Logo Momo is a very typical Tibetan bread, which is both fried and steamed, which seems to be unique to Tibet, as we’ve never seen this in any other culture’s bread. Though unusual, it is simple and easy to make. In Tibet, logo momo would be eaten at lunch or dinner, with some vegetables or maybe shaptra (fried meat). In central Tibet, people eat logo momo with a big piece of cooked yak meat that each person gets a chunk of and cuts pieces from, dipping the meat in sepen (hot sauce). Logo momo is different than the popular, similarly-named, Tibetan dumplings called momos.
