Just around the corner from Technology Building MRT is bright and open restaurant that serves delicacies from the Himalayas, a welcome change of flavor from the usual Taiwanese cuisine around Taipei. Tibet Kitchen in Da’an District serves more than just Tibetan food, it dedicates half its menu to Indian cuisine as well. You can choose from a variety of dishes, including chili chicken, vindaloo, and tandoori from the Indian section, or beef thukpa with dangtsen (a beef noodle soup with vegetables) and Tibetan milk tea.
The comfortable atmosphere is great for an intimate dining experience or for a fun dinner with a larger group while traditional Tibetan music plays on the TV.
You can choose to pair your meal with some Indian naan or Tibetan Noomsa Bhalek (fried bread), for NT$40 each. You may want to request a small dish of spicy sauce to dip it in as the dishes aren’t particularly spicy.
Tibet Kitchen has an English menu but does not accept credit cards.
