I believe I owe you all an apology for my long silence.
Speaking in restaurant terms, I admit that things have been hectic yet successful the past 11 months. Hard to believe but it’s going to be almost a year since we had the “grand” opening of the small and somewhat homey restaurant. To be precise, September 17th is when the restaurant hits one year.
In the past few months, he has invested his time and money to renovate the restaurant, to build relationships with the customers, and to plan innovative ideas to better serve his customers. So far, in my opinion, he’s going in the right direction.
In addition to all the planning and prepping for the restaurant, my brother got married.
Congrats to him and my sister-in-law!

Whether it’s coming in as a customer, spreading the word about how good and delicious our food is, or bringing in new friends to eat at our restaurant, YOU have definitely helped in the process of my brother’s success. Thank you!

Lastly, one of the main reason that inspired me to write a new blog post is because my brother is and has been for a while now, the main chef. His previous status as owner/manager, along with his experience in cooking, only allowed him to work with the tandoori oven (clay oven). Our former Chef Lhakpa (meaning wind in Tibetan) taught him everything he needed to know about cooking the rest of the items from the menu such as our famous Chicken Tikka Masala, Aloo Gobi, Chicken Biryani, Kongpo Shaptak and so on. After being taught all the skills to mastering the dishes, my apprentice brother, stepped up and became the teacher. Probably not the best analogy, but I witnessed the metamorphosis of my brother from being an apprentice to the main chef.

As for Chef Lhakpa, like the "wind", he came, did his job of teaching my brother and graciously retired his position to further continue his passion for teaching and cooking elsewhere.
Thank you to Chef Lhakpa for teaching my brother. Be sure to visit us from time to time.
Thank you to our frequent customers and new customers for your support and having an appetite for Tibetan/Indian dishes!!
