Momo & More is a newly opened speciality momo restaurant in Karama. Located a few doors down from where one of my favourite South Indian breakfast spots was locate, Royal Garden, its three table and a wall counter interior is small even by Karama standards. But its bright and cheerful without seeming cheap.
Looking at the menu I never thought there could be such diversity with the humble momo: Dynamite Cheetos Momo, Baked Momo Au Gratin, Momo Fondue – if you like momos, you’ve never had it so good. I asked Rafi, the young Filipino lad in charge of the restaurant, what he recommended, and he suggested I try their best-selling Chicken Pan Fried Momo (in Schezwan sauce). Craving noodles, always a good idea at a Nepalese restaurant, I also ordered a Chicken Hakka Noodles. The momos were really good although I will order them with dipping sauce (rather than smothered in sauce) next time. The noodles too were good but could have done with a little more wok sear.
Although Momo & More is Indian owned, its kitchen is run by Nepalese chef Rabin Biswakarma. This is not a Nepalese restaurant as I indicated above, it’s a momo restaurant of which there is no shortage of, especially in Karama. I love momos and have been to most. Unless you are into pushing the limits of variety, there’s little new Momo & More offers; their momos certainly aren’t any better than my favourite, Momo House, in Sharjah. But they’re good and well worth a visit if you’re in the neighbourhood.
