Some Tibetan restaurants have English menus. That is, they use some English words, though not particlulary in any order that makes sense. For example we saw the “Nourishing Chicken”, the “Tomato Fish”, “A Rice Line of Sand” and the “Return to a Pot of Meat” being offered in Nyalam.
But this little restaurant in Taschi Dzom had some items we could actually understand, and one of them was chicken soup, which seemed nice to us. We ordered it together with some really tasty noodles and veggies and saw the owner of the place head out the door instead of to the kitchen.
Why, became aparent when he returned with a chicken, which we recognized from the little cage across the street. At least it was going to be fresh!
We had almost forgotten about the soup as we had already finished the rest a long time ago and were drinking jasmine tea while watching Chinese state TV.
But then a huge bowl appeared filled with soup. It was not a really clear soup and only while we were serving ourselves we noticed that it did not only have the usual chicken parts in it, but actually the entire chicken was there in bits and pieces as you can see. Milan is eating the leg – and when I say leg, I mean leg- and Thomas has just found another interesting bit on his spoon, which I thought deserved a picture..
