If you’re going to enjoy a Nepali πŸ‡³πŸ‡΅ feast, Jhol Momo would certainly be the ultimate comfort food; as a matter of fact, we were even mo’motivated to do it because of the encroaching cold weather. At Nepali Bhanchha Ghar, 74-06 37th Rd, Jackson Heights, Queens, winner of this year’s #momocrawl πŸ₯Ÿ, we tasted a bit of many dishes, specifically:

β€’ Chicken Choila, grilled chicken marinated in a blend of spices.
β€’ Buffalo Sukuti, dry meat, like jerky.
β€’ Achar, a pickled dish, here half fish and half mula (radish).
β€’ Bhuttun, organ meats; tasty indeed.
β€’ Sel Roti, a ring of fried rice flour, traditional in Nepali cuisine; get at least one!
β€’ and last, but certainly never least, Jhol Momo, chicken and pork, each with its own characteristic shape. The steamed dumplings swim in a pool that lies somewhere along the sauce-soup continuum, and the two complement each other perfectly. The word jhol means soup and here it was delicious in its own right.

Tip: When you enter, you’ll see two tiny tables. Don’t be discouraged: go downstairs and you’ll discover a much more capacious dining room. Warmer too! πŸ˜‰
