28 years down the line, ‘The Tibetan Kitchen’ is focusing mainly on consistency of the food, the age old flavours take me back to my yester years as a kid, where I precisely remember these flavours which are still the same. As a child who loved food, this little restaurant back then was one of my favourite Sunday dinner joints, on the way back home from the beach. Located at the end of a tiny little lane , near the Calangute beach, today the restaurant has extended their menu, serving not only delicacies from Tibet, but Thai, continental & Indian too!!
Avocado stuffed Prawns – Freshly broken salad greens, tossed together with tropical fresh fruits & slices of avocado, topped with stir fried prawns & accompanied with traditional Tibetan home-made ‘Amdo’ bread.
Fried Momo’s – My all-time favourite that has been pulling me back here for over 23 years!! The beef momo’s. Moist & succulent, just the way they should be.
Steamed Momo’s – Steamed dumplings, stuffed with your choice of filling of either beef, chicken or veggies. Juicy to the core!!
Prawn mushroom garlic – White prawns tossed with garlic & mushrooms, served on a bed of fresh salad. Yum.
Chetse – A signature Tibetan flat noodle tossed with butter, with mixed vegetables & mushrooms. Topped with a tomato based sauce, & if you like, can be done with beef or chicken too!!
Kuchow style prawns – From the Thai selection comes ‘Kuchow style prawns’. Basically batter fried prawns, tossed in a tomato based sauce, topped with crisp fried spinach.
Chef’s special Chicken – Another dish from the Thai section. Boneless chicken cubes, marinated & grilled on skewers, topped with a garlic tomato & spring onion sauce.
Calamari from the Deep!! – Portion of fried calamari, served with home-made fries, served with house salad & crispy spinach.
Veg. Korean Noodles – Rice noodles, tossed with an array of veggies, with a hint of turmeric & seasoning.
Tibetan butter tea – Special Tibetan milk tea, made with butter & salt. Now that’s something different..
