Little Momo ~ Nepalese - Newtown

Momos are the dumpling kings of Nepalese food, distantly related to gyoza, mandoo and baozi. Little Momo in Newtown serves them up big and small, steamed or fried, meat or veg, sweet and savoury. Just how many you want to eat is up to you.

It's a cold, rainy day and the rivers of storm water are flowing down the gutters of King St. We don't feel like straying far from B-Kyu headquarters so a quick brisk stroll up the road has us seeking out some comfort food. Little Momo has been tucked in behind our thinking beanies as a stand by for just this emergency.

The one dish we have spied on the menu every time we've walked by is thukpa ($15.90). Being fairly obsessive noodle soup fans we had to try this new dish to us.

The chicken noodle soup is a lightly spiced, tomato base filled with rice noodles, carrot sticks and cabbage, topped with chunks of grilled chicken thigh fillets. The green beans were lightly grilled too, adding another layer of flavour. A soup to keep on the search list, we're keen to find some other versions of this.

Momos in soup, $16.90. While this is on the pricier side for a dumpling soup, the larger momos (there are about 10 in here) were filling and the broth was full and satisfying. Green veg provide some chlorophyl.

Little Momo is at 398 King St, Newtown. Ph: 02 8542 1626.
