Momos in NYC – Himalayan Fast Food Destroys Shangrila Express

This is such a secret. Why am I spilling this? I am ruining Jackson Heights.

BEST momos in the area. Destroys Shangrila Express. That little cart can’t hold a finger to the momos here. I nearly gave up on Tibet after that cart. I haven’t been to Staten Island yet, but these will be hard to beat. For starters, the skin here is thin, delicate and soft but crisp. The insides are always fresh with a bit of grease in there. Plus the sauce they give you, sepen, is absolute smooth greatness. It tastes hot, is it curry? Not the kind of heat that Shangrila offers. It’s a delayed heat with a slow entrance. It’s trojan horse heat.

I’m telling you: for those of you who got your fix of momos at the crappy street cart, Himalayan fast food is the REAL DEAL.

  1. Hey! The cart guys are cool & neighborly. It’s cool if you like the Himalaya momos better but be nice! 🙂

  2. Momos….the best momos that you can get now is i guess in shangri-la restaurant. Juicy with thin skin and really fresh……i liked it.
