#2667 #S1294 - Himalayan Sherpa House, Seattle - 12/5/2014

Himalayan Sherpa House, Tangletown, Seattle, WA
Update: Himalayan Sherpa House closed Aug 15, 2021.

If you drive around Seattle, perhaps letting friends and events take you from one area to the next, you'll discover a lot of distinct neighborhoods, but it is very unlikely that you'll discover "Tangletown." In addition to being off the beaten path from any one well known area to another, the surrounding streets are all cattywampus, as the roads angling off the curves of Greenlake intersect with the neat grid platted north/south and a third section of angular streets that looks like it was pasted over the top the others in some kindergarten project.

But if you do stumble upon the "microhood" where Wallingford meets Greenlake, you know there's a small cache of bars and restaurants that make it well worth firing up your Google Maps. This brief commercial stretch of 55th/56th Street has a cozy, decades old dive (Leny's), an abstrusely named, upscale restaurant from one of Seattle's most famous chefs (mkt.), a Japanese dessert bakery (Hiroki), a top notch craft beer bar (Burgundian), a brew pub, a donut shop, and a hot dog shop -- and once hosted Seattle's best tiki bar. Now you can add to that a Nepalese/Tibetan/Indian restaurant named "Himalayan Sherpa House" not simply because of the evocative description but because their family name is actually "Sherpa."

The vibe is elegant and intimate, and the food and cocktails were quite pleasant.The small bar across from the white tablecloths has a limited by nice selection of wines, cocktails, and beers including a house brew that thew worked on with Boundary Bay.
