Momo Night a Huge Success

Last night BCF held the first ever Momo Night at Mt. Everest Restaurant. BCF supporters came out in force to learn how to make the delicious dumplings!

The owners of Mt. Everest Restuarant gave us a fantastic lesson on how to make momos and then let us loose to try our hand.

Although our first attempts ending up looking a bit more like tacos than dumplings, with practice we wound up with three plates of (almost) perfect momos.

After the momos were steamed in the kitchen we had a chance to sample our wares. Tasty!

As a nice surprise, Mt. Everest offered a gift certificate to the evening’s best momo maker. Margaret Hageman walked away with the top honor. Congratulations Margaret!

If you would like to try your hand at making momos we’ve included the instructions from last night’s event (with some helpful handwritten notes) below.   One of last nights attendees, Andrea, has also posted a blog of the best momos in Thimphu. If you’re heading there in the near future be sure to check these spots out!

How to Make Momos

If you really love momos don’t forget that you could be eating them all the time if you lived and worked in Bhutan as a teacher with The Bhutan Canada Foundation. We’re hiring now.  Apply online today at
