This restaurant’s Tibetan owner, Tenzin, hails from Ladakh in northern India, where the movie “3 Idiots” was filmed. He has enjoyed studying Tibetan and Indian cooking since a young age and the menu here contains reasonably-priced dishes with these exotic influences and flavors. A special item is MoMo (10 steamed dumplings) stuffed with either pork (NT$120) or beef (NT$140) with a juiciness and unique flavor best enjoyed with a spicy sauce. Tsampa, made with barley flour, is a Tibetan staple and goes well with a cup of sweet, aromatic Masala Tea or Tibetan Butter Tea. Chewy, fragrant naan bread (NT$50-70) is available in butter, garlic and cheese flavors, with the latter prepared with rich cheese and tasting like baked pizza dough. An excellent Palak Chicken comes with a hearty portion of spinach and curry sauce, while the classic Chicken Tikka is made with many seasonings and onions and complements yogurt nicely.
