    Dal Bhat -
    It consists of steamed rice and a cooked lentil soup called dal. It is a staple food in these countries. Bhat or Chawal means "boiled rice" in a number of Indo-Aryan languages.

    I lived off dal bhat and yak cheese when I was in Nepal. Nothing for breakfast, cheese for lunch and dal bhat every night. I never got tired of it but to be honest, I quite like routine.

    For the truly authentic experience, a rat should make a dash around the table legs as you eat, pursued by a procession of waiters, swatting brooms.

    I had Momo to start, the Timur Piro for main. It was an interesting dish, quite a rich sauce with more than a bit of a kick. I also had a garlic naan. Like Tek said, have a naan! So much lighter than what we're used to, it was lovely.

    You'll love it, plenty of very spicy dishes, and the lager is probably right up your street.

    As far as I know they have one chef in the kitchen . That's it. Perhaps Stafford College could take an interest as the restaurant owners seem a little shy on recruitment. As lovely as they are they need help and a wanted note in the window hasn't worked

    Unless you know differently of course

    I'm guessing they want someone trained already, rather than someone who'd need training to cook that sort of food? Also, does the chef cook in English? Can be a stressful job and I know most kitchens speak in their native tongue rather than try to constantly translate. I wonder if we have any Nepalese students.....

    Excellent night. The food and service were both excellent and the host was very welcoming. Really enjoyable and won't hesitate in returning.
