What’s a guy got to do to get some salty yak butter tea around here?

The Washington, DC area is by far the most cosmopolitan and international place I have lived (even more than Rensselaer, NY) but I have a problem with it. Where are the Tibetan restaurants in the area? Now and then a fella gets a serious hankering for some tsampa and yak butter tea. As good as it is, 7-11 just doesn’t cut it. Can anyone recommend a Tibetan restaurant in the area? I haven’t been able to find one but I am sure there is one here.

Somebody had recommended Mt. Everest over on 18th St. NW but it is now closed, from what I can tell.

What is your favorite place to get delicious Tibetan delights?

    I know it isn’t Tibetan, I know, but there used to be a very good Nepalese restaurant on 18th Street called Mt. Everest…they sold rancid yak butter. I say “used to be” because it’s been gone for almost a year now. A Korean place has taken over the spot.

    Anyway, sorry for the derailment here. I guess I don’t really know any Tibetan places, but would love to try one if anyone else has recommendations.
