The world is a small place. And Lisbon is even smaller…
Two days ago, we finally met in person fellow travel blogger Yara, from Heart of a Vagabond. We talked about the usual things travelers always end up talking, like trips that lead to more trips and food discoveries that lead to later cravings when you’re somewhere new. We were talking about vegetarian friendly cuisines of the world and about how India really stands out as a foodie heaven for veg lovers. Yara, who is vegan, was mentioning how she had also had an incredible food experience in Nepal. And, somehow, that got us all craving for Nepali momos.
Mentioning out loud “how awesome would it be to find momos here in Lisbon” we were all of a sudden interrupted by a young man sitting nearby us. Krishna introduced himself and told us that [just as if he was sent to us by Mother Nature to fulfill our every need] he owns a Nepali restaurant in Lisbon. And, of course, they serve momos!
Today we walked by Namaste Bhojanalaya in the Intendente neighborhood of Lisbon. The night was chilly and we thought a cup of Nepali tea would warm us up. We met Krishna, and got to know his restaurant with such a homely atmosphere. The tea was good, and we couldn’t help but to order the momos.
Sometimes, you just have to let coincidences lead the way!..
