Lhasa Fresh Food’s menu of momos, noodles, and soups is practically the same as the original in Jackson Heights. Although, there’s slightly more space at Lhasa Fresh Food since it’s not located behind a cell phone store. Get the beef and chive momos, which are as herby as a sampling from your horticulturally-savvy neighbor’s garden, and the thenthuk soup with slow-creeping spicy beef broth and starchy hand-ripped noodles.
