Dinner at MoMo Cafe

@ mirandablue
The MoMo! Gourmet

My mother had her 67th birthday last week and we had dinner at MoMo Cafe in Eastwood together with my 2 siblings.  We don't usually make a fuss about birthdays but my sister was also leaving in a few days so we decided to go out for dinner.  Of course, Fritz was also there---he loves walking around the air-conditioned mall.

I shared the MoMo! Gourmet with my sister.  It's a bowl of Arugula mixed greens with roasted garlic shiitake mushrooms, candied walnuts, fresh white cheese with raspberry-balsamic vinaigrette dressing and garnished with sliced oranges and hard-boiled eggs.

Most of the dishes are for sharing so we didn't order much.  I ordered my favorite appetizer---the melted crab and spinach 3 cheese dip.  It is served with garlic Parmesan toast, tortilla chips and veggie sticks.  And because of the wait, the waiter served us some garlic bread with spread, on the house.  My mother loves meat.  She had the sweet & smoky Hickory BBQ riblets---it's fork tender and off the bone, with party rice, topped with onion rings.  The meat was moist and juicy.

My brother preferred fish so we got the pan-roasted and walnut-crusted cream dory served with spinach cream risotto and lemon anchovy hollandaise sauce.  We had MoMo's own frozen iced tea in dalandan and blueberry in tall glasses.  It was a great meal altogether.

Hhhmmm...I've been wanting to eat corn on the cob. I love El Pollo Loco's corn, so sweet. Overall, the presentation is great.

We recently at at Mr. Jones, MoMo's "brother," so I guess they pretty much have the same price range. I love the look of the foods, but I guess the family aren't really big fans of fine dining. Ang mahal eh!
