>    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"?

Yes, it will. The first cite we have now is from 1970, if you'd
