One of San Francisco's two Himalayan/Nepalese restaurants, Little Nepal (925 Cortland) in Bernal Heights, is hosting a fundraiser Thursday, April 30, to benefit victims of the devastating earthquake that occurred there Saturday. As Eater reports, via a Facebook posting, chef-owner Prem Tamang will be serving a special menu on Thursday evening and asking customers for modest suggested donations of $20 to $30, and all proceeds will be sent specifically to Tamang's home district of Kavrepalanchok, to help with the relief effort.
They say to "come anytime!" between 5 and 10 p.m. but won't be accepting reservations for the event. You are supposed to let the host at the door know that you are there for the donation-only meal, which includes only a limited menu and excludes beverages.
Also, donations are being accepted at the restaurant over the next several days, even if you do not have time to drop in for a meal.
The other Nepalese/Himalayan restaurant in town is Red Chilli in the Tenderloin, while others in the Bay Area include Himalayan Tandoori and Curry House in Berkeley, Hamro Aangan in Albany, Himalayan Kitchen in Mountain View, and Yeti Restaurant in Santa Rosa.
