Bloggers MOMO-Day Out

When in Kolkata, A hot humid afternoon is something u don't really have a problem with. because there is so much do do in this city. Today being one such afternoon, me and my dear blogger friend went on our favorite summer afternoon activity. BINGE.
Momos from Hamro Momos

Well, after the lovely hospitality as Blue Poppy , we decided to try out  the much talked about Hamro Momo. Located at Suburban Hospital Road ( walking distance from Forum Mall ) . This place is like a small little shop , but with high activity going on in it. One can love to eat momos, But the fun of eating it in a small little joint os past comapre. Although the Momos wernt to great, the experience indeed was. We had a steamed momo, Pepper chicken and Chicken 65.
Chicken 65
The much talked about momo was just average but the chicken 65 kinda got us talking. Fantastic , and bold curry flavor and a hard hitting spicy note. Although it tasted more south Indian than at a Tibetian joint, i have no qualms saying that i did like it. Even the sauce of the pepper chicken was stunning. Although the chicken was cooked previously , the sauce was brilliant. Zing of lemon and rush of pepper . even the onions tossed in it tasted fabulous.

Pepper Chicken
The Best thing came at the end , the cheque. Chicken Steamed Momo, Chicken 65, Pepper Chicken, Mineral water ....Rs 218

Pot Stickers
Although we had a blast, the quest for La Momo Extrodinaire was still pending. Thus, we decided that why not try its slightly cleaner next door neighbor, Momo Plaza. This one looks like a dingy place when u enter it but what came to our surprise was that they had Pot-Stickers (dumplings pan seared on 1 side ) called Kothey ...... and they also had pan fried momos tossed in a hot garlic sauce. Honest opinion, The pan fried momos here are way better than blue poppy.

Pan Fried with Gravy
The thing that i liked here was the fantastic Dipping Sauce. Spicy, but not gullet burning hot, with heady coriander bursts, gingery undertones and a fantastic balance of chili, with hints of sweetness.

The Lunch ended with an over  stuffed belly an satiated taste buds.

More to come on thukpas.......

P.S. Special Thanks to My Blogger Friend Poorna

  1. wheehee!! we had a fun day out, and okay, Ma and Sis loved the Thukpa.

  2. Great post! Kothey is served @ Tibetan Delight too. Also Chicken 65 is actually a popular South Indian dish. So they got the taste right, but wonder what it was doing @ a Tibetan joint :)

  3. love the look of that chicken 65 :D
