Kidsmomo — Good to the Last Bite

September 9th, 2009 by

The other day, a couple friends and I went on a food crawl — which means that we dedicated the afternoon to snacking at a bunch of different places. The idea is to eat only a little at each spot, but no matter what, we always end the day so stuffed that we’re barely able to stand upright. To put it in children’s book terms: you know August Gloop in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and how he falls into the river of chocolate because he’s such a glutton? Yeah, that was us.

One of our stops was a cafe where they sold tons of fried snacks through a gigantic window opening onto the street. We didn’t know what anything was called or what was in it, so in a mad haze of greedy anticipation, we just pointed to this, that, and the other thing, and oh, why not, one of those things too. In the frenzy of ordering, I didn’t notice this poster until it was too late:

WHA?! Frozen momo?!

Then I turned around and noticed this explanatory sign:

momo_dumpling

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh…

Turns out that momo is a type of South Asian dumpling! There are lots of different kinds of fillings, from goat to yak meat to cheese. But it made me wonder… if a dumpling made out of chicken is called chicken momo and a dumpling made out of pork is called pork momo, then what exactly is kidsmomo?

Yikes!
