Loads of cultures have them and Kolkata loves them. And in last few years we have showed much love and affections to these little dumplings and made these almost part of regular meal. Fresh, Oil Free and Pocket Friendly.
Momos (pronounced mo-mos) are meat or vegetable filled dumplings originally from Nepal and Tibet. Here these are completely hand made starting with local flour based casings and are filled with chicken or veggie mix. They serve them with a tasty soup !
Momos are typically steamed but they can be pan fried as well.
Unassuming restaurant in Dunlop near Gurudwara, mainly with a price attractive fixed menu. The surprise for us was that it was traditional cuisine. Simple, tasty and unexpected. I particularly like the Dim Shom Kothey and Veg Baozi that brought back were evocative of steamed puddings of my childhood. The dumplings were cooked to order, and were served hot and fresh, and tasted great. Noodles were also good. There is a good selection on the menu, but the main reason to come here is the dumplings for sure. Charming staff. I feel sure the owner will not chastise me for saying this Dumpling Joint is not the best looking place to visit, ok for sure but just needs a face lift.
We had in menu –
Chicken Capsicum Pan Fried Momosin Tomato Garlic Sauce
Prawn Pan Fried Momos in Schezwan Sauce
Corn Cottage Kothey with Mayonnaise Dip
Chicken Cheese Baozi
Dim Shom Kothey
Chicken Momo Sizzler
Tasty little parcels bursting with flavor for which one can visit many a times to this Dumpling Momo. Recommend. Wow Momo makes many items but they pack more flavor at this restaurant with their comparatively short menu . Over all a good experience.
