Editor's Note: This week, the Rubin Museum of Art is releasing a guide to Himalayan shopping and dining around the city, with discounts for meals at Tibetan and Nepali restaurants. So we're shining the spotlight on some Himalayan dishes we've loved around town. Hit up these spots with the guide in hand for a discount off your meal. You can get your own free copy of the guide with admission to the museum; you can also enter our giveaway here to get it mailed to your door.
There's no shortage of momos in Jackson Heights, but these big ones are some of our favorites. The traditional beef filling is joined by greens and onion for texture, moisture, and some onion-y funk to draw out the beef's mineral flavor. They come in large steamed purse-shaped skins that offer just enough chew when you break into them.
Massive? Yes. Delicious? Absolutely.
