Durango’s high-altitude, mountainous landscape makes it feel like the perfect place to find a restaurant serving food from the high-altitude, mountainous lands of Tibet and Nepal. And that’s where Himalayan Kitchen comes in.

Walk through the entryway bordered by prayer flags and the first thing you’ll notice will be the spices of the Indian, Nepalese, and Tibetan dishes. The yak korma will likely pique your curiosity, as it should—this delicious meat can be hard to find, and comes highly recommended by both locals and staff. (It turns out the high altitude of Durango makes it a great spot for raising yaks, so the Himalayan Kitchen is able to source from local ranchers.) 

If yak isn’t on your bucket list, the menu has plenty of other options ranging from familiar Indian dishes like tikka masala and saag panner to the classic Nepalese daal bhat. There are also plenty of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options, too.
