Around and about - also at The Bar (Chorlton)
It’s difficult to know what to say about the Tibetan Kitchen as it comes in so many guises. Sonam has been cooking on and off at The Bar in Chorlton for a year or two, in that time he’s also got himself a catering van for festivals and whatnot. His latest visit to The Bar was a £10 buffet sampling numerous of his best dishes – momos (dumplings), steamed bread, sesame chicken, garlic pork – to name a few, served with fresh chilli sauces, vegetables and rice. It’s real food – the sort you could live on not like the generic Chinese takeaways full of MSG and sugar and it’s genuinely is different from Chinese food – or certainly that which we mostly get in Manchester. It’s not fancy or contrived, but good honest food, with a flavour of the far east and a welcome hint of variety. If you see the Tibetan Kitchen sign it's well worth trying.
