The place that replaced Yeti

I got this e-mail today from John and promised to post something on the blog because I knew nothing about it:

My favorite delivery spot has morphed.  Yeti, near Belvedere Square, is no more and now offers Chinese, Indian and American food under a new name.  Do you know anything about the owners and the menu?  I plan on stopping by sometime this weekend.

Does anyone know anything about it? You could start with the name.

Everyone knows yetis are mythological, so I'm not surprised John suddenly can't find it.

Lissa, I believe in yetis! Also Bigfoot. I draw the line at the Easter Bunny.

Dahlink, just because we believe it doesn't mean it is true. After all, I firmly believe in invisible sky creatures.

Yetis do exist. They were discovered by Yukon Corenelius in the 1964.

This is really too bad. Yeti had the best take-out Indian food in town. It was staffed and run largely by Nepalese immigrants(hence the name). Not only was the food excellent, their delivery folks were prompt, polite, and friendly.

Lissa, I am always very skeptical of things that "everyone knows."

Dahlink,
Do you believe in The Great Pumpkin?

PCB Rob--no, I'm agnostic when it comes to pumpkins rising from the pumpkin patch.
But ghosts? Uh huh.

This is really bad news for me. Like denise said, Yeti was great for the food AND the people.

I hope it's the same owners and just a new, expanded menu and new name...

I hear you, Dahlink, but I'm more sceptical of what I know.

I noticed this the other day - wished I had paid more attention the name, but I think it had "Balt" in it. I did notice that it had "Indo-Chinese" food, which could be an interesting addition to the neighborhood's collection of cuisines. Personally, I think there are currently too many Nepalese/Indian restaurants in town. We need more Thai!

The place is now called B'More Pizza. It is not the same owners, although the menu is almost identical. The food (pizza, subs, sides) that we ordered this evening were absolutely awful. The prices increased as well. We did not sample the Indian food this time, but are afraid that won't compare either. We shall miss Yetti and we will most likely have to start going back to Fortunato Bros. (we stopped because the brothers are gone and the Mexican guys moved in; plus they don't deliver!).

Brutal. Yeti was the best takeout/delivery Indian on the south side of Towson. Kathmandu is still around, however, and if you're looking for pizza, Portofino's is much better than Fortunato's. Time marches on, but Yeti will be missed.

Anyone tried the new place?
The previous Yeti was excellent for takeout Indian/Nepali..
