We can’t think of a better name for the restaurant opening on 311 Divis than Metro Kathmandu. It incorporates the name of the late Le Metro and creates an oxymoron. The whole play on the urban meets Nepalese countryside comes to fruition in Metro Kathmandu’s menu. With items like crab momos, duck kabobs and shrimp pakoda, traditional Nepalese dishes are “Californianized” into a hip small plates menu. But don’t worry, for those traditionalists (or diners wanting to try a typical Nepalese dish), there are several “unadulterated” plates on the menu. Also, Metro Kathmandu has plans to serve weekend brunch, though that menu has yet to be released.
