Himalayan Kitchen + Little Oven | Honolulu, Hawaii

Last night's date brought us to two very different places. We got dinner at the Himalayan Kitchen in Kaimuki then moved on to Little Oven for some dessert.

Himalayan Kitchen
1137 11th Ave
Honolulu, HI 96816
(808) 735-1122

Little Oven
1467 S King St
Honolulu, HI 96814-2504
(808) 947-6836

Himalayan Kitchen is a small place that specializes in Nepalese cuisine. There are lots of great vegetarian options for my wife, so it's definitely one of her favorite places to go.

We started with the garlic jalapeƱo naan. Somehow, the spiciness of this dish sort of crept up on us. About halfway through, out mouths were on fire, but it sure was worth it!
I ordered the mixed Biryani, which is made with bits of lamb, chicken and shrimp cooked with vegetables and basmati rice. The mild was plenty spicy for me (and I'm the kind of guy that loves to put Tobasco on everything).
Wifey got the Malai Kafta. The best description I can come up with is that these are "meatless meatballs."

After dinner, we really needed something to cool our taste buds, so it was off to Little Oven. The first time we went (a few weeks ago), it was pretty empty and last night was a little more crowded, but it still wasn't packed.

I ordered the Peach Cobbler. It was the perfect size, but could have used a scoop of vanilla.

The perfect end to Wifey's dinner was the Ice Milk/Sorbet sampler. It was meticulously put together, but she did miss the mint chip scoop they had in there the last time.
