The Vegetarian's Guide To Finding Juicy, Delicious Momos In Mumbai

Jayati posted on 30 January

Steaming hot, soft steamed buns served with chutney or mayonnaise, there’s a different pleasure in eating hot momos. For the vegetarians out there though, it can be tough. Very few places do variations of vegetarian momos, let alone good enough for us herbivores to keep coming for them. Here’s our guide to the most delicious vegetarian momos in Mumbai. Lajpat Nagar, what’s good?

Paneer Momos, Kepchaki Momos

Every Bandra loyalist swears by Kepchaki, a tiny momo stall in Bandra that serves up amazing delish momos. But did you know how tasty their paneer momos are? Let us tell you: the paneer filling is soft and does complete justice to the taste. It’s served with red chutney.

Cheese & Mushroom Momos, Kepchaki Momos

If paneer isn’t our scene, then we recommend going for the mushroom and cheese momos. Again, let us remind you the beauty of these steamed momos. The melted cheese combined with mushrooms is our own version of food perfect.

Veg Momos, New Sernyaa

Your typical street Chinese restaurant, this one in Lokhandwala is another gem serving happiness to us herbivores. The vegetarian momos can be steamed, pan fried or deep fried {whatever really floats your boat}. Comes with a spicy chutney, and we are loving it.

Paneer Momos, Dev’s Momo Hut

A tiny roadside stall stationed outside the Lower Parel Station, this one had us reminiscing of our Dilli momos. Choose from the vegetarian momos with fillings of cabbage, onions and more or the paneer momos. Both are super affordable, served with a generous amount of homemade tomato and garlic chilli chutney. Be warned, it’s not for the weak hearted.

#LBBTip: He sits there from 5.30pm until 10.30 pm {unless he runs out of his momos which does happen, especially over the weekend}.

Spinach, Corn & Paneer Momos, Dimsum Express

One of the best vegetarian momos we chanced upon, Dimsum Express is absolutely a must-visit. It’s a tiny standalone place in JB Nagar and can be easily missed. Dedicated to momo lovers, it does a mean plate of spinach, corn and paneer momos, served with four kinds of chutneys. The menu is pretty diverse when it comes to the vegetarian section, so you can try other plates a well.
