Home to four momo-slinging kitchens at last count, the East Village may well be New York's Little -- make that tiny -- Tibet. This particular source of savory dumplings, flavorful noodle soups, dense steamed buns, and a handful of Japanese recipes the chef picked up during a stint at Honmura An is owned by the extended family behind Himalayan Vision, a clothing-and-gifts shop two doors down. The stylish design (bamboo dropped ceiling, concrete-and-wood floor) and appealing menu reveal that a good eye and a discerning palate run in the family. So, we presume, does the secret behind that killer hot sauce.
