Motorcycle Journeys in Search of Food

Best Momos in Kochi at Shifu Momos Panampilly Nagar

Steamed, Fried, Schezwan, Manchurian, Afghani and even Cheese Baked” veg and chicken momos that taste out of world 😋, washed down with bubble ice tea and the nostalgic softy ice cream – all this is in a small shop overlooking a beautiful park 😍 in the posh residential-commercial neighbourhood of Panampilly nagar in Kochi.

As with most momos shops, Shifu Momos started in 2012 as a small roadside cart that has now grown into a bustling full-spec takeaway restaurant.

While most make good chicken momos, Shifu Momos have aced them both (veg and chicken momos) 💯.

Must Eat:
