New York City is seriously blessed when it comes to many types of cuisine, none more than dumplings.

Seriously, is there anything more comforting than a bowl of steamed dumplings doused in soy sauce on a chilly day?

This Sunday, November 6th, get ready to gorge yourself on some seriously tasty momo, which are Himalayan dumplings, on a leisurely stroll around Jackson Heights.

The 5th annual Momo Crawl is a walking tour of the neighborhood, with stops along the way at food carts and restaurants that will be selling dumplings for just $1. 

Every momo vendor– over 20– in Jackson Heights is participating this year and will be offering Beef, Chicken, and Vegetarian options.

It doesn't get better than that. Head to Diversity Plaza (37th Road and 73rd Street) at 2 p.m. to purchase your Momo Map, which goes for $5, to let you know where all the stops are.

You have until 5 p.m. to inhale as many $1 dumplings as you can before everyone returns to Diversity Plaza to cast their votes to conclude who makes the best momo in Jackson Heights. 

If you reach food coma status before 5 p.m., you can head back to the plaza early for some momo-themed festivities. Mohans Tattoo Inn will be doing free momo tattoos and Sangay Salon will be styling free momo hairdos (not sure what that would entail but it's free!). 


There will also be live music provided by DJ LS Jangbu Sherpa, performances provided by the NY Business Center for New Americans, and other appearances by student groups.


Don't miss this yummy celebration of Himalayan heritage!
