Why go there?
Because the Tibet, on the gastronomy side, is also worth the headlines at Tsampa, in the heart of Paris's Quartier Latin.
For its zen atmosphere between Buddha, colourful frescos, handcrafts and traditional Tibetan music.
To taste the tsampa, this grilled barley meal typical of Tibet food, here served as soup or dessert.
For the warm welcome of Tenzing and her husband Sossel, two authentic Tibetans who will help you choose among all these unknown specialities.
An admirer of the explorer of Tibet, Alexandra David-Neel.
High-school students for lunch, and couples for dinner.
Rhymthang, a tofu and vegetable soup ; Lougtak, khampa-style sliced lamb sauteed with spices ; and for dessert, Chamdre, a rice and raisin bowl on an island of home-made yoghurt.
A bottle of Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil... unless you prefer to sip an Indian beer.
N°1, 2 or 3, for a romantic dinner along the exposed stone wall.
