It's a bit hard to find Phayul ("Fatherland") in Jackson Heighs, but once you reach this devoutly Buddhist restaurant (a Dalai Lama shrine is the principal décor), you'll find yourself in culinary bliss. The Tibetan fare skews toward the Sichuanese (no kidding!), apparently since that province hosts many Himalayan expats. As a result, choices like tongue salad, braised bean curd, and chicken with bean curd are littered with Sichuan peppercorns, and all the better for it. But neither are Tibetan standards neglected, including luscious momos (big meat-or vegetable-stuffed dumplings), thenthuk (a pallid soup with wonderful ragged noodles), and gyuma (a homemade blood sausage). And don't miss the mung-bean jelly called laphing.
