coriander to kukharako thukpa (a main-course noodle soup that is every Sherpa's staff of life).
Vegetables, pulses and fresh herbs are key ingredients, and the menu offers plenty for those who don't eat meat. Look for vegetarian steamed momo dumplings with fresh hemp seed chutney, aloo bodi tama (fermented bamboo shoots, new potatoes and black-eyed beans) or bakula banda (stir-fried broad beans and white cabbage with spices). Desserts are nostalgic, backpacking classics like 'Freak Street apples' ('the hippies most lasting contribution to Nepal', according to the menu) or spiced chiyaa ice cream.
At lunchtime in addition to the full menu you can also get express one-plate rice and noodle dishes at knock-down prices. Drink Nepalese Ghurka beer.
