We can now break up a shopping trip by snacking on our favourite Nepalese dumplings, as Yalla Momos opens in The Dubai Mall.
The self-proclaimed first dumpling joint in the UAE is already quite the local success story, with branches around the north of Dubai. Now it’s moving south and you can find its scrumptious momos, Maggi and tea by Reel Cinemas in the giant Downtown shopping centre.
Yalla Momos is already a hit with cinema-goers at Vox Cinemas in the Cineplex, Grand Hyatt, BurJuman and Deira City Centre. It also has restaurants in International City’s Russian Cluster and behind the Park Regis hotel in Karama.
Shoppers at The Dubai Mall can now grab a bite of the best-selling buff (buffalo) momos in between retail therapy or nourishment post-movie watching with Masala Maggi noodles.
For the uninitiated, momos are a type of South Asian dumplings that are usually made with white flour and served with a spicy dipping sauce. In news to no-one, they’re absolutely freaking delicious.
Momos are available steamed or fried in a host of tasty fillings. There are veggie options too and the best part is that prices are very, very reasonable, with most items on Yalla Momo’s menu well under AED 20.
