6. Wow! Momo
While the chain is known for doing a bunch of amazing things with the quintessential momos. Think Sizzler Momos, MoBurg (Momo Burgers), Momo Chats, Momo Au Gratin, and a Chocolate momo dish for dessert. But we really love their Tandoori momos because of the crispy exterior and a soft tandoori interior. The also don’t drizzle too many sauces on top, which makes this one a winner for us.
