Anthony Bourdain made this Tibetan Restaurant famous in New York
LHASA FAST FOOD is one of the many Tibetan restaurants in Jackson Heights, New York.
One day, the late Celebrity Chef and TV host Anthony Bourdain showed up here to have Thenthuk and Momo, for an episode of his show Parts Unknown that explored Queens’ hidden culinary gems.
Getting featured in this popular CNN TV show changed the fate of the LHASA FAST FOOD, which is 7 years old today.
“I am ever grateful to him for the significant rise in the number of customers, especially injis, in my restaurant following the TV show,” says the owner Lobsang Jayang in the new VOA TV show, Tibetan American Life.
After the success of his first restaurant, he opened another, and now planning to start the third one. Former monk Lobsang was born in Tibet, escaped to India and moved to US.
