If you’re looking for a spot to sit down for a few minutes and have a light meal while you read a book or text a few people you’ve been ignoring for several weeks, go to Potala. It’s a counter-service place with a short menu of things like momos, soup, and laphing (chewy mung bean noodles). The momos are made to order in the tiny kitchen in the back, and we especially like the beef ones. Get an order of those and some butter tea, and claim one of the stools along the wall.
