After trialling successful festivals in Melbourne, the Momo festival, celebration of exotic Asian cuisine had previously headed to Sydney for the first delicious time last April.
Momos are the Nepalese/Tibetan version of dumplings, and they are delicious! So, you will be pleased to know that the festival will offer more than 30 varieties, from buffalo, goat, lamb, beef, chicken and pork to vegan and vegetarian options. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Momo Fest has not been held at this point, but hopes to return in the not too distant future.
The event, on 18 April from noon to 10pm at Wyatt Park, Lidcombe, will also offer a full spectrum of entertainment, including international and local bands, DJs, multicultural performances, roving performers, kids entertainment, workshops and momo competitions.
Because of the restrictions currently in place, you will need to check again next year to see if the festival will once again be held. As a Sydney local, and owner of Sydney window cleaning, I know that I can't wait to sample the best in Momos next year! And, I am assured that the many Nepalese people that I know feel exactly the same way.
Until then, I am sure that we can enjoy the Momos without a festival, as drab as that may sound. To be sure, if you are also someone who enjoys the taste of Nepalese culture in Sydney, sampling the food, albeit without the crowd, is still something to be savoured!
