We meet at Jadavpur mostly in the afternoon specially for the attraction of momo. After tasting many varieties of momo in Kolkata, we both come to this conclusion that the most delicious and at the same time pocket-friendly momo can be found from the street vendors of Jadavpur.
Momo lovers can have counter questions but No, we are not forgetting about Territi Bazar or Salt lake’s ‘Bapi da’, the texture and the taste of the momo of Jadavpur will attract you to have it repeatedly. There are three momo stalls in a same row on that same footpath where we have our breakfast , the tastes of the three stalls are more or less same, you may not have any distinct difference in their tastes but we mostly prefer the middle stall named ‘Tasty Momo’. The friendly behaviour of the stall owner will impress you and he will also give a piece of chicken in your soup and for us the soup is the unique part of the whole momo plate because you can hardly find a better tasty momo-soup than them. You can get here almost all types of momos- steamed, fried, pan-fried, cheese momo, cheese fried momo & if you are lucky then you’ll also get chocolate momo. But we usually order chicken fried momo most of the time. They also have a speciality in their hand made green chutney and the red sauce. These will create sweet-tangy-chili twists in your taste buds so that the whole package of soft or crunchy momos with the sauces and the soup will give the feel of real bliss to your tongue.
In Jadavpur you’ll get another place which is specialized for making the pan-fried chicken momo extremely delicious. The crispy fried momos are tossed in the Chef’s special sauces with spring onion and smoky garlic and then topped with white sesame seeds. The final touch of the sesame seeds brings the uniqueness of this restaurant. And for this dish you won’t have to spend much from your pocket. This is not a very old restaurant but almost a new one, named ‘Food Bowl’. It is situated on the same footpath where we get the footpath-momo-stalls. If you try the dish here you are going to remember it always.
