MOMO Mayfair, London

    Secluded in a pedestrian alley off Regent street, Momo has been delighting dinners since 1997. One could easily think that by now it should feel tired and very déjà-vu but not at all; under the management of charming Yacine Bouaouni, Momo is as cool today as it was on the day it first opened, and the food is as delicious.

    Today MOMO consists of four spaces: restaurant, café, outdoor terrace and basement bar/ disco including a highly talked about live music program. The décor is impeccable and transports you to and exotic world more expected in One Thousand and One Nights than in central London. You can even do a bit of bazaar-style shopping at the Mo Café, full of interesting books, lamps, CDs and many other items, all of which are for sale.

    Our waiter, Alex, was efficient and good humoured, helping us navigate the menu, explaining the ingredients and the cooking process. At the end my friend went for the chicken tagine and I chose the Momo grill. Both dishes were generous and full of flavour. We accompanied them with a fresh, crispy rosé from the Rhone Valley. For dessert Alex insisted we had to have the milk pastilla (delicious crispy pastry with custard) and the Momo chocolate plate, which would be up to the scrutiny of the most demanding chocolate lover.

    Before leaving, we sat on the terrace for a while puffing away on our sheesha; mine strawberry flavoured, my friend’s choice was melon. It may sound childish but I have to confess that it was a lot of fun. I’ll be coming back soon.
