Ever wondered what steamed dumplings taste like in Nepal? Look no further. This week we are taking you into a petite Nepalese diner called Momo King, where they serve flavorous dishes that will transport your taste buds to the highlands of the Himalayas.
Cooked the traditional way using native Himalayan herbs, the restaurant promises an authentic experience full of mouth-watering bites that not only taste amazing but also offer a bang-for-your-buck kind of a deal.
Located in Al Ghubra, Diners who love Nepalese cuisine and enjoy Nepali music will feel right at home. The place is a hotspot for food fanatics, attracting lots of expatriates from all walks of life.
I usually stop by to get my momo fix (steamed dumpling with some form of filling), as they are undeniably some of the best in town, and savouring them is pure joy. The restaurant claims to be the only Nepali restaurant in town with most of its ingredients imported from Nepal, promising culinary authenticity that brings Nepalese and Tibetan kitchens to Oman.
What to try you ask? The place is known for their steamed momos, a dough of white flour, shaped in little pockets and filled with meat, served with four different kinds of sauces. You can also try the khaja set, a snack of some sort consisting of mixed vegetables and a bunch of chicken, savoured with crunchy beaten rice. You can also munch on their traditional dried meat, sukuti (a traditional dried meat dish of Nepal, and a staple dish of the Limbu people); it’s absolutely delicious.
Momo King is definitely among the top Asian restaurants in Muscat. Try it and let us know what you think.
