Guest post from a New Flavors renter/chef/entrepreneur/friend:
Hi, my name is Dinesh Mishra (Danny)and here is my story.
“I came to the United States in 2010 as a student at MSUM in
Moorhead, MN. Then I moved to Kentucky to continue my school and help my uncle to start a Nepali Indian restaurant.
Since my childhood, I have had a passion for cooking and this passion grew as I grew. My journey begins from there as a cook and as a manager. Since then I got chance to work with several chefs and learn several style of Nepali, north Indian, south Indian, and Indochinese cooking.
After I finished my study, there was a big chance in life. I joined the US Army as a engineer and got deployed to Kuwait and Afghanistan for a year.
It was a tough time for me and my family. During this time, however, I made lots of friends and managed my cooking too. I love cooking and playing around with food.
After I got back from deployment, my wife Ashmita and I decided to start our own restaurant and serve authentic Nepali Indian food to our Fargo/ Moorhead community.
Big thanks to my dearest friend Mr. Padam Gurung who is also my head chef and my business partner to get my restaurant, Himalayan Yak, started and ongoing right now.
We don’t just serve food, we share our experiences and our culture with our customers. We believe in caring, not just serving. It’s been three months we are in business and we have great reviews and great customer service that motivate us to do much better on up coming days.
We would like to thank new flavors to give us an opportunity to come down here at Grand Forks and serve the Grand Forks community with our food.
Come and try our food and give us feedback! :)”
