Gone are the days when friends used to hang out over hot samosas at pakora stalls. It’s time for momos now! The roadside ‘halwais’ have lost out to momo vendors in many localities in Delhi. And there is no denying the fact that Delhiites love this snack.

What’s more, momos come in many a variety now — tandoori momos, mushroom momos, fried momos, gravy momos and much more.

Here are five popular momo joints from across the city, where you can stop by for a plate full of juicy, hot treats.

Also a favourite with DU students, its speciality is masala momos (momos tossed in tangy hot chilly garlic sauce and then served with hot soup; R80 for veg and R100 for non-veg).
