Steamed dumplings momo in Sikkim.

What I remember most about Sikkim? Apart from the snow capped Himalaya I remember the food.

Steamed dumplings stuffed with meat or vegetarien called momos are the best.

I liked a few places where the momos were served. In Gangtok a Tibetan restaurent on the first floor and one place with "take away" rolls and momos, both situated on Mahatma Gandhi Marg.

The momos remind me polish dumplings stuffed with cabbage and mushrooms. I missed only a drink made of beets called borscht. This could be the best set of food in all North India. My favorite borscht was replaced by a beer. Dansberg Blue from Yuksom breweries was the best substitution.
I found my best momos made home in Pelling. The plate of 8 dumplings ( almost everywhere are served 8 pieces ) had had compelling taste. The place resembled a barn and was located between two popular guesthouses in Pelling.

    powoli odkrywam, że w kuchni azjatyckiej są duże braki,
    jak już biali ludzie w Europie wymrą, to co stanie się z ich kuchnią ???
