Momos are one of the most popular fast foods in Nepal! They are steamed dumplings with either a succulent meat or a flavourful vegetarian filling, mixed with our own blend of herbs and spices. They have a unique taste and aroma - they're unlike any other dumplings you've had before and thats a promise!
In 2015, a group of friends banded together to host a fundraiser for those devastated by the earthquakes in Nepal. We introduced Ottawa to momos and raised money to help some grass-roots organizations that helped mobilize the youth in Nepal and provide sustainable housing to the rural areas.
Excited to bring something different to the Ottawa culinary scene, we started The Momo Spot. We are not chefs by any means but all of us have been home-trained by our moms and bajes(grandmas) for years! We’ve all mastered the mystic Iron-Claw technique (handed down from generations past, as the legend goes) of folding each and every momo meticulously!
The 'secret sauce' behind a plate of delicious Momos is the ... wait for it.. sauce! Yes, really – its all about the sauce! We make our sauce from scratch as well using locally sourced ingredients. We constantly get asked why we don't bottle and sell it so best believe its that good ;)
We want to emulate our own experiences tasting these delectable delicacies for the first time so you can see why we’re crazy about what we’re going on about, like ALL the time. Our mission is to share this with you, to let you have your own Momo Moment!
