Tsampa

East Village

Dining at this serene spot is like checking into a Buddhist retreat. The homeland momo (dumplings) are a must: Choose from steamed or fried wheat noodles, then select one of three fillings (chicken with vegetables, shiitake mushrooms with vegetables, or baby potato and scallions). Skip entrées with curries or sauces, like the sherpa khala; there’s often too much oil. The customary end note: roasted, finely ground barley whipped with creamy yogurt and honey, sprinkled

with dried cranberries.
