We like big balls and we cannot lie, you other eaters can’t deny. What can I say? Momo Ghar knows how to serve them up big and in style.

Hailing from the humble origins of Saraga International Market, Momo Ghar is home to Columbus’ favorite dumplings. This little shop brings the Nepalese staple to the ever-growing, diverse food scene in the city.

Gimme some mo' / 📍Momo Ghar

To order this dish, grab a seat at the lunch counter and watch as the staff prepare your big bowl of comfort. Order the momo jhol and watch in awe as they serve up eight perfectly plump little dumplings onto a bed of the most rich, thick, and savory red sauce.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

Take a bite of that little pocket of joy and sit in silence as the warm juices start flowing from within that first bite. Let some of it run down your lips and chin as you surreptitiously attempt to wipe away any evidence of your reckless eating with childlike wonder.

Watch as the steam is released from the dumplings and rises along with your desire for more. Order like a regular and get yourself a side of naan to go with your dish. Rip off a piece, soak it into the sauce, and be prepared to be blown away by the fullness of the umami taste.

It just might  make you want to order another dish to-go. Or to dine-in. Either is good.

Momo Ghar is located in Saraga International Grocery at 1265 Morse Rd. and inside North Market.

Condado Tacos open in select locations after closing its doors Tuesday

Condado Tacos is open once again after closing its doors to the public Tuesday following an employee walkout Monday night. Polaris and Clintonville locations remain closed until further notice.

Employees at the Polaris location walked out Monday after refusing to fulfill a catering order by the Ohio Highway Patrol, according to a press release from Condado Tacos Wednesday. The employees who walked out were given the opportunity to not work on the order, without repercussion, if they didn’t feel comfortable, according to a statement provided by Linda Powers, Condado Tacos director of marketing.

The order by the Highway Patrol was placed at the Condado Tacos Polaris location on the fifth-straight day of George Floyd protests in Columbus. Floyd’s death was ruled a homicide following an incident where a Minneapolis police officer placed deadly force on Floyd’s neck with his knee. The incident has sparked protests across the country, including Columbus.

After reaching out to Condado’s PR agency over email, the contact stated that their team has “parted ways” with the business. 

Wednesday’s statement by Condado says they “value different points of view,” but, “choosing not to serve a particular group, in this case law enforcement officers, in itself is discrimination and goes against our core values to welcome and serve everyone.”

Read the full statement here.

The End of the Road?

As the economic impacts of COVID-19 continue, we are beginning to see the effects take their toll on Columbus eateries. Here's a list of some of the changes taking place.

The Sycamore+Cosecha Cocina  

Grow Restaurants, the company which owns Harvest Pizza, has listed The Sycamore and Cosecha for sale. While there hasn't been confirmation that the restaurants won’t make a reappearance in some form, Chris Crader stated in Columbus Underground, “It’s a lot of work to re-open after the pandemic and we have a considerable amount of interest in these two properties so it doesn’t make sense to open and then close again so quickly.”

Miller's Ale House

Both Miller’s Ale House locations are closing. The Florida-based company has removed mention of the Ohio locations from their websites.

Flowers and Bread Co.

In a recent article with Columbus CEO, owners Sarah Lagrotteria and Tricia Wheeler announced the closure of the cafe portion of their business. There are plans to expand the flower and bread workshop portion of the business under the new name Flower and Bread Society.
