  1. Rangzen Tibetan Place is my favorite restaurant in the Boston area. It’s located at 24 Pearl Street in Cambridge’s Central Square, less than less a block from Massachusetts Avenue. It’s open Monday through Saturday, and closed on Sunday. The restaurant has a daily lunch buffet from 11:30am-3:00pm. The buffet usually has 9 hot dishes with both meat and vegetarian entrees, 2 soups, 2 teas, 1 or 2 breads, fruits, salads, and pickles. The selection rotates regularly. Some of the items may include vegetable momos (dumplings), Brussel sprouts, cabbage slaw, squash, beef broth, kale and escarole salad, green beans and chicken, potatoes, noodles, rice, broccoli, apple slices with mango sauce, chicken with mushroom, chicken teriyaki, eggplant, chicken wings, curry chicken, beef, several types of bread, pickled vegetables, sautéed greens, tofu, chickpeas, milk tea, green tea. Some of my favorite accompaniments: green cilantro/jalapeno sauce and the tomato chutney. Dinner hours are from 5:30pm to 10:00pm. Friendly and attentive staff — water glasses are promptly refilled and dirty dishes cleared away immediately. The place is great at accommodating vegans and meat-lovers, and everyone in between. Serene and calming ambience — dark wood floors and furniture, an intimate space with a large picture of a mountain on one wall. Clean restaurant, clean bathrooms. Owners are very kind, gracious people.

  2. What a wonderful article – – thank you for including Veggie Galaxy and for the great write-up. We love our BU student guests and have had BU staff members over the years too. Just wanted to jump on here to let you know that we no longer have a gluten-free menu here. Would hate to see someone trek over here from campus expecting to find a gf menu and be disappointed. Thanks for allowing this small correction.
