rangzen tibetan restaurant

  • delivery to local addresses [sadly, does not include long island]
we began with thunlam tosoe-a mixed appetizer platter including the best creation ever: tsel numtak. "shredded mixed vegetables with ginger, garlic, and cilantro dipped in chickpea batter and fried" it is more amazing than it sounds and there was nary a scrap to take a picture of. i hoarked that down like there was no tomorrow. regardless of the fact that im pretty positive one of the shredded vegetables was some type of green onion. that is how amazing they were.

for the main course i chose a langsha chow minus the red onion. and it was just slightly greasy but oh so flavorful. sadly, after stuffing down all the appetizers i could barely eat 1/3 of my dish.

dipping sauce for the apps. and to quote the waiter, "the green one is hot..." it was pretty tasty but when mixed with the sweet red sauce, a fried tasty can be delicately dipped and then crammed in the eagerly awaiting maw.

jason had either the langsha momo or the chhasaha momo. both are handmade dumplings but are beef and chicken respectively. i tried the "small bowl of lentil soup" which was frikkin amazing. it was blended smooth and was a nearly sweet compliment to the savory dumplings and salty soy dipping sauce.

i ate my leftovers while waiting for the ferry. they still had the slight smokey/grill taste that lingered in the restaurant, and the veges were still aldente crisp. since it was about 20 degrees this little take out guy sat in my car overnight and left a wonderful but not overpowering scent.
