Choedup Thar and Lhakyi Dolkar, Glenside residents who were both born and raised in Tibet, recently opened a new eatery in the Market at the Fareway to introduce the local populace to delicacies from their homeland, writes Len Lear for Chestnut Hill Local.
MoMos of Tibet specializes in handmade, steamed or fried meat and vegetarian dumplings complemented by their original signature spicy and herb dipping sauces. Other menu items include smoothies, made-from-scratch Tibetan soups, and entrees.
The food is prepared in a commercial kitchen in Glenside with all-natural ingredients and no chemicals or artificial additives.
“We want to keep food natural so people can feel the freshness that we ate growing up,” said Dolkar.
The couple started their food business three years ago. They first sold their meals at local festivals and farmers’ markets, including Lansdale and Jenkintown. Now, they have secured a two-year lease with the market in Chestnut Hill.
“People would ask us where our store was, so we looked around for a good location for over a year,” said Dolkar. “Our former customers are happy now because they can get our products at any time.” Read more about MoMos of Tibet at Chestnut Hill Local by clicking here.
