Ting Momo

Stopped in for lunch today. Yak momo plate ($9) came with garbanzo salad and cabbage that seemed lightly pickled or dressed. The yak was nicely flavored but a little dry, granted it is a lean meat but there was no juiciness to the dumpling. The wrappers were on the thick side, and although I appreciate that cranberry might be a good flavor with yak, the craisins stuck in the tops of the momos just seemed odd. Salads were nothing special. I would have liked some spicy chili sauce; the little bit of soy based dipping sauce they gave wasn't very interesting. Also had thukpa, or noodle soup, which was nicely spiced but lukewarm in temperature.

I may give them another try and just get sides of different momos with no salads, but there are probably a lot of better choices for dumplings in the ID.

I don't know how authentic Ting Momo is or hopes to be, and i don't know how Tibetan cuisine differs from Bhutanese or Nepali. When I lived in Bhutan, you could get a plate of momos for less than $1, often with a cup of soup or broth, and always with a spicy condiment. I was hoping Ting Momo would bring me back to those times, but it fell far short.
