A new Nepalese dumpling shop specializing in momos — dumplings filled with meat or veggies that are common in the Indian subcontinent — will be the next to join the Detroit Shipping Co. food hall's line up.

Detroit Shipping Co. managing partner Petro Drakopoulos said the husband and wife team behind Momo Cha lived and cooked in Nepal for around seven years, and later ran several concepts in Ann Arbor.  The new restaurant could be open as early as May.

Drakaopolous added that Momo Cha is taking over the stall that would have been operated by Bread Meats Bread. Those plans fell though after the Windsor-based sandwich shop was denied an investor visa by the U.S. government.

That leaves one open spot at the Detroit Shipping Co., which is also home to Brujo, Bangkok 96, and Coop, among others.
