Had best in summers and winters, rain and spring, momos are close to Delhi’s heart. Popular in all forms- steamed, fried and grilled, here are some of Delhi’s best momos.
- Cafe Brown Sugar
A favourite among people of every age, Café Brown Sugar is best known for its wheat momos. Nothing elevates a momo experience than a batch with succulent fillings and a tangy sauce that you’ll end up licking off your fingers. We recommend chicken, spinach and mushroom variants. Warning, their unique chutney is addictive.
Where: Outlets in Defence Colony, Vasant Kunj and GK 1
- Dolma Aunty’s Momos
Dolma Aunty’s stall is very popular with momo lovers for simplicity of flavours. She has been serving momos for more than a decade and her paneer momos are very popular. Her fiery red chilli chutney goes well with the soft momos
Where: Shop 39-B, Central Market, Lajpat Nagar 2
Generations of students swear by their pocket-friendly Chinjabi food. Their Tandoori Momos enjoy a legendary status for students and ex-students alike. They were the pioneers of the Tandoori Momo trend in the city.
Where: Located in Satya Niketan, GTB Nagar, Laxmi Nagar
- Nagaland Stall
Nagaland Stall has been the go-to place for a comforting plate of momos for many years now. Momos comes with a bowl of broth and come with succulent and fillings full of flavour. We recommend their chicken and pork momos along with a spicy plate of ribs. Don’t forget to order a glass of fizzy fruit beer.
Where: Dilli Haat, INA
- Giri Momos
The sheer variety of momos found here is nothing short of foodgasms. They range from Cheese to Afghani to Cocktail momos. We recommend you to try all flavours and find your favourite to stick to.
Where: NSP, Rohini
- Hunger Strike
Popular for Tandoori Momos, Hunger Strike sees hordes of boys and girls outside its stall every evening. Served with pudina chutney, red chilli chutney and onions, these momos are coated with tandoori marinade and grilled in a tandoor. This makes the exterior crispy and insides succulent giving it the classic charred tandoori flavour.
Where: Lajpat Nagar and Greater Kailash
- Yo Tibet
If any Tibetan place can do justice to momos, it is this. The momos made completely true to the authenticity with one side steamed and other, fried giving it a unique texture. Best of both the worlds anyone?
Where: 119-A, Upper Ground Floor, Near NCC Gate, Humanyunpur Village, Safdarjung Enclave
- Momo Mia
Another gem in Dilli Haat, Momo Mia is a part of Arunachal Tourism’s food stall. Chicken and pork momos are succulent and come with a bowl of broth. A bottle of local beer goes well with momos.
Where: Dilli Haat, Aurobindo Marg.
- Wongdhen House
This place is considered as a hidden gem in Majnu Ka Tila market. The momos are excellent enough that even locals recommend it. But as it happens their non-veg momos- namely pork and chicken are the most popular.
Where: 15-A, New Tibetan Colony, Majnu ka Tila
