Tibetan food is one of my favorite cuisines ever. With its light broths, steamed bread, and a variety of other steamed dishes it is the perfect comfort food that you would seek out on cold day. But Tibetan cuisine also encompasses a range of dishes that pack a spice (curry, most prominently) to re-energize you any day of the year. Tibetan food represents the best of both worlds.
There is a Tibet Cafe not far from where I live in Brooklyn but it didn’t evoke in me the same cozy feelings as Phayul did on my first visit there. Getting to Phayul is an experience in of and itself.
