2012_10_Phayul.jpgFor her Hungry City Review this week, Ligaya Mishan files on Tibetan restaurant Phayul in Jackson Heights. The menu at this second-level hole-in-the-wall is influenced by neighboring regions like Kham and Amdo rather than India, and the product is a selection of items that Mishan calls "livelier and more rugged." She warns: "Those expecting Tibetan food to be all mildness and calm may be shocked when a slow paralysis takes hold of the tongue." [NYT]
