Tibet Restaurant Reviews
It's fair to say that no one travels to Tibet for its food. Because of its altitude and remoteness, traditional food consists mainly of barley with the odd serving of meat, vegetables, and dairy products. Tsampa is Tibet's staple food, which is barley flour mixed with salted butter tea. Lhasa has Tibet's best dining options, so make the most of the competitive market of hybrid restaurants that serve Chinese, Indian, Nepali, Tibetan, and Western fare. Most have sprung up from backpacker haunts serving perennially favorite dishes, from banana pancakes to yak burgers to chicken masala.
