Berkeley: Nomad Tibetan Restaurant; restaurant review

80 North

interior of Nomad Tibetan Restaurant in Berkeley, CaliforniaNomad Tibetan Restaurant  1593 Solano Ave./Tacoma Ave., (510) 984-0738.  L W-Sun, D daily. 

Featuring a woodsy decor, with hand-crafted wood tables and art by a local Tibetan artist, this comfortable spot provides a restive retreat.  A good way to start a meal is with the juicy beef momo dumplings, which are very much like pot stickers, and particularly tasty with the house sauce.   Among the many vegetarian items is duluma, a slice of eggplant topped with an assortment of other vegetables in a tasty sauce.  Traditionally, ting-mo—hand-
rolled Tibetan steam buns that look like big yellow flowers--are used to sop up the sauce.  Among the many more dishes I want to try are Shambala curry and ngo-thuk (stir-fried noodles with beef and vegetables).  You can enhance your meal with salty Tibetan butter tea or sweet ginger tea.
