Dear Customers:

Don’t panic but be prepared for COVID-19. We practice good hygiene from hand washing to food safety. My wife, Maya (from South Korea), and I would like to thank you for your support & trust us to prepare your meal. We have been serving Nepalese, Indian & Korean cuisine in the city of St. Louis since 2004.

I was born and raised in Manang, Nepal. When 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 every day, I was knocking on doors and looking for food in garbage cans. Many days, I had nothing to eat. Many nights, I could not sleep, because of the fear of my safety and hunger. After many months of my life struggles on the street of Kathmandu, I finally found a job at the KC restaurant as a dishwasher & busboy. While I was working at the KC restaurant, I developed two dreams. Dream of owning a restaurant and to help children 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 had an opportunity to come to the United States after my father, Dr. States adopted me in Nepal following his 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 believe that diet is an important factor in preventing chronic diseases and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. The mission of Everest Café & Bar is to promote a healthy lifestyle by preparing fresh heart-healthy nutritious meals for our customers”.

I completed my graduate education in social work and public health at Saint Louis University (www.slu.edu). I worked many years in areas 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 heart-healthy & nutritious meals for my customers.

Again, thank you for trusting us to prepare your meal and supporting my dream. Your satisfaction is my primary concern. If you have any questions or comments, please let me know. 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.

Best regards,

Dr. Devi Gurung States, DHSc., MPH., MSW., Executive Chef & Owner
