Dinner @ Momo Restaurant

It's Paalo's birthday so we're off to celebrate with a very overdue visit to Momo!

Since there's been such a gap between visits, the menu has changed so all the dishes are new to us but it does start the same way

with an array of wonderfully fresh vegetables served with hummus, mini pita breads and olive oil, dashed with a drop of pomegranate molasses.

As it's a Saturday, you have two degustation options - Arabesque (your choice of two entrees, two mains and two sides) or Moorish (all entrees, your choice of two mains and all sides) - and as this is a celebration (like we really need an excuse) we've opted for the Moorish.

I'm also going to add that the lighting in these photos are horrible and really don't do justice to the food and if you really want to see what the food looks like, then go and eat there!

First Course:

As with all the courses they are silver served, which we both think is a really lovely touch.

On the left is a jumbo prawn, still lovely and juicy inside the crumb coating - the feta adds a creamy sharpness that works well with the sweet prawn.

The sweetbreads on the right, were very soft and delicate, a good match to the earthy flavour of beetroot

Second course:

A pleasant dish on its own but was overwhelmed by the deliciousness of its companion

It's hard to imagine how something so small and simple could be so utterly delicious. We both could happily sit down to a dinner consisting of nothing but these goat kibbeh. The meat was juicy and tender, the spicing and flavours combined perfectly.

Third Course:

There's one thing we've decided after tonights meal, we won't wait so long before we come again!
