Momos have become one of the most popular street-style specialties of Delhi. Soft dumplings filled with veggies and meat, and paired with a spicy chilli garlic sauce - what's there not to like? There is a stall selling momos popping up at practically every nook and corner of the city. So, when a Korean blogger tried eating momos in Delhi, we immediately sat up and took notice. Popular YouTuber 'Inwook' hails from Korea and he was on a trip to India recently. He had earlier shared videos of himself trying multiple street foods and sweets from the country. This time, a video of him trying momos in Delhi has gone viral. Take a look:
"Trying momos for the first time," he wrote in the header. The Korean blogger said that he tried the 'Indian dumplings' at Sarojini Nagar market in Delhi with an Indian friend. He said that he liked the name 'momos' that they were called by. He then sampled a variety of dumplings, including chicken, veggie and cheese ones. Then, he shared his honest review to Delhi's favourite street food. "I'll be honest, it wasn't special. It's just a dumpling," he said.
