The new restaurant is owned by Maya Gurung-Subba, who was chef at Nepali Kitchen, and her husband, Suk Subba. Their Asian-fusion menu includes cuisine from China, India, Nepal, Thailand and Vietnam, the couple said. Among the dishes offered at Maya's Kitchen are Vietnamese flat noodles, saag paneer from India, and momo chili and chicken wings from the Kathmandu Valley of Nepal.
Gurung-Subba is a graduate of the Community Kitchen Academy, a program of the Vermont Foodbank. Subba, who has worked as a prep cook, will run the front of the house.
Both spouses were born in Bhutan and grew up in Nepal in refugee camps. At their restaurant, they plan to serve the food they learned to cook from their parents and grandparents, Subba said.
The couple met in 2010 in this country, and Subba moved from Massachusetts to Vermont when they got married. "I like this place so much," Subba said of Burlington. "It reminds me of the place where I grew up — especially the topography."
