Little Tibet is a dine-in Tibetan restaurant by the same owners of Momo Cafe & Zomsa Bar. Unlike its sister restaurant, they have a wider selection of traditional Tibetan food, including Thukpa (Tibetan noodle soups), Chowmein, and Tibetan Momos (stuffed dumplings, which you can read more about here). They even have Traditional Tibetan Butter Tea known as Po Cha. This drink has a soup-like texture and a salty taste, which is an acquired taste for those who are not accustomed to it.

If you are not familiar with Asian dining, usually the plates served are meant to be shared with everyone at the table. That is no different with Little Tibet. You can order different seafood, beef, pork or chicken platters to share. Also, if you are a vegetarian, they have a decent amount of vegetable dishes served with rice. This is the perfect place for anyone looking to try more Tibetan delicacies. 

Can't dine in? You can order online, get delivery or take-out! They also cater and do birthday party bookings.

Momo Cafe & Zomsa Bar is a Tibetan takeout place in the heart of Little Tibet and Parkdale. This is where you would go to get your fix if you would like something cheap and yummy! Not to mention, Tibetan food is it's own unique palate in the world of Asian cuisine.

The restaurant specializes in Tibetan momos. What are momos? Momos are stuffed dumplings that are a traditional delicacy in Tibet and Nepal. You can find a variety of different momos at Momo Cafe & Zomsa Bar. You can get their vegetarian and meat-filled momos pan-fried, steamed or fried. If you decide on their fusion with sauces, it varies from Butter Chicken to Sweet and Sour. What if you are not in the mood for momos? Then they have a variety of combo meals that will fill you right up! The restaurant is more of a takeout place, however there are seating inside and plenty of patio seating during the warmer months.

They also do charitable work such as providing free lunch to the homeless and hospital workers within their community. If you are looking to try Tibetan food in Parkdale and love to support businesses that give back, take a look at Momo Cafe & Zomsa Bar!

Chrisopigi EVOO by Gaia Fine Foods

If you are looking for a new extra virgin olive oil brand, look no further. Chrisopigi (pronounced kri-so-pee-yee) EVOO exclusively imported by Gaia Fine Foods is a global multi-award winning olive oil recognized as Best in Class and Gold Awards at the most prestigious international competition in New York. Chrisopigi EVOO is tested annually to maintain its' superior quality and heating stability, which allows for deep-frying.  

You can use EVOO for many things, such as to dip bread with, drizzled onto salad, or my personal favourite, to fry eggs with. I love that the Chrisopigi EVOO is smooth and doesn't leave any sort of after-taste. The fact that it has been European Union regulated and Health Claim Certified, has me trust that it is one of the best EVOOs out there! The olives used to make the Chrisopigi EVOO are hand-picked from their olive orchards on the island of Crete, Greece. And if you didn't know already, Greek olive oils rank top in the world!
