Tibet is a "high" place where few plants grow and the people depend on barley (the country’s staple food), yak, goat and sheep meats as well as the potato. Animal protein is often eaten dried in a spicy soup for example, promising a tasty heat. The momo, a typical dish, is a stuffed ravioli that is steamed or fried. It is served in a spicy sauce made from chili peppers. They are often served in groups of 8 as its name denotes that number in the Tibetan language. The simple desserts, most of them served with rice, make for a simple yet hearty gastronomy. Let alce.ca charm you with this little-known cuisine!
