What Makes It Awesome
The Darjeeling is a hidden gem for Chinese lovers! Their pork momos are one of the most popular items on the menu, served with a sauce that is an absolute delight for those who love the heat.

They are available on Zomato as well as Swiggy.
Cost for two can approximately be INR 500 here.
