  1. Great little place serving Tibetan comfort food. Yum.

    1. I have never had a bad meal there. It has more spicy dishes than other Tibetan restaurants in the area (like Rangzen). Was a great place to take my vegan sister-in-law (they were able to adapt certain dishes). Highly recommended.

      1. That would be Martsa's. Sorry, I'm the spelling demon! I love the momos.

          Never been yet, which is a crime.

          There is no apostrophe s -

        2. Martsa on Elm doesn't do traditional Tibetan food, but Tibetan-in-exile-in-India cuisine, so it's much more Indian-leaning that other Tibetan places in town. I really enjoy it; many dishes are far spicier and more complex than most traditional Tibetan fare. I'm especially fond of their shamday, beef in a kind of yellow curry with lots of onions.

          1. had a few good meals at martsa on elm but prefer house of tibet kitchen in teele square. homey tibetan comfort food in a soothing environment. love their shogo labtak (potato cutlets), tena thukpa (mixed lentil soup), momos, and shoko khatsa (curried potatoes with ginger)
