I wanted to like a place called Tibetan Kitchen. When I entered the empty restaurant during lunch time, I pointed to where I wanted to sit near the window. Somehow the waitress led me to another table. I ordered the Beef Pan Fried Sha Momos (Tibetan dumplings) and waited quite a while for them. Maybe 30mins?  I got pretty impatient staring at the big hanging photo of the Dalai Lama that whole time. The one guy who came in after me was half-way through his meal by the time my food came out.

So what’s the difference between these momos and Chinese potstickers? I don’t know. These momos were really juicy. They’d squirt when you eat them. I ended up putting soy sauce on them. So I wondered more what the difference was. Oh these are $10.95 (So about $14.50 after tax and tip) for 8 dumplings. That’s the last time I’ll bitch about Rickshaw Dumpling prices.

I really do want to like Tibetan Kitchen. They have a lot of good reviews on Menupages and Yelp. There’s a few online mentions that the Dalai Lama’s food is prepared in their kitchen when he visits New York. That must be why his photo was staring down at me and I was staring back during that 30min wait. I hate writing about mediocre experiences, but the Momo photos look good.

    I am straight up obsessed with Tibetan food and have been meaning to try this place out, but maybe I’ll move it to the bottom of the list now. Have you tried Cafe Tibet in Brooklyn?

    I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both
    equally educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the
    head. The problem is an issue that not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy I came across this in my hunt for something relating to this.
