momos by hom
8848 Momo House is the invention of Hom Pyashi, Nepali ex-pat and proud new Aussie. Homesick and craving his familiar comfort foods, Hom built a restaurant and our number of locations is steadily increasing. Now he can have momos any time he wants and even better, share them with other Nepali ex-pats and introduce them to Aussies.
When you come to 8848 Momo House, expect to feel uplifted and warmly welcomed. Bring your friends, eat and drink and have some laughs. Above all, expect 100% satisfaction. We wouldn’t have it any other way because we want you coming back over and over again for mo’, mo’, mo’ momos!
Momos... the great social levellers
Let me tell you a story (it may or may not be true, but does it really matter?)
Once upon a time…
Arich man travelling through the plains of Nepal felt hunger gnawing at his tummy. Unable to find an upmarket restaurant to soothe his pangs, he wondered what on earth he would do. That is, until he smelled delicious aromas wafting from a street vendor’s cart.
“What is that incredible aroma?” he asked the woman tending the cart.
“Here, try,” she said, and passed him a small bowl containing plump, tender dumplings coated in a rich sauce.
One taste and the man was enamoured! “What are these?”
“Momos,” the woman told him.
The man continued eating until he was fit to burst. Never one to miss an opportunity, his entrepreneurial nature fired into action and he hired the woman on the spot to bring momos to his magnificent banquets … quite the Cinderella story, in fact.
Soon, momos became so adored by high society that they became a social leveller across the land. Rich and poor people openly shared momos and smiles in the streets and villages, getting to know one another and bestowing kindness and happiness all around.
Today, 8848 Momo House embodies that same spirit here in Australia. Momos bring people together for fun, good times and conversation. Every toothsome bite into a pillowy, flavourful momo brings a smile. We invite you to experience the warm hospitality, the joyful fun and the belly-satisfying delights we offer every single day.
