The original Lhasa in Jackson Heights is one of our favorite places in the city to eat momos, specifically of the beef and chive variety. So if you live anywhere near Lower Manhattan, consider Lhasa’s new East Village location a gift. Like the Jackson Heights spot, Lhasa on 1st Avenue and 11th Street serves a menu of excellent round dumplings with both meat and vegetable fillings. You’ll also find some noodle dishes and thenthuk (a hearty soup with a light brown broth and tons of beef and hand-ripped noodles). It’s understandably difficult to choose between momos here, so make it easy on yourself and get one of Lhasa’s combos. We particularly like the non-veg combo, which comes with eight lightly-crispy dumplings filled respectively with chicken, beef, and beef and chive. Stop by Lhasa for takeout and covered outdoor dining for lunch and dinner any day except Tuesday.
