Dorjee Momo, Washington DC

This week we have a guest review from Washington, DC, for Dorjee Momo.

Lamb Momo

A short stroll from the U.S. Capitol, a refugee chef has set up shop cooking a personal ode to Tibet.  Housed on the second floor of a bagel store, Dorjee Momo pop-up offers hot pots (by reservation only), and a small selection of plant-based and animal-based dishes.  Me, I go for the lamb momos.  Six pan fried dumplings dressed with 21-spice sepen, a thick Tibetan pepper paste tinged with Szechuan peppercorn.  For our vegan friends, try the Sunflower Buns, stuffed with a mix of spinach, glass noodles, tofu, mustard oil and topped with a basil-cilantro sauce.  Dorjee Momo is open Thursdays-Sundays at the Bull Frog Bagel Shop near Eastern Market through late summer 2018.

Postscript – I checked out Chef Dorjee’s story on the restaurant’s website and it is pretty amazing.
