Cheap Eats 2010: Himalayan Heritage

100 places that offer great food at low prices.

Why go: The hot zing and smoky spices of Indian and Nepalese cuisines get the spotlight at this dimly lit haunt that feels far more ornate than its Adams Morgan neighbors.

What to get: Steamed purses of vegetables or ground chicken known as momo dumplings; battered cauliflower in a spicy, ketchup-based sauce; aloo chaat salad, a cooling mixture of chickpeas, potatoes, and fried crackers; mixed bread basket; grated carrots cooked in milk and butter and topped with ground pistachios.

Best for: A date—ask for one of the cushioned banquettes.

Insider tip: A number of dishes include a protein with a sauce of peppers, ginger, and green chili—check the menu carefully to avoid redundancy.
