A piece of Tibet in Koramangala

The waiter opens the door for me with a warm smile. It is a breezy rooftop restaurant at the four floored Tibet Mall. Though the ambience is simple, Hotel Tibet serves some of the most popular and authentic Tibetan cuisine.

Though this restaurant serves continental and Indian cuisine too, Tibetan cuisine is definitely the first choice. Tingmo is the Tibetan soft bread rolled and baked with orange colour on the sides. This is the bread that is used by Tibetans regularly.

What stands apart is the Silky Noodles with vegetables soup, also called Thenthuk. The silky noodles are prepared from rice flour. Just the name suggests, it is actually very silky. I struggled my way to get hold of it in my fork. Wood ear mushroom along with boiled vegetables, makes up the rest of the ingredients. Tastes heavenly.

Spicy mustard chicken is another dish that you shouldn’t miss out on. With a generous amount of capsicum and onions, the diced chicken cubes in mustard sauce were delicious, accompanied by chicken Chowmein.

And finally, the Tibetan Butter salted tea, known as po cha, arrived . If you are a butter lover, you surely must not miss out on this.

Apart from the regular Indian and continental food, if you want to savour the taste of authentic Tibetan cuisine, Hotel Tibet is just the place to be.
