Hungering For Himalayan?
Himalayan/Nepali cuisine... that's something you don't come across every day. Luckily for us, that void in Uptown will soon be filled by Ne:Wa restaurant, soon to open at 5009 N Clark.
In the late 1990s, there were only about 200 Nepalese citizens in the Chicago area. Now there are approximately 7,000, and just a handful of restaurants that serve their native dishes. So hopefully Ne:Wa has tapped into a lucrative market with its location in the Andersonville/Uptown corridor.
The website is pretty sparse at the moment, but the Facebook page has some mouth-watering pictures in the "Building Our Menu" albums. We didn't come across a projected opening date, but we look forward to dining there before long.
