Finding this hidden momo shack is half the fun.

The lowdown

Finding this vaguely illicit momo shack is half the fun. Look for a makeshift, glass-partitioned arcade of sorts, home to the You and Me mobile-phone shop, and follow a twisty route that would make for a good Martin Scorsese tracking shot. The satchel-shaped momos (get the beef-and-chive) fall somewhere in size between xiao long bao and Georgian khinkali and are delicious doused in the high-octane Tibetan chile sauce called sepen.
