While Haymarket and inner west suburbs such as Burwood and Ashfield populate much of Sydney's dumpling scene, the northern beaches has something that isn't found too widely across the city: momos. The dumpling, which originates from Tibet, is one of the most popular dishes in Nepal — and for good reason. These round- or crescent-shaped parcels are often stuffed with the likes of ground meat (chicken, pork, goat, buffalo, yak or lamb), veggies, tofu, paneer or soft chhupri (a local Himalayan cheese).

And, luckily for Sydneysiders, Momo Bar serves up pretty good, hand-rolled iterations of these tasty treats. With two shops, located in Manly and Dee Why, Momo Bar is where you want to head for lamb momos ($12), ones stuffed with lentils ($11), chicken versions ($11) and even mushroom and parmesan dumplings ($11). It also offers some gluten-free alternatives, as well as poké bowls if you're in the mood to circumnavigate the globe in one feast.
