Himalayan market, eatery opens in Old Ashburn

The new Nepalese grocery store and takeaway eatery has opened its doors in Ashburn. We’re talking about Kirana Pasal (the market) and Tempo Shack Nepalese Street Eats (the takeout restaurant inside the market).

Kirana Pasal is located in the Old Ashburn Square plaza on Ashburn Road. That’s the center with the 7-Eleven store.

The new business — which has the full name of Kirana Pasal Himalayan Grocery & Meat Co. — saw some crowds on its first day on Sunday.

The Burn had a reporter there who said there was a band playing outside the store to welcome guests.

He also tried Tempo Shack’s Steamed Momo Chicken and the Aloo Nimki, calling the latter “spicy.”
