Momo is a type of steamed bun with or without filling. Momo has become a traditional delicacy in Nepal, Tibet and among Nepalese/Tibetan communities in Bhutan, Sikkim and Darjeeling district.

I had Momo in Pohkara, Nepal three years ago, in a Tibetan restaurant. Though Momo was originated from Tibet, it’s rather popular in Nepal.

Momo has many versions range from chicken, beef, pork, water buffalo or vegetables, steamed or pan-ried. Served with tomato base dipping sauce, Momo can be served as starter or a main course.

Momo is best served with Tongba – a millet-based alcoholic beverage, a very popular drink among the locals.
