Shangrila's worldly chefs inject colorful cuisine with traditional Tibetan ingredients, with tongue-tingling ginger and health-boosting garlic leading flavor armies from plate to mouth. Scoop the savory mélange of spiced lamb, onions, celery, and ginger from the center of the amdo momo appetizer—framed by a steamed or pan-fried bun—to acquire easy storage for an annoying blind date. Or launch a friendlier feast with the thin slices of tibetan cold beef, which chills teeth to prepare them for subsequent dips in fiery homemade sauce and spices. Vegetable enthusiasts can compose madrigals to honor tibetan spicy bean tofu, and carnivorous eaters can partake of lamb ribs, first steamed and then showered in cumin, spices, and constructive criticism during a proper roast. Nariwal shrimp discusses the merits of exoskeletons with vegetables as they simmer in a creamy bath of coconut milk and spice, giving eavesdropping patrons something to ponder before they depart Shangrila's citrus-hued dining room to resume building a bodysuit out of popsicle sticks.
Spicy traditional sauces and exotic ingredients such as yak meat accent the authentic dishes on the Tibetan menu at Shangrila Bistro. According to AccessAtlanta, Shangrila's owners fly the yak meat—which tastes "like beef but generally leaner"—directly from China, and they also use it for the yak's-milk butter needed to brew the Tibetan butter tea on their beverage menu. A separate Chinese menu stakes a competing claim on eaters' attention with inventive dishes such as hot and spicy tangerine beef and pineapple-seafood fried rice.
