Nepalico... it all started from this one text...
As you can see from my Foodie Blog going to Indian or Nepalese restaurants is a rarity for us but after Mari's very positive reaction to Nepalico's curry lunch set I had to check it out!
Daily special was Keema Curry for 850yen that includes Salad, Mini-Chai and large portion of rice if you prefer~. Great to see a spot open til 3pm! Can avoid the lunch rush in busy Shibuya...
Mari recommended both the Keema Curry lunch and the A-Set Lunch with 3 curries... more Menu pics here.
Lunch set salad... sweet dressing... very tasty.
Mini-Chai was very mini but cinnamon sweetness went so well with the curry.
Mari's Keema Lunch set arrived first... she went for Spicy Level 3 (hottest). But there was a very gentle taste to this... Keema always gives me an impression of an overwhelming flavor but this was a very nice change. She asked for a small serving of rice.
My "Dal Bhat Nonveg" A Lunch set arrives... sorry if I get this wrong... small dish of softly seasoned potatoes, spicy chicken curry and finally a soupy bean dish. Declined the large and went for a normal portion of rice. As with the Keema the curry wasn't overbearing and the taste won't linger on in your mouth for hours afterwards.... a nice dish.
Interior was comfortable and service came with a friendly smile throughout the meal. There is some counter seating in case you go alone.
And we closed with a sweet lassi... oishii!
Mari's circular creation... think me helping with her English stressed her out a bit.
Over a great spot and service to match. The owner who took care of us is on Facebook too :).
