This Tibetan food truck on Broadway in Jackson Heights makes both fried and steamed momos, each with a plump, thick exterior and vegetable, beef, or chicken filling. Our favorite is the fried, beef variety doused in a combo of spicy, red chili sauce and white sauce to cool you off. You need both for full effect. Mom’s also has a location off of Queens Boulevard in Sunnyside, in case that’s more convenient to you than Jackson Heights.
