Yak & Yeti Opens New Restaurant and Event Center on Hampden

Yak & Yeti is familiar to those with a thirst for craft beer and a hunger for Nepalese and Indian food. The beers, like the award-winning Chai Milk Stout, show up at tap rooms around town, while the Tibetan and Nepalese specialties are rare enough in the metro area that devotees are willing to make cross-town treks for the momo and thukpa. With two restaurants -- the Arvada brewpub and a second location in Westminster -- and an international market (also in Arvada) on the northwest side of the city, owner Dol Bhattarai has decided to expand to a new part of town. Yak & Yeti's new restaurant and events center opened on Hampden Avenue earlier this week in the building that previously housed a Crystal Rose Events Center.
