HomeBlogs • Tibet My Top 10 Tibetan Food and Drinks My Top 10 Tibetan Food and Drinks Agness Walewinder June 28, 2012 Traditional Tibetan cuisine is mainly based on dairy products (yak milk and cheese), yak meat and barley. What I have noticed is that vegetables and fruits are scarce in such a high altitude and street drinks and snacks, in contrast to China, are rarely available. You can dine out in restaurants instead enjoying their beautiful Tibetan design. I tried a lot of Tibetan food, including snacks, confectioneries and drinks. Here is my top 10 food and drinks Tibet offers: 1. Momos with hot chocolate Momos are traditional dumplings (very similar to Chinese jiaozi or baozi) filled with meat or vegetables. You can get them fried or boiled depending on your preferences. They are served with oil and pepper sauce, yummy! The best drink for momos is hot chocolate. The one I had was very nice, milky and sweet. Another way,When most people talk about momo, they're referring to sha momo, a juicy beef variety that's seasoned with garlic, onion, ginger, soy sauce, Sichuan peppercorn, and sometimes Chinese celery. (Sha momo literally translates to "meat dumpling." Back home in Tibet, that meat is often yak; abroad, sha momo are typically made with beef.) With their pleated tops and juicy innards, sha momo eat like Tibetan xiao long bao. link to homepage open it
