Lucky for us New Yorkers, we live in a city where even the most hard-to-find food is only a subway ride away. Now that Zhego exists, that includes Bhutanese cuisine. Your order must include Ema Datsi, the national dish of Bhutan, as well as some cheese-filled momos, and hot, salty butter tea. Fans of the numbing effects of Szechuan peppercorn can try the hand-pulled noodles, which have a pleasantly analgesic effect. The atmosphere is casual and colorful, with a giant green wall juxtaposed with photos of Bhutan. There are only a handful of tables, so come early or be prepared to wait if it’s busy—it’s worth it.
