A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

If I asked any of my friends if they wanted to go out for Tibetan food, I’m pretty sure they’d look at me like I was crazy-they’d say “we’re daring…not that daring!” Me, I’ve been here twice and love it!

As I have stated before, I love Chronicle. I saw this place featured on it one day and decided to try it out. Chronicle said to try the dumplings and  the stinky tofu. One out of two isn’t bad. I generally don’t like to eat foods with the word ‘stinky’ attached to them.

Wikipedia says, “Tashi means auspicious and Delek (or Deleg, Deleh) means fine or well. It is difficult and perhaps impossible to translate properly into English. Different authors render it as “Blessings and good luck” or “May all auspicious signs come to this environment”.

This time we did take out, last time I dined in. The restaurant is small but cozy. The service is excellent and the food is filling! The dumplings: You can get an appetizer of 4 ($6.50) or a meal of 8 ($15). You can get one of 4 varieties, but your best best is the sampler (2 of each kind) for $17. The dumplings have a lot of dough but the insides are deliciously flavorful. I like the sha mo mo the best, the meat filled dumplings  with garlic, onions and cabbage. Think pan fried raviolis without all the heavy grease. We also got the chicken fried rice. The rice is nicely spiced with pepper to give it a little kick. The chicken was a little bit on the dry side, but it was still delicious. We also got the shey thuk ngol pa (pan fried noodles with soup and salad for $15-not pictured). Think chicken lo-mein without all the grease. It came with a good helping of salad and miso soup. I highly recommend checking this place out if you’re in the mood for something new! They have a lunch buffet that is priced right at $7.95-I’ll save that for next time.
