A. In this colorfully decorated restaurant are some truly authentic Tibetan dishes.
B. The pastry used in Tibetan Deep Fried Pastry (NT$60, 3 pieces) is filled with beef, onions and herbs then dee-fried and served with an aromatic sauce of cumin, onions and garlic. For a lighter flavor try the Tibetan Cheese Momo (NT$120). Tibetan cheese and vegetables are wrapped in a thin pastry then steamed. This is one dish you won't find anywhere else and it's sure to be gone in seconds.
C. They also offer a NT$268 meal set including a choice of a main course (for example, Tibetan Mutton Blue Cheese), a soup (Tibetan Barley Soup or Tomato Soup), salad, a starch dish (Tsampa, baked bread or Tibetan fried bread made from hulless barley flour), dessert (Deysi, a sweet rice dish, or Changkoe, a sweet rice soup), and a beverage (Tibetan Milk Tea or Indian Milk Tea). The mutton in Tibetan Mutton Blue Cheese is cooked with pepper, blue cheese, onions and salt until it's tender. This is a very authentic Tibetan home cooking. Dip a piece of Tsampa or fried bread into the rich cheese sauce for a flavor you will never forget.
