mo:mo unites us all...

      I have been missing mo:mo awfully lot. How I wish there was this famous food chain with boastful mo:mo menu. Wouldn't it be awesome if KFC was called KFM reading Kentucky Fried Mo:Mo and Mc'mo:mo instead of Mc'donalds. They should declare mo:mo as our national food already. In the country where everybody is honking and stomping everything that divides us, its amazing that the petty things such as food unites us. Okay, I overstated, foods aren't petty things (I basically live to eat). Few days ago I posted "they should make mo:mo our national food already" as my facebook status. My friend Jack S'prw was first to reply saying "This is the right time. Constitution is being drafted. Aandolan garnu parla jasto chha :P / mo:mo party ki political party?"  I was like aandolan garnai pardaina. Nepal would revolt if mo:mo wasn't our national food instead. With everything going on in Nepal mo:mo might be one of those things which clearly unites us all. And if you are browsing (mentally) whether chicken mo:mo or buff mo:mo should be "the chosen one", I'd say you're such a buzz kill. Mo:mo is mo:mo, eat whatever suits your platter!!


     Those (juicy) dumplings feeds us all. From rags to riches. From Prachanda to Rajesh Hamal. From migrants to ex-pats. And apparently we are always looking for reasons to eat it. I mean c'mon each of you must have hosted mo:mo parties or been to one, couple of times. And all of us have once said "aja mo:mo khane khalko din cha." I simply deduce that we're looking for reasons to eat mo:mo almost all the time. And mo:mo helps us to socialize, all those jokes and hilarities that we share among friends while preparing those juicy dumplings are worth much more than the price we pay to go to this fancy restaurant in down-town to munch some fast foods. Or go to those dingy alleys of Basantapur and Patan, they sell some decently tasteful mo:mo with golveda ko aachar!!


     And don't we all let go of our inhibitions when we eat mo:mo. Its like we let our inner child out. I often stuff mo:mo desperately only to realize it is too hot. Now I can neither masticate, swallow nor spit out. Don't LOL, I know you've done that too. And don't we all love fried mo:mo, oh'well if its home made simply call it baasi mo:mo. Its utterly yummy!!


I declare momo unites us all;)
Do you have your own mo:mo stories?

  11. Really, we Nepalese eat mo:mo the most after rice. Also people don't go for next option when there is mo:mo on the menu.
