A restaurant with glossy menus featuring page after page of professional photos can often be misleading, as the actual dish usually bears little resemblance. Refreshingly, in the case of this charming Tibetan mainstay, what you see is what you get—and that is good news indeed. Case in point? A wide platter of fried lamb ribs, simply seasoned with salt and pepper, stacked upon each another, and tossed with sautéed peppers. Fried momos may feature a range of fillings, but go with the beef paired with pickled vegetables for a greaseless, yet crispy treat.
Fiery chili sauces found on every table promise to crank up the heat and spice. However, comforting staples like Phayul noodle soup or stir-fried beef with laphing are plenty seasoned and amply delicious.
