Recommended Restaurant

Labrang Monastery Restaurant (Labulangsi fandian)
The best in town has to be the Labrang Monastery Restaurant (Labulangsi fandian), a little to the east of the monastery entrance and west of the Tara Guesthouse. The inside of the restaurant has a saloon feel, mostly wood with Tibetan pictures on the walls and a friendly atmosphere. The grassy backyard behind is good in the summer, when circling buzzards eye your food and are constant reminders of the sky burials up in the hills. The food here, from an English and Chinese menu, is also great, including some nice yoghurt that can be de-soured by the addition of delicious, locally made honey.
