Makye Ame (Mǎjí āmǐ)

Makye Ame (Mǎjí āmǐ) Review

As much a cultural experience as a gastronomical adventure, Makye Ame is known for its Tibetan and Indian song-and-dance performances. The shows are enjoyable, but hard on the eardrums. For a quieter meal, ask for one of the rooms in the back or in the cozy teahouse upstairs. Food-wise, Makye Ame serves a large variety of Tibetan dishes, including stone-cooked yak, malai kafta (large potato and cashew balls in a curried yogurt sauce), and an incomparable platter of xianggu (shiitake mushrooms). A cold Lhasa beer or some homemade yogurt wine rounds out one of the city's more memorable meals.
