Pemba Sherpa, who grew up in the Everest region of Nepal, has been building bridges between his native Nepal and Colorado since immigrating to the U.S. He operates a travel agency called Sherpa Ascent International that organizes both mountaineering expeditions and spiritual journeys, and a restaurant called Sherpa’s Adventurers Restaurant & Bar. The Boulder restaurant rambles through the small rooms of an old Victorian home and spills over to one of Boulder’s most pleasant patios. Don’t miss the house-made steamed dumplings called momos, the soul-satisfying, Popeye-pleasing spiced creamed spinach called saag and the Sherpa stew, a rich mélange of potatoes, dumpling and veggies in a flavorful broth. In addition to the interrelated cuisines of Tibet, Nepal and India, Sherpa’s offers Americanized items for picky eaters of all ages.
