Charlotte’s First Nepalese Food Truck is Here – The Momo Truck


Charlotte is quickly becoming one of the most diverse cities in America, with people moving here from every state and an ever increasing number of countries from around the world.

With increased cultural diversity comes increased culinary diversity – especially in the food truck world.

Jay Subedi moved here in 2008 after spending the majority of his life in Bhutan and Nepal. He earned a bachelors in civil engineering from UNC Charlotte and started a small grocery store on Central Ave., but soon realized that his true passion was making people smile through sharing his culinary heritage.

“I’m interacting with the customer’s life, rather than being in a cubical – getting that ‘high-five’ or ‘bam’ or ‘OMG’ is a game changer – the way that people love our food and want us to do better makes all the difference,” said Subedi.

He is now the proud owner of Charlotte’s very first Himalayan-style food truck – The Momo Truck.

Subedi noted that while he has toned down the spices for the American palate, he also has true Nepalese followers who have commented, “we got the real taste from Nepal, man, this is the real stuff…”

His most popular dish is the Momo Nepalese dumplings stuffed with meat, herbs, and spices, served with a zesty sauce (ask for the orange sauce if you’re into ridiculously hot stuff);

Every week they post the schedule of locations they’ll be serving at;
