Delhiites take their momos very seriously. So, we headed to check out the Momo King, hoping they’ll be as good as the ones we find on the street. Verdict: They don’t disappoint! A big food chain in Malaysia, they’ve entered the Indian space and thankfully chosen Delhi. Currently, this hugely popular street food spot has 6 outlets across the Delhi-NCR region including three dine-in outlets in Malviya Nagar, Baani Square and Sushant Lok (seating capacity of 8 to 10 people across all) and three cloud kitchens.
The folks here are dedicated to delivering the authentic taste of momos (the type that you get in Himalayan regions) and the staff will serve them to you with a smile. If bingeing on momos is one of your guilty-pleasures, this one is a fab (and hygienic) option to go to.
The menu includes a variety of pan-fried, jhol (steamed dumplings drowned in flavourful curry soup), steam, deep fried, sandheko (spicy and tangy pan-fried dumplings tossed in traditional Nepalese tempered masala), tandoor and open momos (the latter is their signature). They are also known for their Kothey, signature Nepalese-style half steamed and pan-fried momo. Our favourite of the lot were the cheese momos, which may sound basic, but the perfectly thing wrapper on the outside along with the delicious stuffing and cheese bursting in our mouth is something we want to gorge on repeatedly.
