In Nepal, Yak and Yeti is the name of a much-loved comedy duo. Their sketch show, Little Nepal, has been the most popular program on state television for over twenty years and the nation’s playgrounds often ring to the sound of Yak and Yeti’s hilarious catchphrases such as ‘Computer says whatever’ and ‘I’m not a hairy Bigfoot, I’m a lady’.
In Edinburgh, the Yak and Yeti is the name of a buzzy, new Nepalese restaurant in the Southside. Serving Nepalese specialities such as mo mo dumplings, Kathmandu butter chicken and Nepalese super dry fry, the Yak and Yeti offers an exciting twist on perhaps more familiar Indian dishes. From super spicy curries that will make your taste buds tingle to creamy kormas, the Yak and Yeti has dishes for everyone.
The friendly staff are more than happy to guide customers through the menu while the kitchen team concentrates on delivering dishes which are packed with fresh, distinct flavours. The Yak and Yeti restaurant has been clocking up some glowing reviews. Writing on 5pm, one customer calls the restaurant ‘incredible’ and the food ‘tremendous’.
The Yak and Yeti Big Deal features two starters, main courses, rice and naans. The price is £24 instead of the usual £63. That’s a humungous 61% saving; cash which will come in handy during the traditionally skint month of January.
