How to Meet a Real Life Sherpa (From Nepal) in America

SUMMARY: No summary available.
By Anne Holland, President

While in San Francisco at our B-to-B Summit last week, I drove up to the Presidio neighborhood for dinner with a real-life Sherpa, Chhring Sherpa, owner of Taste of the Himalayas Restaurant.

Sherpas are a native tribe of Nepal, some of whom earn their living by guiding climbers up Mount Everest. Very few live in the US. Our company name is meant as a tribute to their abilities.

Chhring, who came to the US a decade ago after meeting his wife (a nice girl from New Jersey), has just taken over ownership and management of Taste of the Himalayas restaurant on 2420 Lombard Street. They don't have a Web site (yet) but you can reach them at (415) 674-9898.

The food was great -- very similar to Indian food only with crisper vegetables. We also tasted the famed Sherpa beer, which is milky-white and slightly sweet with a heck of an after-kick.

You know a foreign restaurant is really a good one when actual natives eat there. Taste of the Himalayas is no exception. I spotted at least two other Sherpas. Chhring told me Monday nights are the big Sherpa night -- almost all of the Sherpas in the Bay area gather in the restaurant that night.

So, if you want to meet real live Sherpas en masse, now you know where to go!

I think "MarketingSherpa" is an incredible brand name! Sherpas are indeed the guides who can take you to the highest peaks and plateaus - and that is what we aim to do with our marketing campaigns and conversion rates.
