Dumplings served in Tibet are completely different from others you've tasted. They are called momos. These are hard and salty, deeply dried, and filled with yak meat and streamed vegetables. There are also vegetarian momos with onion, carrot, and chives.

There are thousands of momos recipes, as almost every Tibetan family has its own. You can try cheese, spinach, just steamed vegetables, and chicken momos as well.

They taste best with special sweet sauces. It may sound strange, but the perfect drink for momos is a cup of hot chocolate. The most traditional beef momos are usually consumed during Losar—Tibetan New Year celebration.
