The Iconic Taste of Momos

Momo is a type of South Asian dumpling, which is native to Tibet, Nepal, and the Northeastern regions of India. The exact history of Momo is difficult to trace, but it is believed that they were first created in Tibet several hundred years ago. Tibetan nomads would travel to other regions with their yaks and would bring their traditional cuisine with them. They would often make dumplings from yak meat, which would be filled with various vegetables and spices. Over time, this dish became known as Momo. In the 1970s, Momos began to gain popularity in Nepal, and from there, they spread to other countries in South Asia. Nowadays, these tasty dumplings are a favourite among locals and tourists alike and are often sold by street vendors or in small mom-and-pop restaurants.

The success of Momos as a street food in India can be attributed to a few factors. Firstly, Momos are relatively easy to make and can be prepared quickly, which makes them ideal street food. Secondly, they are affordable and offer a tasty snack or meal option for people on a budget. Thirdly, their unique flavour and texture have made them a popular choice among food enthusiasts, who are always on the lookout for new and exciting dishes to try. Today, Momos are popular in countries such as Nepal, India, Bhutan, and Bangladesh, and they have also gained popularity in other parts of the world, including the United States, Canada, and Australia.


Momos are typically made with a flour-based dough, which is filled with various ingredients such as minced meat, vegetables, cheese, or tofu. Then, they are then steamed, fried, or boiled and served with a variety of dipping sauces. One reason for the popularity of Momos is their versatility. They can be filled with a variety of ingredients, making them suitable for vegetarians and vegans too. We can offer two delicious vegan options – Steamed Mushroom Momos in Manchurian Sauce and Street Food Style Fried Chili Momos with Spicy Sesame Sauce. Made with fresh mushrooms and a variety of vegetables, our Steamed Mushroom Momos in Manchurian Sauce are packed with flavour and nutrients.

On the other hand, our Fried Chili Momos are a delicious and spicy twist on traditional Momos. Made with plant-based ingredients, these tasty dumplings are filled with a savoury mix of vegetables and spices, then fried to crispy perfection and covered in sesame seeds. The addition of fiery chilli peppers adds a bold kick of heat, making them a popular choice for spice-loving customers looking for vegan options.
