As a birthday gift, I took my friend to Bath for the christmas markets (I didn't really take her, we both got on a train, and she went of her own free will). Her birthday was in June, so she'd been waiting a while. We had a fun day out, lots of shopping, a couple of bus tours, and eventually we were hungry enough to start looking for food. We asked the nice bus tour guy, and he recommended a couple of places, and we decided to go for the Nepalese restaurant, Yak Yeti Yak.
We hadn't booked a table, and we ended up in an interesting part of the restaurant where you sit on cushions on the floor. When trying to sit down, I may have missed the cushions and ended up with my legs in the air which was probably the comedy highlight for my friend. Unfortunately for you (fortunately for me), she was too slow with the camera and didn't manage to catch this.
For starters we shared the Malekhu Macha - crispy deep fried salmon, and the Polayko Masu, marinated lamb strips. I think we both enjoyed the lamb strips the most, although mine did have a few too many chewy bits, but the flavour was good.
For mains, my friend went for Chicken Jhol and I went for the Yak Yeti Yak beef. The chicken jhol was good but the beef was really really tasty and there was a vast amount of it. I also ordered a Musurko Dal, but the consistency of this put me off a little, as it was quite like baby food.
My friend had dessert, the 'freak street apples', which was essentially an apple tart, while I chose to get a second mango lassi in place of dessert as I love those things!
It was definitely a fun experience, although I did have to keep shifting position to avoid getting pins and needles!
