Our Story

My love of MoMo came from watching my father make, cook and serve them to family, friends and people from all walks of life. 

I was born in Nepal to Tibetan parents who fled during the Communist Chineses occupation. My parents, along with thousands of other Tibetans, were scattered across the neighbouring lands of Nepal, India and Bhutan. Scattered but bound together by His Holiness Dalai Lama. 

It was extremely tough during this time so, to survive, Tibetans living our our community, including my parents, started making and selling MoMo in the Tibetan co-operative restaurant and to local Nepalese. 

From here, my father became a kitchen boy and then a cook to the many trekkers and mountaineers that were flooding to Nepal to fulfill their dreams of scaling some of the highest peaks on Earth. He was my inspiration for starting my own business selling this delicious food. I arrived in Toronto in March 2012 and began the journey of TC Tibetan MoMo.

We began at the Wychwood Farmers' Market with other Tibetan women volunteers. Slowly and steadily we grew and are now part of six markets in Toronto with our own store front. 

MyMo are not just food. They are made with love and hold many memories of my dear father, family, friends and life in Nepal. 

I am very grateful to my family, friends and regular customers who continually support me with encouragement, loyalty and kindness. 

Thank you for hearing my story. I hope you enjoy your MoMo.
