Sita Ram & Sons
Next, let’s head to Sita Ram & Son, located right at the beginning of Lakkar Bazar. Though best known for their incredible choley-luchi, they also make amazing momos.

If you’re up for trying something different, Four Tables is the spot for you. This café near the Ridge offers a fusion of Tibetan and Continental cuisines. Their Tandoori Momos are a must-try. Imagine dumplings marinated in a flavorful blend of spices and cooked in a tandoor oven.
The result? Smoky flavours and tender dumplings will take your taste buds on a delicious culinary adventure. I can be usually seen here every fortnight, for their momos keep bringing me back!
