    I recently went to try a Nepalese/Indian place, called Mt. Everest, with a good coworker of mine for my last day of work before heading home. The restaurant was located on a street corner on Telegraph. The outside looks unspectacular but the food more than made up for the lack of outdoor decor. Since this was my first time trying Nepalese food, I decided to ask the wait staff what they would recommend to order. They sure weren't expecting that I was going to give them the extra challenge of picking something that was gfree! Even though the wait staff were unaware of what gluten was and gluten free dishes, I kindly explained to them what I could and could not eat and based on that, they were able to recommend some dishes for me to order. I ended up ordering one of Mt.Everest's monthly specials, a delicious and exploding-with-flavor mango chicken swimming in a sea of sweet mango chutney with a side of basmati pea rice with cumin. I must say my taste buds were VERY happy with this dish! Did I forget to mention this dish was organic too? I'm sure that could be one of the reasons why it tasted so good! :) Also, one more thing I wanted to add was that the waitstaff gave our table some free appetizer! The appetizer were these lightly salted crispy rice chips called, Papadum, which I later researched are traditional crackers that usually accompany a meal in India. The crackers are made from chickpeas, rice flour, black gram, and lentils; all gfree! Props to the waitstaff for making my first experience here great! I will definitely be back to try some new dishes!
