Momo - the Himalayan dumpling

Now, how remiss of me not to mention momo (food), a kind of dumpling that is popular in the Himalayan region and India. Thanks to Momo-dog for putting me onto the scent.

There are the meat varieties - minced chicken, pork and water buffalo. We carnivores like that. There are also the vegetarian varieties - potato, tomato, cheese etc. But, wait for this, the tourist variety of Snickers or Mars Bar in downtown Kathmandu.

To really pig out, head towards Momo Plaza in Calcutta. Let's go, Momo-dog (and any one who cares to join us)!

Yeh, MoMo. I have tried them before, in Nepal. Quite yummy, actually. The local called it "more more" although it spells MoMo.
