The Fueled Collective, located in New York SoHo business district, is an area of 18000 square feet of luxurious office space. The Collective was founded by Rameet Chawla and Ryan Matzner as a new business to foster a collaboration among startups by offering a communal workspace.

Holding 130 people, the Fueled Collective has invited 20 of the most interesting startups. As soon as you enter the space, you feel yourself refreshed. It is so crazy that the Collective has a snack wall inside, full of candy, drinks, pies, etc. You do not have to be chained to your desk to get your work done, but you also don’t have to have a meeting at the traditional council table, because there’re comfortable couches and long chairs all over. Actually, it is often regarded as the coolest office in NYC.

What you need to know when you plan on visiting Tibet pt.2 read more

This week, we wrap up on what else you need to know when you plan on visiting Tibet!
 

Food and Drinks

The traditional Tibetan diet is mostly limited to barley, meat (mutton or yak) and dairy products, with very few spices or vegetables, although brutally hot chili sauce is often served on the side. Even good Tibetan food is very monotonous with most Tibetan restaurants serving nothing other than thukpa (noodle soup) and tea. Unfortunately there is not a single genuine high standard Tibetan restaurant in Tibet. One would have to go to neighbouring provinces such as Sichuan for such type of restaurant. All Tibetan restaurants in Lhasa featured in guidebooks and frequented by non-Chinese tourists are westernized ones serving a few Tibetan dishes along with pizzas, spaghetti, pancakes, etc.

 

Traditional plates:

Momos - dumplings filled with meat or vegetables, steamed or fried

Tingmo - bland, nearly tasteless steamed bread

Thukpa - a hearty noodle soup with veggies or meat

Thenthuk -
