MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View
Broadly appealing yet truly unique, Himalayan Yak transports diners from Jackson Heights to Central Asia for a hybrid of Nepalese, Tibetan, and Indian cuisines. The room is a bit worn-a testament to its long-standing popularity-but orange walls invoke mountain sunsets; carved dark wood and colorful fabrics create a far-flung ambience. Start with an order of momo: these steamed minced meat-filled dumplings are seasoned with scallions, cilantro, and ginger. Then sample yak in the form of sausage, stew, or cheese. Labsha is a beef and daikon curry served with tingmo, a multi-layered steamed bun for sopping up the mildly spiced sauce, which simply must not be missed. And finally the lassi, a traditional yogurt-based drink, is the perfect complement to every meal.
