Get the whole family in the Nepali spirit with a plate of Cheura Tareko at Himalayan Yak. This kid-friendly "beaten rice" dish has spicy undertones and a salty kick that makes polishing off this plate a breeze. It comes tossed with mild spices, crunchy soy beans, a dried chilies that add just enough heat.
