Himalayan Market Takes a Trek 

Side Dishes: Store moves to another Old North End location

Published January 27, 2010 at 5:58 a.m.

Last January, Nepalese brothers Ongyel and Tashi Sherpa opened the Himalayan Food Market at 28 North Street, near China Express and Waggy’s. Next week they’ll move to 97 North Street, across from Dion Security.

It’s a difference of just a couple of blocks, but the Sherpas believe the swap will be good for business. “We have a lot of big windows and private parking in the back for customers,” Ongyel explains.

Although the spot is a bit smaller, the Sherpas’ line of Nepalese and Indian products will be growing. “We’ll have some more spices, curry-style sauces, some different brands of rice,” Ongyel notes. “We’re going to have fresh vegetables as well.” That’s in addition to the snacks, various kinds of flour, exotic fruit juices and sweets the store already sells.

“It’s very nice for people who come from so far away to come in here and see [familiar] products,” Ongyel says. “We really want to bring the tastes that we have in Nepal to here.”
