What if I tell you that I went to a place where Delhi’s best momo joints came under one roof? Yes, to satiate my eternal love for momos, my colleague and I went to gorge on some scrumptious momos. Well, I get high on food and same happened at the GoBuzzinga’s Momo Festival.
Let’s start with an apology. We went there to make a good video, as we are video first platform, but the madness over momos didn’t let us make any video.
Organised by GoBuzzinga & Delhi Food Walks, it was one crazy place for momo lovers. The Garden of Five Senses was jam-packed, which I was not expecting at all. So the plan was to visit there, taste a few good and unique ones and send video to the editor. And return to home, well after all who loves working on Saturday. But what happened next was unbelievable.
We were there on time, but never realised that Delhiites are mad over momos. People were drolling over the yummies. So, we started with the place, which we thought was least crowded. However, we were wrong. The line was so long that it took us almost 1 hour 30 minutes to get 4 pieces of lamb momos. However, it was worth waiting. They were soft, tender and delicious. 6 Pack Momos’ Kho-Kho-Nut Momos and Lamb momos were excellent. And we were once again excited!
Next was the stall where people were going crazy and pushing each other. Though I hurt my back to get one plate of chili Chicken Momos, they were finger-licking good. Chilli, chicken, veggies, and momos — The combination was perfect. Next, we were looking for something sweet. But as it was the momo hunt, we went for some chocolate ones. After waiting for almost 1 hour and 15 minutes, we were at the counter. The waiting staff handover those delicious looking Choco-Bomb Momos. Momo-Tarian’s chocolate momos just helped us to avoid ice-cream and shakes.
Of course, our next target was the one we were most excited for — Queen’s Boulevard’s Vodka Momos. I was expecting it to be filled with vodka but was disappointed when I tasted it. The vodka was mixed in the batter of momos, and not the filling. It was tandoored, and then doused in tomato onion gravy. But we didn’t stop there. We went ahead and tried Galouti Kebab Momos, Afghani Momos, and Peri Peri Momos as well. And that was it.
Hey Delhiites, the fest is not yet over. It is on tomorrow as well. Go for it.
