  • Nirvana restaurant & bar: A real gem!

    by traveler2013 Written Nov 14, 2013

    Nirvana restaurant is by far the best and most beautiful restaurant in Xiahe. They serve Tibetan, Chinese and Western food, all of excellent quality. The owners are a local Tibetan man and his Dutch wife. Because of their hospitality, Nirvana is a good place to relax and have a meal or just a casual drink. They really take time for their customers, and provide all the tourist information you can dream of. Their bar is stocked with a large supply of liqueurs and spirits, not to be found in any other restaurant in Xiahe. Their coffee is excellent. I have to say, I was realy impressed with this place!

    Favorite Dish: My favorite dish was the shuizhu roupian, a Chinese dish consisting of veggies, noodles and pork slices in a spicy soup.Wonderful!

    We visited Gesar Restaurant which is located just off the main street and overlooks a wall of Labrang Monastery. Like all restaurants in the area it is a simple affair with traditional Tibetan tables (low carved wooden) and colourful wallpaper.

    The menu was quite extensive and included traditional Tibetan food, Chinese food and limited western food.

    I tried the momos (like dumplings - pastry and meat or vegetables) which you could get fried or steamed. They are fantastic and very filling. They are also usually cheaper than a main meal so if you're low on cash and hungry then these are a perfect option.

    Tibetan breakfast: Tibetan breakfast

    by l_joo Written Apr 3, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Picture is my Tibetan breakfast, two items cost around 15 yuan which is quite expensive for a breakfast in China, but its okay, I just want to try how the Tibetans' foods. From my observation, the Tibetans seemed lack of competitive skills to run a restaurant comparing with Han Chinese, they make a breakfast this simple, took nearly 20 minutes and it cost that much. But I like the interior of their restaurant, so colorful. What you see in photo is a glass of tea and a bowl of Tibetan Tsampa, dough made with roasted barley flour and yak butter. This bowl cost about 2 plate of chowmeins but it can only fill up quarter my stomach. Taste are quite nice tough.

    In the Snowland restaurant, just across the road in the direction of the monastery from our hotel, they have an english menu. They serve chinese, tibetan and western food.
    The special thing about the restaurant is we always saw some monks in there. Must be good when even the monks come here.
