1. Kathmandu Chinese Fast Food
The Patel market in sector 15 is famous for the ultimate fast food experience and the highlights are always noodles and momos. We always prefer eating momos roadside at cheap rates but what if we get a seating in the budget. This is exactly what’s offered here. They have steamed/fried, paneer/veg, chicken/ mutton all types of momos.
Address: Booth 223, sector 15-D Chandigarh
2. Rohit Chinese food
Famous for fried momos, this is another place with cheap rates and best quality at the same time. They never fail to disappoint you when it comes to certain dishes like noodles, momos and cheese chilly. They serve the best-fried momos. Also, the steamed veg momos are no less. We don’t prefer spending much when it comes to street food. So I guess this is the right place then to chit chat and satisfy the taste buds.

3. Momos Wala
There are three stalls of momos in the open area of the Sector 27 market. All three are worth your taste and cost. They also serve delicious spring rolls. They literally bring the typical street food style in action. Standing beside the stall, gossiping with friends and having different types of momos one after the other is what we love and will cherish these memories forever after college.

4. A1 Dumplings
A1 Dumpling is a cart located in Sector 35 near ‘Scene kya hai’. They offer whole-wheat dumplings with the best taste and reasonable prices. The dip is apt and the shape resembles little cute samosas but the taste is divine for sure.
So this seems taste along with health and that too in a budget which is very attractive being a student at-least. I recommend you to try this out and let us know how you liked it.

5. Sector 7 market
You can see several momos stalls near the Friends Hotel and Burger Uncle in Sector 7. We always prefer the one right in front of the Friend’s restaurant. Be it momos or spring rolls, you can’t resist falling for this little junk monster.
5. Shake Plaza, Panjab University
Amongst the many gastronomical wonders at Student Centre, PU, is MOMOs!
The creative spin they have given to the flavours, especially the salsa dip, just the right amount of spicy and tangy. When those steamy hot dumplings come served on cabbage leaf, I’m already drooling all over.

Their name as well logo is so damn unique. They have such a huge variety of flavours being offered with no compromise on the quality. The chilly chicken tandoori momos, veggie momos and steamed momos here are irresistible. The chilly chicken momos have ample of chicken stuffing inside and paneer momos are also fine. The experiments they have done with our beloved momos are tremendous and deserve and applaud. Even when the veg platter is not worth the cost and ‘Kala khata’ is also not that good but I guess the place does justice to the basic variety we are attracted.
