Where To Find The Best Momos in Delhi?

Updated on October 10, 2010

Momo recipe comes from Tibetan cuisine and one should try momos out at a Tibetan place. There is a Tibetan refugee colony (DU students swear by it) at Majnu Ka Tila Market and Potala House is a travel hotel/restaurant in Majnu ka Tila that was warmly recommended to me some days ago. For non-vegetarians, Potala is a heaven, as recommended by one of my friends.

Location: Reach Majnu ka Tila, facing the Tibetan refugee colony and land up at Potala. Potala is a hotel there and has a restaurant, which is very popular with Tibetans and students of Delhi University.

Entered the restaurant and found that there were square shaped tables (each with four chairs), neat and clean with many guests inside. The time was about 7 p.m. in the evening. While waiting for the ordered food, my eyes fell on the bookrack at the corner (beside a refrigerator). There were several travel books along with some Tibetan book with titles like Om Mani Padme Hum. Took one travel book and went through it. Tibetan delicacies with India travel book made the evening wonderful.

Ordered some steamed momo along with chili nonveg showmen and thankthuk (traditional short, flat, hand pulled noodle soup). The taste was very satisfying and the price was reasonable. Although the special homemade reddish pickle they serve with the momos was very spicy.

Although a lot of variety food is served there, following were tried and tasted with high degree of satisfaction:

  • Shaptak, which I recommend as a wonderful dish of sliced marinated non-veg steaks and then pan-fried with red and green peppers in spicy tomatoes, onions and ginger sauce. One plate is enough for two people if you are ordering some other dishes as well. All dishes are reasonably priced.
  • Then a plate of sha peking, which was shredded non-veg with garlic sauce.

Both dishes were great, the meat was tender, the spicing was just right, and there were hot and fresh momos which were indeed juicy and light. The portions were very generous. The food made us stuffed to our gills.

For nonveg lovers, Potala House in New Tibetan Colony is a paradise and one of the best and the oldest restaurant loved by delhites and travel visitors as mentioned on IndiaMike travel forum.
