   The VILLAGE VOICE describes a Tibetan restaurant that's opened in New York City.  The restaurant serves Nepalese/Tibetan stuffed dumplings called "momo."  There are quite a few "momo" hits on Google.  "Tenzing momo" means "food of the gods."
   Will OED enter "momo"?


   Marguery was the name of a restaurant in Paris, then later in New York City.  The famous dish was "filet of sole Marguery," and there are several Google hits.  Again, there is no OED entry.
