Nepalese cuisine without the passport!!

Feeling bored and listless? Always wanting to go on an exotic holiday without spending too much time and money? Well, fret not, the lions have another little adventure up their sleeves (or fur paws)
If you recall from the last blog (Dreamier Creamier), the lions actually stumbled upon Creamier while looking for Tim's Nepalese Restaurant. Nestled among Toa Payoh lorong 4 HDB flats and a fair distance from any MRT station, Tim's Nepalese Restaurant is certainly a gem in its own way. The lions did not find any difficulty locating the place as it was quite prominent.

A humble interior....Namaste
Tim's Nepalese serves authentic Nepalese and western cuisine. As the lions were more curious about the Nepalese part of Tim's, they decided to try the various Nepalese food shown.

Vegetarian Samosa.... Huge
Vegetarian Samosa, Thukpa and Chicken Tash with Pulau were ordered along with a bottle of Harbin beer at only $4! When the samosas came, the lions were surprised by the size of it....  huge! The samosas was crispy on the outside and the filing inside was hearty. Feels like a Nepalese Old Chang Kee!
Notice why beer is always served first...
Chicken Gumbo Soup

Chicken Tash with Pulau

Dessert... Chocolate pudding
It felt like most things here are big when the Thurpa was served. Quite a big bowl by itself, the Thurpa was a light soupy noodles with a very home cooked taste. You can tell by the lack of MSG in it but yet it emitted a light vegetable taste which compliment well with the pieces of chicken. The sliced pieces of sausages added a bit of salty taste to the noodles. The Chicken Tash with Pulau was a bit more average. The chicken tasted like a milder version of the Indian's Chicken Tikka and the Bismatic rice, that was served with the chicken, was very fragrant.
Ending with a cup of coffee
It was a delightful meal for the lions. The quality of food was good and the portion was big. Service staff was also very attentive. To the lions, the highlight was the isolation of Tim's Nepalese as you really feel like in an old part of Singapore (maybe a 1980s feel) enjoying Nepalese or western food as you look at heartlanders walk by.
Here is our review for Tim's Nepalese Restaurant

Food quality: 7.5 pawprints out of 10
Ambience: 6.5 pawprints out of 10 (The ambience is not bad because of the 80s music they play)
