How to go and when to go:-
This is on the Fern Road, in south Calcutta and behind the gariahat auto stand there. The detailed address and menu can be found here . This is open from 12 noon till 10 PM everyday.
First things first: Prices are damn reasonable. You get one plate of 6 pcs momo (full plate) with an option of ordering 1/2 plate (4 pcs) for the weak-eaters also….. The full plate costs around 120/-
The owner seemed to hail from Nepal and hence knows her stuff- how to prepare a momo and how to make it good. The fillings were very, very thin and stuffing was sufficient. We tried the steamed versions only and they came with a mouth-watering soup (this can easily be sold as a separate item).
We were offered
- mutton momo (steamed)
- fish momo (steamed)
- vegetable and soya momo (steamed) ….. now this one was new to us and damn good
- chicken momo (steamed). This is standard fare, still better than most of the places and definitely comparable to the best in town.
On the negative side, I felt the spicy quotient is a little toned down (the peeper part), maybe to suit the local palate… But, overall, definitely a place worth discovering and if this quality stays for 6 more months, it can give many a joints a run for their money.
Bon apetite !!!
