Hungry? A new neighborhood Himalayan/Nepalese spot has you covered. Located at 6118 Ridge Ave. in Roxborough, the newcomer is called White Yak.
Self-described as "Philadelphia's original Tibetan restaurant," the eatery offers plates like dumplings in a beef broth, drizzled with spicy sauce and stir-fried vermicelli noodles. Specialty drinks like buttery salted milk tea complete the menu.
The fresh addition has proven popular thus far, with a five-star rating out of 20 reviews on Yelp.
And Jared J. wrote, "Newly remodeled restaurant with great service and unique Himalayan offerings at affordable prices. On our first visit, I enjoyed the sausage and chicken pad Thai."
Yelper Warren W. added, “My table had the La-Ping — chilled, thick, house-cut broad noodles bathed in a thin red sauce, garnished with parsley or cilantro. For $4.95, this is a generous-sized appetizer that can easily be shared by four people."
Head on over to check it out: White Yak is open from 11 a.m.–9:30 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday. (It's closed on Monday.)
