Dishes not to miss: Chicken Momos, Garlic Naan

 

The Everest Momo Shack was the most unexpected find for me in Jackson Hole, WY. After a week of trekking through Yellowstone and eating food with no spices whatsoever, I was near desperate when I chanced upon this cute little colorful restaurant, which smelled of curry!

Here’s where I met the lovely Sange and Rita Sherpa, a couple who immigrated from Khumjung, which is in the Everest region of Nepal. This industrious pair decided to open this tiny eatery, which offers a limited menu of Indian and Nepali dishes. The menu includes momos, samosa, naan; lamb, chicken, or vegetable curries, chow mein and saag paneer. If you like spice then ask for their special hot sauce – it is really good.

 

 

The Everest Momo Shack is only open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays evenings from May to September. The Sherpas have worked out a mutually beneficial, symbiotic relationship with D.O.G (a burrito place), which occupies the same space during the daytime. It’s a wonderful idea to share a space that supports two small businesses.

The food is not outstanding but it sure does hit the spot for anyone craving some ethnic South Asian eats which is impossible to find in this area. Sange Sherpa, the owner was an absolute delight to sit and chat with whilst munching on hot momos and gently spiced chicken tikka masala.

The Everest Momo Shack is BYOB and has outdoor seating only. It is a great little spot to spend a heart-warming evening at.

 

Here is some of what we ate:

 

CHICKEN MOMOS

 

CHICKEN TIKKA MASALA

 

CHICKEN CURRY

 

GARLIC NAAN


CHICKEN CHOWMEIN NOODLES

Dishes not to miss: Very Berry Pie

 

Beyond the Grand Tetons lies a broad valley called Jackson Hole. Aptly called “The Republican Martha’s Vineyard”, this elite little town offers some really interesting food spots.

One of the most popular breakfast spots in town is called “The Bunnery”. One can find long lines snaking out the front on weekends for brunch. The Bunnery offers a breakfast, lunch and dinner menu, which mostly lean towards items with bread and baked goods.

We tried a few of their desserts and honestly I was not impressed. The thing to try there is meant to be their “Very Berry Pie” which was good. They make a great piecrust but everything else we tried was really quite mediocre. The apples in the Caramel Apple Pie were too hard and chewy to eat and the Raspberry Truffle Chocolate Cake was really dry. We even tried the chocolate cake, which was very average as was the carrot cake.

Perhaps the brunch is better but I’m still wondering what all the hype is about?

 

Here is some of what we ate:

Dishes not to miss: The Hay Shaker ( it needs a lot of fixing though)

 

 

The Grand Tetons are a truly majestic mountain range that tower 7,000 feet above the valley floor. The Tetons encompass with their regality coniferous forests, alpine meadows, glaciers and multicolored wildflowers. A great (quick way) to experience the Tetons in all its majesty is to take the tram ride at Teton Village, which put you at a 9,000 feet elevation in under 15 minutes. Here, one can truly enjoy all the grandeur this mountain range has to offer.

All that elevation can sure make one hungry and Teton village offers many eating places. We had lunch at the Mangy Moose, which is located right at the bottom of the slopes. It offers a splendid view of the mountains but the food was pretty mediocre. I ordered a veggie sandwich, which was pretty decent. The rest of the meal however was very forgetful, just like our friendly but absentminded server – (she kept forgetting to bring out parts of our order).

The Mangy Moose is not an eating spot I would repeat. I think that Teton Village has many better eateries that offer better food and service.

 

Here is some of what we ate:

Dishes not to miss: Huckleberry Scones

 

Woodside Bakery is a great little find in West Yellowstone, MT,  which is a town that’s does not have much going on for die-hard foodies. This is a great little bakery just a couple of blocks outside Yellowstone’s west entrance.

Woodside Bakery offers a great range of breakfast sandwiches, baked goods and made to order sandwiches. Everything here is made fresh, including the bread they use for their sandwiches. They have a great selection of baked treats. Their huckleberry scone was really delicious.

At the Woodside Bakery, there is a little eat-in section where you can enjoy a cup of coffee with your meal. You can also opt to get your order packed to go, which is always a great idea when one is out and about touring the beautiful landscapes of Yellowstone.

 

Here is some of what we ate:

 

HUCKLEBERRY SCONES

Running Bear Pancake House in West Yellowstone probably offers some of the best eats in town, with some of the nicest people serving it. This cheery little pancake house located at the West entrance of Yellowstone National Park, serves only breakfast and lunch. It is open from 7:00 AM to 2:00 PM everyday. You should be aware that they are not open year round. They are closed Nov.- late Dec. and mid-Mar.-May 1.

Everything at Running Bear is made from scratch. They offer a large variety of the regular breakfast items such as eggs to order, hash browns etc. They make wonderful baked goods such as muffins, pies and so on. Their cinnamon rolls are a must try. At Running Bear it a good idea to pack one of their “to go” picnic lunches which can be savored while enjoying the sights of Yellowstone.

CINNAMON ROLL

The Mammoth Hot Springs have been rated at one of the top five things to see in Yellowstone National Park. These gorgeous colored terraces are made from travertine and steam with hot water that comes up from the limestone beds. The hues of the formations are truly unreal. The landscape is just stunning.

West Yellowstone is a tiny town right by the West entrance of Yellowstone National Park. Good food is really hard to find around here especially at dinnertime. Luckily, our hotel had a pretty good restaurant called The Branch where we could find some decent dishes.

 

 

One of my favorite dishes was their Grizzly Bear Salad with Cha-Cha Chicken, which is served with a huckleberry dressing. It was a really nice tangy, crisp salad. Their sandwiches and desserts were rather standard. However do NOT have the breakfast here – it was truly terrible. I don’t know how anyone can mess up breakfast so badly but you are much better of trying The Running Bear Pancake House or The Woodside Bakery.

The servers at the Branch are really friendly. Many of them are visiting students from countries all over the world, who are a part of an exchange program. Chatting with them and sharing experiences was really cool.

 

Here is some of what we ate:

 

POTATO CHIPS

 

BREAD SKILLET

 

CAST IRON HOT SPINACH DIP

 

GRIZZLY BEAR SALAD

 

BUFFALO CHICKEN WINGS

 

HAMBURGER

Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, is a geological wonder that was created by a volcanic explosion some 640,00 years ago. What resulted from that event is a glorious landscape that includes gushing geysers, multicolored hot springs, canyons, waterfalls, fumaroles, mudspots and wildlife that is beyond compare. Yellowstone National Park is historic as it was the world’s first national park in 1872.
