foodie yalla newYalla Momos
Looking for a casual joint with scrumptious snacks? we have heard that recently opened is Dubai’s first eatery which specializes in a famous Himalayan street food snack: dumplings. Since the place is small and seating is limited, perhaps better suited for take away! Have your dumplings steamed or fried, veg or non-veg – the choice is yours! Quickly prepared, have them steaming hot and spicy.
