MORE THAN JUST DUMPLINGS...
The Momo Shack story is two-fold. Firstly, we have one of our team members, Leezen, who moved from Nepal to the US at the age of 10. After moving from Nepal to the growing city of Plano, Texas, he quickly started to forget his native roots and traditions in his aspiration to “fit in” and adjust to this new world.
Almost a decade later, Thang, Daniel and Leezen connected during their undergrad years at UT Dallas and soon became really good friends. Coincidentally, Daniel and Thang also moved to the US at the age of 10 from Mexico and Vietnam, respectively.
Throughout Leezen’s younger days, his mom would make momos at home which would always be a big hit with his friends and coworkers. That’s when the initial lightbulb went off. What started as a broad idea during our college years finally became a reality on December 23, 2017.
We are now a family and friends owned pop-up business working on sharing our culture and serving you the unique concept of momos!
