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.
