Steaming hot dumplings, spicy chilli chutney and a shop always filled with crowds – nothing describes Dolma Aunty Momos in Central Market better than this.

10. Changezi Chicken 

Their signature dish is the hot and spicy Changezi Chicken, which is made on a huge pan and is cooked on low flame for hours. The meat is tender, while the flaming hot gravy is a war on your taste buds. If your stomach is as weak as your taste buds, we suggest taking a Digene after.

Timings | 1 – 11 PM 
Meal For Two | Rs 600
