Dorjee Momo has created a more permanent home for it's Tibetan fare in D.C. with the opening of its residency in Bullfrog Bagels Eastern Market. A former Buddhist monk and Tibetan refugee, Dorjee has lived in Tibet, China, Nepal, and India. He spent years cooking across those countries and creating his own memories of flavors that are so often nostalgic for many. Menu items include thentuk (Tibetan hand-pulled noodle soup), shapta (savory marinated beef with green onion and ginger), Indian-inspired plates like masroor daal and jeera rice, and Nepalese specialties like roasted seasonal vegetables with nimbu achar (sun fermented fragrant lemon). This residency will run through summer 2018 and potentially beyond.
