Perched against the Himalayas, at a crossroads between the ancient cultures of modern-day India and China, Nepal has a unique culinary heritage, drawing on influences from east, west, north and south then adapted to their own often harsh, mountainous environment. It sounds like an exotic, unreachable mystery – but thanks to Nepalese Mo Mo House you can taste authentic Nepalese cuisine in southern Sydney. Hit Princes Highway towards Rockdale – or take the train to Rockdale station, just across the road – and you’ll find this happy hideaway, perfect for a cosy dinner out or a replenishing feed after a long day or some exercise. The dishes on offer range from hearty Indian curries to spicy Chinese rice meals, with plenty of fresh flatbread, fragrant rice and Nepalese specialties (the goat and lamb are particularly special) in between and some sweet desserts to finish.
Goat Curry was to die for! Had the Momo dumpling plate with steamed Buff, Chicken and vegetable, and shared two Nepali dinner set to share between a party of four. Twenty dollars a head and worth every cent.
