- Beef flat noodles and Momo Chili at Maya's Kitchen & Bar
Maya's Kitchen & Bar opened on January 24 at 1130 North Avenue in Burlington, taking over the space where Nepali Kitchen & Bar – Burlington operated for about seven months.
The new restaurant is owned by Maya Gurung-Subba, who was chef at Nepali Kitchen, and her husband, Suk Subba. Their Asian-fusion menu includes cuisine from China, India, Nepal, Thailand and Vietnam, the couple said. Among the dishes offered at Maya's Kitchen are Vietnamese flat noodles, saag paneer from India, and momo chili and chicken wings from the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal.
Both spouses were born in Bhutan and grew up in Nepal in refugee camps. At their restaurant, they plan to serve the food they learned to cook from their parents and grandparents, Subba said.
The couple met in 2010 in this country, and Subba moved from Massachusetts to Vermont when they got married. "I like this place so much," Subba said of Burlington. "It reminds me of the place where I grew up — especially the topography."
Maya's Kitchen is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day but Monday.
