Best Of 2013: Take-Out

Little Nepal recently opened on Flintridge after years of success at its Eighth Street location. The original locale has also expanded, adding a gift shop where full-bellied customers can pick up bags of lentils, Indian spices, and arts and crafts items with ethnic flair. But the reason that Little Nepal has remained popular is definitely the food. Co-owner Raj Adhikari says Nepalese cuisine is very similar to northern Indian cuisine — the spice balance is just slightly different. "We have a touch of Nepal flavor," he says. "All the flavors are very equally settled together." The restaurant does tasty renditions of saag paneer, chicken korma, garlic naan and mango lassi. A buffet is available during limited hours and features many of the restaurant's most popular items, along with a few rotating surprises like gajarka halwa, a creamy carrot dessert. Keep in mind: Take-out is available for both the buffet and regular menu items. — J. Adrian Stanley
