Discovering an Oshawa Hidden Gem: Street Momo

I recently asked some friends for a fresh restaurant recommendation, one that I hadn't tried yet, but they were sure I'd dig. They highly recommended Street Momo, which is located in downtown Oshawa. It turns out that downtown Oshawa's going through a bit of a renaissance these days — the food scene's getting richer, and the heart of the city is really coming alive.

Street Momo was a new name to me, and the buzz of outstanding reviews had me eager to experience it firsthand. As soon as I stepped inside, the smells emanating from the kitchen were mesmerizing. The menu had so many selections, and I found myself wanting to try everything. My eyes were definitely bigger than my stomach!

As I ordered,  I noticed these little robots zipping around, serving food to everyone. It was wild — they knew exactly where to go, and they even had tunes playing, making it feel like a little celebration every time they brought out a dish. Watching these robots do their thing was honestly half the fun.

The Chicken Pakora was my first choice on the menu. As an appetizer, it was perfect - a little battered piece of chicken breast served with a delicious sauce. The taste totally caught me off guard; every mouthful was bursting with flavour — incredibly delicious!

The next dish was a server's recommendation, Chili Momo with Chicken, and let me tell you — wow! I have a rule: if there's Chili Chicken on the menu, it's a must for me. So, I went for it, and what arrived was nothing short of perfection. For those who might not know, a Momo is a classic Tibetan creation, essentially a steamed dumpling (this time packed with chicken), usually mingled with ginger, garlic, bell peppers, onions, and a mix of spices. The flavour was just explosively delicious, with the spice level so spot-on that it had me breaking out in a sweat. The portion size was also just right.

Finally, I ordered something I rarely order and was so glad I did. Prawn Low Mein was something recommended by the server, and she was right. It was just a great balance of flavour and spice!

The quality of the portions, spices, and ingredients across all the dishes we ordered was exceptional. It's always a delightful surprise to encounter food that defies your expectations. The greatest thrill I get from running this blog is the chance to explore and share about new and delicious eateries.

I am so happy to be able to experience this city’s evolving diversity. It’s a great time to come to the City of Oshawa. Street Momo is a true example of the change that is happening here. The meal had me leaving with a big smile on my face!

I highly recommend Street Momo; try it - you will leave happy... and very full!
