Steamed, Fried, Schezwan And A Burger Version: Our Favourite Momos In Town

Try as much as we may, it’s hard to ignore the lure of this hot, steamy, delectable dish. And we’re not sure what you’re thinking – but we’re talking about momos. Rain or shine, we can never seem to turn down the idea of tucking into these soft, gooey dumplings in their veggie or meaty avatar. Pair that with a bit of chilli sauce, and we’re spicing things up too! So we’re suggesting you do so as well. And from a city teeming with options to choose from, we’ve picked out some of the best places to get your momo fix.

We know that our neighbourhood momo vendor {everybody has their favourite we are sure} deserves a list of their own, but that’s another story. Watch this space for more.

WoW Momo

WoW Momo

With eight outlets in the city and an interesting menu, this Kolkata-based chain is truly wow! Take a bite of their very flavourful momo burgers {quite a twist, we think} and you’ll be craving more. They also have dessert momos. Steamed delights oozing with sinful chocolate, anyone?

One of the few places that serves pork momos in the city, Delicacy likes keeping it simple and authentic — just how we like it. We love that their pork mince is really fine, and that the dough it comes wrapped in is thin and light. Most authentic, we say. Steamed, fried or pan-fried — whichever way you like your momos, this restaurant will definitely not disappoint you.

Snow Lion- Flavors of Tibet

While the usual suspects {chicken and veg momos} are on the menu here, it is the beef momo {steamed or fried} you should make a beeline for. If just tucking into momos is not filling enough, then make a meal out of it with Snow Lion’s Rhu Chotse or beef or chicken momos dunked in a broth rich with stock.

Choi Choi Momos

The momos part of their menu just mentions two variations {veg and chicken}, but what is special is the pan-fried option. Neither bland and steamed nor deep fried in all of the Middle East’s oil, the pan-fried chicken momos make  us feel a wee bit healthier.

Where: 2, 18/1, Nehru Road, Kammanahalli

Taste of Tibet

The steamed beef momos are the crowd-pleasers, though chicken and veggie versions are available too. The delicate parcels come stuffed with a generous portion of mince beef flavoured with ginger and chillies. Served with a fiery chilli chutney and a watery broth, these little pouches are perfect for a rainy day snacking.

Bamey's Restro Cafe

At this Nepali restaurant, an entire section is devoted to steamed, fried, and kothey {pan-fried in Nepalese} momos available in veg, chicken and mutton versions. If you want to spice things up then go for their fiery chilli kind. For those with tamer palates, the Paneer Butter Spinach and Cheesy Chicken Corn are other options. Want to taste everything? then opt for the Bamey’s Momo Platter. Simple. We’re equally intrigued by the Bhatti Ko, steamed momos dunked in a cashew-thickened tomato gravy.

Momo Hut
