As Dilliwale, we can’t help but have a special place in our heart for street food, and momo in particular, is on the top our list, especially when they’re accompanied by that deadly chilli chutney. We all have our go-to momowala when the craving strikes, and we’ve listed out some of our favourites that we swear by.

Hunger Strike

Contrary to its name, this is where all hunger strikes come to an end. Their claim to fame is the highly debated but eaten none the less Tandoori Momo, which is momo with a charred twist served along 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. 

Price: INR 140 upwards

Brown Sugar

Ask a South Delhi person where to get the best momo, we will direct you to Brown Sugar and rightly so. Brown Sugar at GK-1 is the hub of every momo lover, with classic steamed momo winning our hearts. For someone who has had momo from almost every corner of Delhi, Brown Sugar remains undefeated.

Price: INR 160 upwards.

Pro-Tip: Order Lemon Ice-Tea too to make your experience all the more refreshing.

Yeti–The Himalayan Kitchen

Newari momo with sesame sauce, need we say more? Yeti also serves some of the most delectable aloo momo we’ve ever had. Pair it with a pint of beer and you’re all set for the evening. They are known for the authentic Nepalese and Tibetan cuisine that they serve. 

Price: INR 275 upwards

Yashwant Place

Fried chicken momo, steamed chicken momo, lamb momo and pork momo—Yashwant Place has it all. We recommend Chimney Sizzlers in particular here (shop 11), where not only is the food a level above the rest, but you can ask the waiter to hook you up with some alcohol too. Oh, they also serve fish steam momo and prawn steam momo, for all the sea food lovers out there. 

Price: INR 220 upwards 

Pema’s

This almost hidden Tibetan café on Shivalik road has some great finds for all momo fans. Available in chicken, vegetarian, paneer and pork variants, Pema’s momo are best had steamed.

Price: INR 160 upwards

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 buff variants.

Price: INR 100 upwards

LBB Tip: They also do a fabulous tingmo (steamed bread) that you can always pair with shapta. 

Momo’s Point

The folks at Momo’s Point have all the usual momos (and great ones at that) but in addition also do some interesting Masala Momo, with a desi spin, for people who love spice. They have steamed, fried, masala, tandoori, afghani and momo tossed in honey. 

Price: INR 139 upwards

Dilli Haat

An all-time favourite, Dilli Haat is a haven for momo of all kinds. From chicken, paneer, vegetarian to pork, the North Eastern stalls here have our momo needs covered to the T. Lost on where to grab a bite? We suggest the Sikkim and the Nagaland stall.

Price: INR 120 upwards (approximately)

Giri Momos & Chinese Fast Food

Ever tried mozzarella momo? Maybe it’s time you did. Giri has one of the largest momo menus we’ve ever come across with Afghani Momo, Cheese Momo, Cocktail Momo, Manchuria Momo, Mushroom Momo and even Hot Garlic Momo options. There’s plenty of both non-vegetarian as well as veggie options.

Price: INR 30 upwards

QD’s Restaurant

If you're strolling down the lanes of Satya Niketa, you must visit QD's. This place is perhaps the first to have given momo a tandoori twist. Although lots of places are doing this successfully now, QD’s game remains strong with their classic vegetarian and chicken tandoori momo. 

Price: INR 200 upwards

Street, The Momo

Ever wished your momo plate to never end? This momo place in Jamia will make you feel like going on an endless Momo feast. The best part about the momo here is that they glaze it with butter on top and it comes with two chutneys, making it a super hit combo. The food joint has had a humble beginning but due to the overwhelming love shown by the public, they might just open up their own café. 

Price: INR 60 upwards

Hawkers

For one of the best-fried chicken momo in time, Hawkers in Vasant Kunj is the place to be. Vegetarians, don’t fret, they also have paneer and vegetable options too. The momo comes in three variants, steamed, fried and pan-fried. 

Price: INR 90 onwards (approximately)

Dolma Aunty Momo

We might get called out if we don’t put this on the list, so here. For that quick plate of momo with some seriously fiery chutney, Dolma Aunty Momo in the main Lajpat Nagar market hits the spot every time. They also have an outlet in Kamla Nagar

Price: INR 60 onwards

Chiangs

Started at DDA Market Sukhdev Vihar, this food joint moved wheels by starting their own food truck at Jamia, which turned out to be a hit and they opened up their permanent spot at Jamia Nagar, serving some delicious Chinese food. Their momo are what one would call 'authentic' that are super filling and full of stuffing.

Price: INR 100 upwards

Doing justice to the name, this place serves about 200 momo variants, each being one of a kind. The only thing that sets it back is the absence of any non-vegetarian momo. However, we highly recommend their onion and Maggi momo.

Price: INR 50 onwards 

Momo Hut

This delivery-only outlet in Noida has over 20 options for momo. Butter Masala Momo, Mushroom Momo, Cheese Corn Momo to name a few. They even have a Vegan Momo Burger, which we think is pushing it, but experimental none the less.
