All That Fluff: Momo Places In Delhi You Have To Cross Off Your Bucket List

    Having grown up in Delhi, we can’t help but have a special place in our heart for street food, and, momos 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 try something new.

    Hunger Strike

    Hunger Strike

    Lajpat Nagar - 4, Delhi

    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. There is a perfect balance of cream and other spices in every bite. The place is super crowded in the evenings and for all the right reasons too.
