Before he moved to Boise in 2003, Raj Shrestha was a travel agent in his home of Katmandu, Nepal. In 2013, after several years working at Micron and as a Nepali language interpreter for both St. Luke's and Saint Alphonsus, Shrestha opened Mt. Everest MoMo Cafe so he could share Himalayan dumplings or momo, as well as Tibetan and Indian dishes with his new community. When he's not preparing a variety of momo, thukpa, samosa, makhani, korma or nearly a dozen different types of homemade naan, hands-on owner/chef Shrestha is happy to answer questions and help customers plan trips to beautiful Nepal.
Shrestha said he has "worked hard to make sure his customers are happy and they enjoy their meals." If they're digging into momo, sweet Indian curry and chau-chau (Tibetan noodles) and sopping up sauces with naan, they are and they most definitely do.
