  • 10min

It’s a loud Saturday night in Seoul, the capital of South Korea and one of the largest and busiest cities in East Asia. A Tibetan man living alone in his temporary home in this Korean city remembers his real home far away in the Himalayas. With no friends and family around in this new city, food connects him to his past and his people. The making of a night’s dinner takes the lonely man on a journey that evokes both his senses and emotions. Making of Momos are usually a family affair in the Tibetan culture, where the whole family gathers in the kitchen to prepare this dish.
