Nepali, Tibetan, & Indian Restaurant, St. Paul MN

March 2016: The weather here in St. Paul Minnesota has been delightfully sunny and warm. I stopped at a restaurant that offers Nepali, Tibetan, & Indian Cuisine on my way to the James J. Hill House for a tour.

Vegetarian Nepali, Tibetan, & Indian Cuisine

Everest on Grand offers a lunch buffet every day which includes vegan and vegetarian options. I am not a fan of spicy food so I was a bit apprehensive when I entered, but the food was mild and flavorful. I had brown rice, a vegetable & dal dish, potatoes, salad, and dessert. Yum!

I will definitely return!

High Vibe Fudge

Are you in the mood for some high vibe fudge? The Brigittine Monks in Amity Oregon make fudge with real chocolate, fresh dairy butter, real cream, fresh tree nuts, and natural flavors. The fudge is especially high vibe because it is made by Brigittine Monks who dedicate their lives to prayer and work.

If you are in the Willamette Valley, OR, I recommend that you stop in to purchase high vibe fudge. If you cannot make it to Oregon, call and order your fudge over the phone, 503-835-8080, or online.

June 2015: The Inn at Manzanita is on the Oregon Coast, not even two blocks from a spectacular beach. The Inn is privately owned and the owners will take good care of you.

The room I stayed in had a king size bed, gas fireplace, jacuzzi tub for two, a kitchenette, and living room area. It was comfortable and relaxing. In the office they have some DVDs that you can borrow, and I took advantage of it and watched a movie in the evening.
