Sayapatri is a small Nepalese restaurant near the Asco Building in Al Quoz. I visited this popular little eatery just after the lunch rush and its simple interior looked like a stampede had ripped through it. The place is run by a chatty, cheerful Nepalese lady by the name of Tara. She tried (in vain) talking me through the scribblings of their daily dishes on the whiteboard, but I was already sold on the first item – Pani Puri – in a Nepalese restaurant, really? So, I ordered it. I also ordered steamed momos, half buff and half chicken. And as a main, on Tara’s recommendation, I ordered a mixed (momo and noodle) Thukpa, which is the Himalayan version of Ramen Soup. Affordability is not the only reason this restaurant is so popular – the food is amazing – the best Nepalese outside Meena Bazaar and well worth a visit (you will not regret ordering everything I did).
