Momo Joints In Delhi You've Gotta Cross Off Your Bucket List

Navni posted on 16 June

Having grown up in Delhi, we can’t help but have a special place in our heart for street food; momo in particular top our list, especially when they’re accompanied by that deadly chilli chutney.

While we all have our go-to momowala when the craving strikes, we’ve listed out some of our favourites for when you want to go exploring

Contrary to its name, this is where all hunger strikes come to an end. Their claim to fame? Tandoori Momo; momo with a charred twist served with a creamy dip.

    Tee Dee

    Majnu ka Tila is momo central but if you find yourself in a bit of a pickle about which joint to try from the many, we say Tee Dee. Choose from a bunch of steamed, fried or even soupy momo in vegetarian, chicken and beef variants.

    Variations Momos King

    Doing a justice to the name, this place serves about 200 momos, each being one of a kind. The only thing that sets it back is the absence of any non-vegetarian momos. Don’t gasp just yet. Save it for the moment after you’ve tried their onion momos and Maggi momos.

    Queen’s Boulevard

    Momo and vodka. The peeps at Queen’s Boulevard have figured out a way to merge the two. Whereas we feared we were going to be getting little flour balls filled to the brim with vodka, we were just a little relieved {and a little disappointed, maybe} that the vodka is mixed in the batter and not the filling. Once it’s got a definite shape, the momo are popped into the tandoor, and then doused in tomato onion gravy, making this a very flavoursome affair.
