First Yak Meat

We eat at a Muslim restaurant in Langmusi and I have my first yak meat, a yak burrito. The following day, I have sliced yak on a bowl of noodles and soup. I like the sliced yak; it tastes like buffalo: lean, chewy and somewhat gamey. At breakfast, I have yak yoghurt (actually it’s from the female of the yak) which is extremely tart and has some chunks in it like semi-soft cheese. It tastes better with honey. We also eat momos which are steamed dumplings filled with ground yak meat. Some of them are tastier than others. The less tasty ones have lumps of fat and gristle.
