Queens is known for its diversity and wide range of culturally-influenced cuisines, and the neighborhood of Jackson Heights is no exception.
The neighborhood hosts the biggest Himalayan food and cultural festival, giving visitors a taste of some of Jackson Heights’ best Tibetan, Nepalese, and South Asian restaurants at the annual Momo Crawl, and it returns this month on Sunday, September 24!
Now in it’s 11th year, this year’s foodie haven will involve even more, newer restaurants than ever before–attendees will have the chance to try momos from over 30 of the neighborhood’s restaurants!
Food trucks participating in this year’s Momo Crawl include:
- Amdo Kitchen
- Gangri Karpo
- Potala Fresh Food
- Mom’s Momo
In order to participate in the crawl you’ll need to purchase a Momo Crawl Passport. Passports are $15 and the money goes to Students for a Free Tibet, which works in solidarity with the Tibetan people in their struggle for freedom and independence.
Passports can be purchased online here and picked up as early as 11:45 a.m. on the morning of the crawl.
Passport holders will also receive a ballot to vote for their favorite Momo after the crawl (voting ends at 4:30p.m.), with the winner receiving the highly coveted Momo Championship Belt.
Alongside the dumplings, attendees can enjoy endless entertainment and cultural performances put on by local artists and groups.
