A taste of Tibet in downtown Salt Lake City, Cafe Shambala features "Nuage" Tibetan and Japanese cuisine. The restaurant is comfy and colorful, as vibrant as many of the dishes served there. Choices range from Tibetan-style khampa and khatsa to curries and noodles such as she-thuk bhoethuk. Be sure to give the scrumptious beef momos a try. On the Asian side of the menu, options run from chow mein and shrimp with snow peas to tepanyaki dishes such as hibachi Chateaubriand, yakisoba, salmon and tuna. There are plenty of vegetarian-friendly menu items as well, including alu gobi, vegetable momos, cholay, garlic and ginger green beans and teriyaki tofu. For beverages, there are fresh lassi drinks, Tibentan butter tea, sodas and herbal teas. And, at lunchtime -- Monday through Saturday, Shambala features an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet for $8.99.
