Momos are one of the staple foods you can find in Nepal. Many Nepali families love to prepare these at home for their families, but you can also find them easily in restaurants and street-stands. Momo is a type of dumpling, most commonly used in South Asia. I find them to be bigger in size compared to the Chinese dumplings (jiaozi). They also love to serve momo’s in Nepal with a spicy tomato-based sauce. When I was staying with my host family in Nepal, we made more than 300 momos! Here is the recipe to make the best local momos & their special momo sauce!

Especially the house package, you wouldn’t be able to find anywhere else in Abu Dhabi that has brunch for only AED 105 including house drinks. If you want to take advantage of this deal (limited time only), head over to Groupon. Search up C.Taste if not already on the main page for it. Enjoy!

Cho Gao, Crowne Plaza Abu Dhabi, UAE
Last week, for Jon’s birthday, we were invited to Crowne Plaza’s Cho Gao Restaurant’s newly opened Sushi Bar. They have a new Taste of Japan menu, featuring some of the most unique sushi rolls I’ve ever tasted. From the sushi bar, you can see up close how the chefs make each dish. We learned a few things from Chef Kashi Ram. Here is a quick Step-by-Step of the infamous Unagi Roll at Cho Gao:
