Doma Wang is a Tibetan who grew up in Kalimpong. As the chef-owner of several restaurants in Kolkata, Wang has tried to popularise what she calls Himalayan cuisine. This is the food of the people who live around the famous mountain range, including its foothills. Many of her influences come from her Tibetan heritage. For instance, she is known as the Momo Queen of Kolkata because she has tried to reclaim the momo from the mediocrity its national popularity has led to and return it to its Tibetan origins.
She is well known and well respected in the East and the North East but, has only a fraction of the popularity she would have earned had she cooked in Delhi or Mumbai.
