Yarlung Kitchen: Run down but great food!
My guide recommended this place. He said he eats here every time he visits Tsedang. It was a good choice. Although I had my doubts because the place is in serious need of some sprucing up with a fresh coat of paint and more accommodating tables. The wait staff are young and eager to try out there English every chance they can.
I ate here for lunch and dinner. For lunch, I had the potato and peppers. It was really good. The perfect size for lunch and tasted great. For dinner I wanted the potato Momo with some hot sauce on the side. When it came out, I was surprised that it was fried. There was no dough like a traditional Momo. It was more like fried mashed potato with a little pork inside. They were actually very good. I would order this again.

No idea about the name: A restaurant which I’d like to remember
After our visits to Yungbulakang and Tradruk, we returned to Tsedang and had a lunch in this restaurant. It was right across the hotel we stayed, Tsedang Hotel. Now I’ve searched it from the Google maps but I could not find the exact name I was looking for. Here the clues I remember: It was on the same wide street with Tsedang Hotel. We entered to the restaurant from a side road. It was on the second floor of a building and the building could be a hotel. My closest guess is it was the restaurant of Yulong Holiday Hotel.
I really wanted to remember this one because it was the most delicious meal of the whole trip. I wasn’t acquainted with Chinese cuisine before this trip. Every single bite has been an adventure to me. Here, I had the greatest entry to Chinese food. I am not very fond of soups; even our cuisine has lots of them. I drank a mushroom and noodle soup here which I couldn’t forget. I think it also has seaweeds in it. I cannot remember all the meal we had that day but I remember a sizzling and sauced meat with onions. There was some tofu which I just tried a bit and passed. Waiters kept filling our cups with green tea all the time. This lunch was the peak point and I’d love to dine here again.
Favorite Dish: Soup, noodle, a sizzling meat dish... Yummy!

Tsedang Hotel: Our first experience of Tibetan food
The dinner was served Chinese style, with all the dishes being placed on a huge Lazy Susan in the middle of the table.
The dishes were as follows:
Slivers of pigs trotters (quite slimy and chewy)
Yak stew (like a lamb stew)
Pork with pumpkin
Dreid yak (tasted like a cross between lamb and beef)
Fish balls (quite nice, not too fishy)
Sweet and sour yak (very nice, quite sweet)
Cauliflower and broccoli with ginger (quite crunchy)
Sea weed soup
