Lunch in Berlin: Momos

Having lunch, albeit working in Mitte in between dozens of options, always starts with the question where to have it. Everything has been tried, either approved or dismissed, every favorit has been re-visited countless times and the opening of new spots is always eagerly awaited. And just recently, a reader suggested a new opening named after their main offer: momos.

Which are actually dumplings, but neither from China, nor from Italy or Russia, but from the Himalaya. They look quite alike, though, but momos’ owners emphasize the origin, so I am happy to follow. A more striking feature is this being a completely vegetarian and certified organic deli, where everything is hand made.

The momos come in three sizes, S, M, L, and with four fillings: sweet potato with peas (our favorite), spinach with feta (2nd fav), potato and carrot as well as tofu with sesame (least remarkable in taste) and three different dips: Mitho (lovely tomato salsa-like one with a good spiciness), yoghurt and mint as well as soy sesame. You can chose wether you want them only steamed or also roasted, we received a mixed plate and slightly preferred them roasted. They’ve also got some with sweet filling for dessert, as well as the possibility to get them in a soup or with a salad.

Perfect for a light and healthy lunch, I’m looking forward to more openings of this kind.

    come on guys, my family is from that part of the world and my aunties there would freak out if they saw these were being called ‘momos’!

      because? would love to get some insider knowledge about momos – have you tried them yet?

      LOL, you cannot take the momo shape too seriously! – it’s like a point of pride the momo shape you make :-) You all sit around a table and make heaps of them together, my euro boyfriend joined the table when we were in a village and was shortly laughed off of it. He’s reluctant to make them years later. google nepali momo or tibetan momo to see the traditional shape

    was really excited by the idea; (and so close to my home!)
    but the name ‘momos’ raised some expectations that were not fulfilled. :(
    did not find the taste convincing, also sauce and momos not very matching.

    would recommend to go to one of the tibetan restaurants near @ubahnhof gneisenaustrasse for momos.

    you had me at “new”. no, seriously. everything has been tried (or sometimes given a second chance).

    my to-go spot right now is avan in the kronenstrasse, hidden in that swish concept store, oukan (photo: http://beautycalypse.files.wordpress.com/2013/06/avan-berlin.jpg).
    and I don’t even write much about Berlin. but such ‘trouvailles’… I need to share.
    bonus: they will never be overrun by tourists (too far from the beaten track, too hidden, a sandwich shop next door – naaah).

      I was also drawn by Avan, though the food sadly didn’t convince me in the end… but maybe, they’ve just had a bad day.
