Best of Philly

2020 Restaurant We Didn’t Know We Needed

White Yak

If you’ve never had Tibetan food, you don’t realize how much you need Tibetan food. Thankfully, White Yak was there for Philly with its comforting wood-paneled dining room, bowls of soft momo swimming in beef broth, tsamthuk roasted barley soup, bacon stir-fried with green garlic, and shoko khatsa — which is basically just potatoes stir-fried with chili powder, for a perfect kick of starch and spice.
