Enjoy staple Nepalese dumplings by Ashvita Bistro’s GoGo MoMo, from the comfort of your hom.
STEAMED momos can lay claim to being the perfect snack — delicious, healthy, with ample variety of fillings. Which is why it made a lot of sense for Ashvita — which gave us restaurants like Ashvita Bistro and Ashvita Nirvana — to begin GoGo MoMo, an outlet that delivers momos and nothing else.Starting point
Kripa Thomas, CEO of Ashvita retail, explains, “I always liked the taste, and although it is now a common concept (momo pick-up counters) in Chennai, you really can’t get it everywhere. It was already available in our restaurant, so I thought why not have a kiosk outside. And our sauces and fillings are really different,” she adds. They offer chocolate and mockmeat as filling options, meant to cater to people who have converted to vegetarianism.
GoGo MoMo gets it right with the packaging—the carry bag is an Ashvita product, with a label revealing that it is made by people with special needs. The most popular momo from the menu is the chicken and cheese, which is a hit with us, too, with just the right amount of cheese. The vegetarian bestseller is the corn and cheese version. However, we didn’t quite take to the dragon mockmeat momos, which were supposed to have the flavour of mince meat but didn’t quite get it right.
With plans for 10 counters by the end of this year, they also intend to add more varieties of fillings.
At Rs 95 – Rs 120. At Bawa Road, Alwarpet (42109990), and Fifth Avenue, Besant Nagar (24424404)
