A world of incredible 'momos'

A world of incredible 'momos'

Chinese flavours

Chinese food is something that one can find in every nook and corner of the City. It has many variations depending on who is making it. But the food finds a lot of takers as long it is made well. Momoz, an eating joint in Koramangala, is one such place. The place, started by Amit Singh, is hot favourite with students of Jyoti Nivas College and Christ University and is buzzing with people who love gulping down hot momos.

The place has a complete Chinese menu, except for two items. “Thukpa and momos are Tibetan food, which have been included in the menu because of their popularity,” says Alan Colliss, the manager. You have to try out the momos while you are here.

A plate of momos is served with a cup of peanut sauce which is slightly sour but has the creamy texture of peanuts. Made from tomatoes, peanuts, ginger, garlic and onions, it surely makes for a lip-smacking accompaniment for the momos. The momos themselves are juicy and full of flavours. You can also try out the cheese vegetarian momos, which are filled with cheese to give a slight twist to this old recipe. “The momos here are really great and I come to this place only for them,” says Sandeep, who eats regularly at the place. One should also try out the korthio, which are flat noodles cooked in mustard sauce, nuts, cabbage, carrots and spring onions. It is available in egg, chicken and prawn flavours too. The korthio is slightly salty but the vegetables used are fresh and unlike noodles, it is wet and juicy. The other popular items on the list are golden fried babycorn, crispy veg, honey potato and chilli paneer. Among the main courses, it is the chilli garlic noodles that seems to be really good and is one of the popular items.  There is also something called David Chicken, which is made from a special David sauce and is used in Momoz special items. The chef, Krishna Sharpa, who is from Darjeeling, tells us that it is made from lemongrass and basil leaves and is spicy and tangy to taste. “It has been specially made by me and is a lemon-coloured sauce,” he says.  The other sauces you can taste at the place are mustard sauce which is used with chicken; tomin sauce, made from fish and prawns, and the black bean sauce, used in gravy items. Momoz is located in KHB Colony, 5th block, Koramangala. For details, call 41739353.
