Urban Momo gets its name from its signature dish ‘Momo’. Momo is a Nepali steamed dumpling filled with minced vegetables or ground meat served with a side of Achaar, a dipping sauce. The origin of Momo can be traced back to the times when the indigenous Newari community travelled to Tibet for trade and barter of goods. They enjoyed this dumpling so much that they wanted to replicate it in Nepal but did not have the same ingredients available locally and thus the Momo was born; a Newari twist to the Tibetan dumpling. The delectable dipping sauce (sauce) has a tomato and sesame seeds base with several fragrant spices like Sichuan peppercorns, turmeric, coriander.
Their founders and Chefs perfected the recipes over several years of cooking at the various restaurants across Nepal, in the Himalayas during expeditions and around the world. It is a taste that Nepalese would reminisce on when they think about authentic food back in Nepal; a taste that takes you back home! All the spices and proportions are from the secret recipe that originated by improvising the traditional recipe over several years.
