ShangriLa Tibetan street cart in Jackson Heights

Apologies if there has already been a discussion about this place, but I couldn't find anything with a search...

I have to post about this place! For the past 6 weeks, I have been haunted by the amazing beef momo coming out of the small cart located on the north side of Broadway between 73rd and 74th streets. They are like Chinese soup dumplings, but with beef - very gently spiced, with a nice broth that will dribble all over your shirt if you are not careful when taking a bite. $5 for 8 is a bargain in my book.

They sometimes have shabalay, which is basically a patty of the dumpling filling encased in pastry for a turnover. They sometimes don't have shabalay and you occasionally have to wait a long time for the momo, which is a drag, but I think they are improving this.

They also do rice platters with meat, but I prefer Sammy's across the way for those.

The dumplings, though, are spectacular - even with a 30-minute wait.
