Who knew that you could get a taste of Nepal right here in Melbourne without the hassle of the travel to South Asia? Sure, Asian food and restaurants can be found all over the City but not with the unique flavors and recipes that come from Nepal.

If you haven’t tried Nepalese food before, it is a delicious blending of South Asian dishes with the freshest ingredients. Some recipes are vegetarian and gluten-free dishes are also increasing in popularity. The classic momo is a pan-fried pork dumpling which is great for a starter. You then have to try another favorite – goat curry. This is traditionally made with cumin and coriander spicing and in a rich curry sauce.

Some of the best places to eat in Melbourne are Asian and Chinese restaurants, but when you are ready for a real treat you have to try Mandala Restaurant and Bar in South Yarra.

They have had this prestige for a couple of years now, so it’s pretty clear they know what they’re doing.

Being a top Melbourne restaurant isn’t an easy feat. We are spoiled with heaps of excellent restaurants and Asian restaurants probably have the highest percentage in the City.
