Tip from Trip101 local expert

If you're staying at The Leela Palace and craving some authentic momos, take a walk to the Yashwant Place Shopping Complex. It's my go-to spot after classes - the momos there are simply unbeatable in their juiciness. This place isn't just about the food; it's an experience, immersed in the local Tibetan flavors. Trust me, the bustling vibe and the taste of those momos will stay with you long after you've left.
