Yeti Restaurant: Nepali and Indian; Well Worth the Drive—and the Bike Ride!
By Peter Bittner
Sometimes we SacFoodies explore outside Sacramento’s city limits. It’s not that there’s any scarcity of diverse food options here, but there’s always something exciting about seeing what other cities have to offer. On a recent trip to Davis, I spent a long, hot day biking on the cozy college town’s lovely path. At the end of it, tired and hungry, I visited a local gem: The Yeti Restaurant. There are few outdoor patios better in Davis, and not many establishments offering both authentic Nepali and Indian cuisine!
Indoors, the décor and music invite visitors into a Himalayan-inspired atmosphere with comfortable seating, warm lighting, and excellent service! The menu is varied and customers can hardly go wrong. Fan favorites include the Tikka Masala, the lamb or veggie Momos (traditional dumplings), and the many types of curries—just make sure to specify the level of spice you prefer! After the heat of the evening, I really enjoyed my Thai beer, Singha, commonly offered in Northern India and assorted Meat Plate Appetizer.
Hope you are inspired to diverge from your normal culinary routine! I’m certainly glad I wandered into The Yeti Restaurant. Timely and accessible service staff, regular specials, and humanitarian efforts like donating all the tips to relief efforts the week of the April 2015 Nepal earthquake, make this one of my favorite places in Davis.
