MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Located on the main drag of Milwaukee Avenue, this cozy spot showcases its Nepali heritage and knowledge of Indian specialties via its cooking. While fans of the sub-continent love Cumin for its clean, modern surrounds, linen-lined tables struggle to contain the myriad plates that pile up during the lunchtime buffet. Paintings of mountain scenes decorate crimson-red walls and prep diners for flavorful food from the Himalayan frontier. This menu has most of the usual suspects, but get gnawing on chicken momos (dumplings) accompanied by a tomato dipping sauce laced with turmeric, garlic, and chili powder. Soak up pieces of garlic naan in an intensely spiced lamb vindaloo stocked with soft potatoes. Cool down over a light and refreshing Taj Mahal lager.
