The origin story of momos is one of travelers, mountains, and migration. From high in the Himalayas down to the valley of Kathmandu, caravans of merchants journeyed for months conducting business between Tibet and Nepal. Meat-filled pouches steamed over a fire were the perfect road food for the long distance, arduous excursion. Today they are made in cozy family kitchens, watched over by a wizened matriarch. Wear the momo to protect and guide you in your journey. Momos promote cross-cultural understanding, wisdom and courage.
