Entertainment Book 14/15: 25% off total bill (up to $30 value)
After hearing about the world of momo’s from RB (click here for full Wiki explanation), I have been wanting to try this dish that belongs to the Nepalese. So what better way than to be surprised with a bonus entertainment book offer for a Nepalese restaurant with great ratings on Urbanspoon! And not to mention, a name of “Mo:Mo’s”.
The restaurant is on the corner of a row of shops, and is actually quite easy to miss if you are not familiar with the area. So take heed, and slow down when you know you are nearing the address.
Since there was only the two of us for dinner, we made a decision to have the highlight of Momo as an entree, and order some other mains to share so that we could get a variety of dishes to try. These were the final decisions:
- Mo:Mo (Entree size)
- Seafood Curry (yes I know, why would one order seafood curry from a Nepalese restaurant?! My bad)
- Lamb mince and fapar ko roti
Minced lamb over buckwheat pancake cooked in the oven then finished with a garlic yoghurt sauce
The momo was served with a sauce on the top which had a nice garlic tone to the flavour. The momo itself reminded me of the texture of Chinese dumplings (particularly Shanghai dumplings or 小笼包), only without the soup. I enjoyed it, but would have enjoyed a tad more punch in the sauce.
The seafood curry was probably the disappointment of the night for me. The seafood was a little fishy, and the consistency of the curry was a tad thin for me (and maybe it was meant to be). I think the tummy would have been better utilised if we had ordered something different.
The lamb mince that RB chose was spot on. I loved the combination of the buckwheat pancake and the lamb mince, which had a nice flavour, and finished off with that yoghurt (not usually my thing, but hey, people change no? *wink*). Overall, my favourite dish for the evening.
We had to wait for quite a while for the food to be served, and being rather tired from a long day, this didn’t sit particularly well. The lighting was a little strange too – bright, dim, bright, dim. I could not figure out what it was and unfortunately it started to annoy me.
Service was friendly at this establishment – nothing to fault, really.
Overall, it was a relatively pleasant experience at Mo:Mo’s. I wouldn’t mind heading back to Mo:Mo’s sometime to try some of the other dishes.
