Momo No Mo

Momo is a Tibetan dumpling. It is also the name my beloved little Enna calls me, being easier for her to pronounce than the Cantonese “daicomo” which means Aunt on my mother’s side.

Apparently, the hot new Tibetan place is no more – or soon to be. Momos were certainly a hit there, as everyone loves dumplings and momos are a Tibetan favorite.

According to the Boston Herald, Chef’s paychecks began to bounce and this while she was gaining accolades for the her food. Vendors are getting cents on the dollar when they can beg from the right staff in person. Not good. Read the story here. How does something like this happen? It’s not a new scenario and yet, people keep giving money to guys like these owners to start another venture. You’d think someone would have seen the problems coming.

Momos at Home

If you want to try to make your own, the Globe ran this recipe. A related Globe article carries the photo of a Nepalese woman in Arlington who makes her own.

She also shared her tomato achar recipe which is the chutney-like dipping sauce.

Momos for momo, mmmm!

  1. I know it’s like the boonies and all, but Himalayan Bistro in West Roxbury has momos. I have nothing to compare them to, being the only momos I’ve ever tried, but they taste great to me – and the kidlet loves them.
