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.

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:
