Momos Mom Hand Momos in Satya Niketan

If you're as crazy about momos as I am, you've got to check out Mom Hand Momos in Satya Niketan. They've mastered more than 50 kinds! Whether it's steamed, fried, smothered in gravy, or charred tandoori-style, this place is my momo heaven. Hop off at the Durgabai Deshmukh South Campus metro station, and you're just a short walk away from this momo oasis.
