This shop is not to be confused with the grocery store Namaste Momo Cottage Deli which has been based in Jersey City for a number of years. In fact, it looks as though it may offer some competition to the John F. Kennedy Blvd store. For lovers of desi food however, this new arrival is surely a win.

For those wondering about the name, the term Namaste is often used in India as a way of politely greeting someone or saying hello. Namaste is typically accompanied by a gesture of placing the hands together in a prayer position at the heart center, typically with the palms pressed together and the thumbs gently touching. The eyes are often closed, and the head may be slightly bowed. This gesture is known as anjali mudra, and it symbolizes the union of the individual self with the divine.
