Tsampa Restaurant Review:

Among the few Tibetan restaurants in New York, Tsampa stands out as much for its soothing atmosphere as for the innovative, healthy cuisine that borrows from neighboring India, China, Nepal, Bhutan and Japan. Most ingredients are organic, and with choices like tender chicken curry in tangy yogurt-and-onion sauce and grilled whole trout with crispy, gingered skin, you’ll hardly notice that red meat is missing from the menu. Some of the most popular starters include shiitake pancakes pan-fried with scallions, garlic and ginger served with apple-walnut sauce, the phing alla hand-rolled Tibetan crêpe filled with bean threads, vegetables and shiitake mushrooms, and the squash-corn soup. Warm up with a pot of Tibetan tea --- either nutty barley or traditional bocha --- made with butter and salt.
