Kathmandu may evoke different feelings to different persons for me – it reminds of spicy, fiery, delicious momos.

But you might ask what is in Kathmandu Momo? After all, momo is not even a Nepali cuisine. It is Chinese. Have you ever tasted Chinese Momo, also called Dumplings? You cannot really compare these two. For me, Kathmandu’s momo is way-way better than Chinese dumplings. Don’t agree with me? Head to Kathmandu, now and try Momos there.
