Momo in Japan

While I was surfing tags for Nepal, I came across this wonderful photo of delicious Momo in Nepal. For those of you who don’t know what Momo are, this is what it said:

If there is one food you will learn about in Nepal, its the Nepali Momo! It is often eaten as an appetizer or a snack and found in almost all restaurants or sold by vendors in street corners.

I was wondering how much a plate of Momo costs in Nepal. Here in Japan, you can get momo at a Nepalese Restaurant, but it costs at lot more. For example, this restaurant in Tokyo charges 680 yen ($8.50) for 4 momo!

So how much would a plate cost in Nepal?

By the way, here in Japan, the most popular type of dumpling is a Chinese style dumpling called Gyoza.

  1. I didn’t know about Momo.
    It looks so delicious, and looks like variety of Chinese dumplings.(shoronpo)

    • Yeah, I think there must be some Chinese influence in Nepalese cuisine, being so close to the border of China and all.

      I am looking forward to eating some Momo in February!
