My wife, Maya Gurung States and I would like to thank you for your decision to visit Everest Café & Bar and trusting us to prepare your meal. Everest Café & Bar has been serving Nepalese, Indian & Korean cuisine in the city of St. Louis since 2004.
The mission of Everest Café & Bar is to promote a healthy lifestyle by serving fresh heart healthy nutritous meals for our customers.
I was born and raised in Manang, Nepal. When my both parents passed away I moved to Kathmandu at age 16. In Kathmandu, I became homeless, because I was too young and could not find a job. I remember everyday, I was knocking on doors and picking the garbage. Many days, I had nothing to eat. Many nights, I could not sleep, because of the fear over my safety and hunger. After many months of my life struggles on the streets of Kathmandu, I finally found a job at the KC restaurant as a dishwasher and busboy. While, I was working at the KC restaurant, I developed two dreams: a) to own a restaurant and b) to help children and women who are poor and suffering as I was.
While I was working at the KC restaurant, I met Dr. James H. States, M.D. I tribute the name of Everest Café & Bar to my dear father, Dr. James H. States, who brought me to the United States following his successful ascent of Mt. Everest in 1983.
Chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes are the leading causes of death in the City of St. Louis. I completed my master’s and doctorate’s in public health. I worked many years in area of chronic disease prevention and health promotion. I believe that I have prepared myself to be the most qualified chef in today’s restaurant industry to prepare the heart healthy & nutritious meals for my customers.
Again, thank you for your decision to visit Everest Café & Bar and supporting my dream. Your satisfaction is my primary concern. If you have any questions or comments, please let me know. In addition, because of your support, Everest Café and Bar has been working to improve the health status of children and women who are poor and suffering as I was.
