(This venue is closed.) That tingle tells you, if you aren't on top of your East Asian geography, that Tibet borders Sichuan province and that dofu khatse ngoen ma ($5.75) is a Himalayan take on Chinese mapo tofu. (Even at Chinese restaurants the name of the dish can vary. Szechuan Gourmet, which uses an older romanization for the province, gives it a curiously Western-sounding name.) This dofu khatse lacked complexity, but the bean curd was soft and the sauce had a bite; I was glad my sweet lassi ($2.50) was already at hand.
