Of Irving’s growing crop of Nepalese restaurants, Cafemandu boasts the biggest and deepest list of momos, the country’s beloved pleated dumplings. Cafemandu even has dessert momos, but it’s probably best to start with the classic steamed variety, to admire the thin, nearly translucent dough around the plump filling, then work your way through spicy chili momos covered in hot sauce, momos in broth and even dumplings bathed in cheese.

Top pick: As good as dumplings are, we’re also obsessed with bara, a lentil flour pancake with ground chicken and a fried egg hidden in the middle.

Fun fact: If you’re waiting on a takeout order, there’s a guitar on a stand in the corner that guests are invited to strum.
