My husband and I reached an important milestone last Thursday: We left the baby with a babysitter who is NOT related to one of us. Considering we don’t get out much without the baby, you’d think we’d use the opportunity to spend the time together on a romantic night out. Instead, we decided to use the time to catch up on some “It’s all about ME and ONLY me time”. I decided to use my “Me” time with my best girlfriend who I feel like I never see anymore, and Joe decided to spend some alone time participating in one of his favorite activities: buffet dining.
One of Joe’s favorite buffets in town is at Mt. Everest Cafe, located near Drake and Shields. Mt. Everest Cafe is interesting because it serves up authentic dishes from Nepal and Tibet. If you’re skeptical of it’s authenticity, don’t be, it’s straight up sherpa-owned and operated! The cafe does offer a full menu HERE, but if you’re not familiar with the cuisine, the buffet may be a better choice, so you can sample a little bit of everything.
I like Mt. Everest Cafe and accompany Joe there sometimes, but Joe loves it, just like he loves most ethnic food. He spent his high school years in Jakarta, Indonesia and misses the Indonesian specialities he used to buy from the food carts in the city. He is always on the lookout for new… culturally diverse eateries and first discovered Mt. Everest Cafe through a coupon in Valpak. He always makes sure to fish their coupon out of the pack and this is the coupon he took in on Thursday:
You can also find their coupons online HERE.
Joe got $2 off his dinner buffet ($13.95 before discount), and filled several plates, so I know he got his money’s worth. I knew I wanted to blog about his dinner out, so I told him I needed him to take a picture to show everyone how great the food looks. But you should understand something about my husband, he is not one of those people who likes to take pictures of his food at artsy angles. After a little nagging (which always works), he did take a picture, and when he texted it to me he said,
“I took a pic of the food and felt incredibly stupid doing it. That is love right there.”
His text made me laugh out loud. I appreciate the photo because I know he feels like a jackass snapping photos of food while he’s eating alone, but I also appreciate that he made sure his plate looked tidy for the photo! I’ve seen how he piles food on his plate at a buffet, and it never looks this appetizing nor does it usually include so many vegetables.
If you’re a little tired of your usual burgers or pizza, you may want to consider using a coupon to check out Mt. Everest Cafe for a taste of the Himalayas. You can visit their website at http://mteverestcafe.com/.
Coupon offers are available the date that I post them but may change at any time.
