shangri-la tibetan street cart - jackson heights

bigjeff | Oct 28, 2007 05:20 PM

saw a new cart today in jackson heights (near sammy's and the corner of roosevelt, broadway and 73rd st) and the two guys manning the cart said they've been there a week, although there was a post on midtown lunch (http://midtownlunch.com/blog/2007/10/...) searching for them; maybe they moved from midtown to queens.

anyway, they serve these fried empanada looking things, and steamed and fried momos (beef dumplings), 8 for $5 plus chicken or beef over rice or pita (halal-style). momos were aight, but, the hot sauce was phenonemenal; tasted vaguely herbal, ginger-y, lots of flavor. a bit expensive at $5 and I didn't try the beef or chicken (esp. since sammy's is right nearby) but, that hot sauce is great; wonder if they would sell it to you? the meat on the griddle didn't look like it was moving or had good turnover.

anyone else try this?
