A New Delhi staple for years, Yeti brings Tibetan, Nepali and Bhutanese cuisine to Mumbai, and we're super excited to dig in! Here's what we found on our culinary journey to the Himalayas.
Occupying a space inside Raasta, Khar, Yeti has a pleasant rooftop-style vibe complete with fairy lights and comfortable seating - think tables and sofas adorned with bright cushions. It's got a bit of Yeti's distinctive Tibetan-inspired style, with edits for Mumbai's crowd. Some of us who've been to the OG location at Hauz Khas Village in Delhi may miss Yeti's original style, but this comes pretty close.
We started our meal with classics from the menu - the delicious mutton momos encased in a paper-thin wrapper, filled with juicy mutton mince. Served with 3 different sauces, in increasing levels of heat from mild sesame to hot! hot! hot! chili, these were tasty and moreish.
Next up we tried their jhol momos, chicken momos served with a tomato-based chicken mince gravy which was also flavourful. The stand-out in the starters were the lemon-fried pork, a schnitzel-style pork cutlet that's crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Cut into bite-sized pieces, they are super delicious dipped in the spicy sauce they're served with.
Next up, we dived into the ema datshi, a soul-satisfying Bhutanese-style bowl of chilies and cheese that we just could not get enough of. Served with a ting mo - which could have been a tad fluffier, if we're being honest - it still made for a delicious bowl that we practically licked clean! Lastly - by which point we were almost gasping from the amount we ate - we tried the steamed fish in cabbage leaf that was mildly flavoured with soya and timbur pepper - while not our favourite, this could work if you enjoy seafood with mild flavours or are being health conscious!
If you're heading here for lunch, expect to be served on the 4th Floor, inside Raasta. Evenings the rooftop is open for dining, so we'd definitely suggest heading here for a night under fairy lights.
