Gorkha Palace brings organic Indian Nepali Tibetan cuisine to Holidazzle

After starting out selling their famous Potstickers known as MoMo 12 years ago at the Mill City Farmers Market, friends Sarala Kattel and Rashmi Bhattachan talked about opening a restaurant together.

In 2010, they decided that the timing was right.

Combining that timing with a great location, the two opened Gorkha Palace—a family-owned restaurant in Northeast Minneapolis that offers authentic Nepali, Indian and Tibetan cuisine.

Now in 2018, you’ll have a chance to enjoy Gorkha Palace at Holidazzle. They’ll be in Loring Park on Thursdays through Sundays from November 23 through December 23.

They can’t wait to see you there.

“We have heard nothing but great things about the Holidazzle. Even the cold winter months do not keep the Minnesotans from celebrating the outdoors and the city has done a great job of providing the platform to celebrate the holidays,” Bhattachan said. “We are particularly excited that for the first time there will be some great Indian Nepali foods offered to the Holidazzle visitors who can keep themselves warm with what we have to offer.”

When you visit Gorkha Palace at Holidazzle, you can choose between their Turkey Momo (steamed potstickers with Ferndale Farms turkey, onions, ginger, garlic and spices), Vegetarian Momo (steamed potstickers with spinach, cabbage, onions, ginger, garlic and spices) or a mixed vegetable curry with coconut milk.

Both Kattel and Bhattachan are both from Nepal, and when they opened Gorkha Palace in 2010 they realized that while there were a lot of Indian restaurants in the Twin Cities, none focused on conscientiously-prepared Indian Nepali cuisine supporting local organic, sustainable agriculture with local meat producers.

Already having 20 employees and establishing themselves in the heart of Northeast Minneapolis, Gorkha Palace hopes to gain even more exposure for their restaurant by being a vendor at Holidazzle.

They look forward to offering their organic Indian Nepali Tibetan cuisine to you as you celebrate the holiday season.

“The holiday season in Minnesota is spectacular,” Bhattachan said. “It will be fun celebrating the outdoors with fun activities such as shopping, dining, skating and more.”
