Café Tibet

Hidden in the alleyway between a bodega and the pretty Cortelyou Q train station—and just across the street from the spiffy new Flatbush Food Coop—Café Tibet is a go-to for takeout. Home to the famous juicy Tibetan soup dumplings called momo ($7.25 for a variety of chicken, beef and vegetable) and the even more addictive sha-baklap (pastry-wrapped beef patties, $7.75 each), Tibet also offers entrées, like an enticingly sour-sweet chili chicken stir-fry ($8.99)—plus a handsome little hidden patio.
