“THERE’S NOW A PLACE OFFICIALLY AND ONLY FOR DUMPLINGS IN COLOMBO,” after that tweet popped up on our timelines, we dug deeper to find out about this little spot: Momo’s by Ruvi. After, for two weeks, following their journey on Instagram, we finally walked into Colombo’s only place dedicated to momos.
Have you come across a place where you fell in love with it just as you walked in? This was, to us, one. It’s cute, quirky and adorable. Teeny, tiny but filled with love and smiles. Tucked away at the end of Majestic Avenue, opposite Unity Plaza, Momo’s by Ruvi not only brings you the most delicious dim sums in town but they are quite punny, too!
As beef was sold out when we visited, we opted for chicken (Rs. 390) and prawns (Rs. 440), both steamed with Sambal and Chilli Soy Sauce. Chicken momos had a generous filling of chicken accompanied with ginger, garlic and celery. While we loved both the dishes, if we had to choose one, prawn momos get our vote! Steamed to perfection, prawns were delicately wrapped and beautifully presented!
For drinks, we ordered Peach Fiesta and Strawberry Punch both priced at Rs.300. While the Peach Fiesta was so refreshing and the perfect drink to beat Colombo’s heat, Strawberry Punch accompanied sweet strawberry flavours which Nathan loved the most!
Momo’s by Ruvi also offers you cheesy momos filled with their imported mozzarella cheese. The iced tea also consists imported tea powder. Everything here is handmade by a Nepalese chef and brought to you with love.
The staff and the owners here are so welcoming! If they aren’t quite busy, they’d chat with you for sometime sharing their experiences and encouraging you to share yours.
Cute ambience, delicious momos and sweet, homely people, we loved our time at Momo’s by Ruvi. We loved it so much that we bought another two chicken and prawn dishes back home.
