A bite size serving with a spoonful of stuffing wrapped in dough seems have taken over Hong Kong. Yes, we are talking about the oh-so famous item from the Nepalese/Tibetan dish called the momo. While there may be a number of eating houses to gollop momochas, we at the HKYantoYan have picked out The Best Momos In Hong Kong Only For You!
So this place is actually a hidden spot but we assure you that the momos of Up 9 deserve the effort you put into finding the restaurant. The pork, chicken AND vegetarian momo here is a huge hit; served along with a delicious spicy sauce! Mind you, the ambience is just like you’re dining in a shabby home from the early 90s but again, the most awesome spots are always a bit rustic, don’t you think? For those up for a bit of a spice, we also recently tried their chilli chicken momos and they were simply wow!

Another easy to miss restaurant that serves world class momos. Situated on Temple street (yes the night market and red light area and also a popular communal area amongst our Nepalese friends). Hidden behind all the market shops, Manakamana’s chicken momos will get your mouth watering at the drop of a hat! At the look of the eatery, you’d not want to expect much but, your expectations are going to be surpassed.

Probably the most expensive option in our list but the momocha at Nepal restaurant cum bar serves minced lamb, chicken and vegetable momos. Personally, we like the steamed version, but you can also pick the deep-fried one. Being one of the oldest Nepalese restaurant in the city, this is the place where you will find the most authentic and traditional flavour of your beloved momos.

The C-momo is a great choice at the Kowloon Curry House. Wondering what kind of a dish is this? Well, the C-momos is a preparation wherein steamed momos are served in a hot sauce.
