Nepali, especially young people, can’t get enough of momo, and are always looking out for best place to have momo even when traveling to new places. Here are three best places to have momo in Pokhara based on the recommendations and from our own hunt.
Mount Kailash Tibetan Restaurant, Tibetan camp- Chhorepatan
Located at Tibetan camp entrance in Chhorepatan, this small cozy restaurant serves delicious momo and often crowded with locals. It is run by a Tibetan family who hardly speak Nepali. Momo is served with hot chili achaar and tomato-coriander leaves achaar. Also try their simple delicious chowmein prepared from homemade noodles (highly recommended), and also laphing. (map here)
Station-The Food Club, Niva Galli-Chipledhunga
Located at narrow alley named Niva Galli in Chipledhunga, it is very popular and often crowded with young people. When asked about the place to have delicious momo, almost everyone suggested us to visit the place. Momo are served with hot and sweet chili-based sauce different than usual tomato pickle. (map here)
Crossroads, Chipledhunga and Lakeside
Located in Lakeside and Newroad, crossroads serves delicious momo. On the floor above they have Thakali Bhanchha- one of the best for Thakali Khana in Pokhara. Many have recommended us this place but prices are higher than in the two restaurants above. (map here for Chipledhunga and Lakeside)
