    1. re: squid kun

      I've had excellent Bhutanese at Lali Guras iin Jackson heights, but to be honest, I don't know the names of the dishes, since I've always gotten thali style meals. goat seems to be a specialty, chicken preps have been so-so.

    2. Gakyizompe is a Tibetan place which serves three variations of the one Bhutanese dish, which is their national dish ema datse (although they spell it differently). Their menu has a few Nepalese thali plates and otherwise is mainly Tibetan. The name means "happy gathering." It's good though, will write it up soon.
