From Chef Sau Del Rosario of M Cafe and Chelsea Market & Cafe now comes MoMo! Food + Drink in Robinson’s Midtown, Manila. I have to admit this is my favorite hang-out these days, as it is almost walking distance from our office. Just a few of the reasons why I like this place:
1. Bright and chic interiors
2. The coffee comes with free ChocNut
3. I can eat here with only one hundred fifty pesos and still feel posh 😛
4. Free Wi-Fi
5. Free use of the internet on their single LCD monitor
6. Watching the world go by on Pedro Gil Street
7. Totally sinful desserts!
What can I say, MoMo has this fondness for all things ChocNut. Photo above shows the ChocNut Valrhona (P109), a molten chocolate cake topped with whipped cream and chocolate syrup. They also have the ChocNut smoothie called the MoMo Blast.
And the ChocNuts displayed in their counter jars.
I really don’t know why trendier restaurants have edged out mainstream ones like Red Ribbon and Goldilocks in incorporating ChocNut in their offerings. There is more in ChocNut which reminds us of our childhood. This local chocolate is love 😉
MoMo has pizzas and sandwiches priced at P250 up. So far. I’ve tried their pasta and brunch-all-day and they seemed a good deal.
Nothing says comfort food more than this Meatballs & Cheese Pasta (P149) . Plus, I get my daily lycopene fix too!
Their tapsilog (P139) has more than tapa, sinangag and itlog. It also has tocino (and atsara!). Plus, the scrambled egg had herbs and melted cheese, which now turns this into an omelette 😀
I really dig their three-layer Oatmeal Bar. This is the best dessert I’ve tried in MoMo, and it’s only P55.
The Banana Nutella Waffle (P109) was the only one that didn’t meet our expectations. Pieces were unevenly cut (you could use a finer knife) and waffles were stacked so high that they fell when touched. Two sorry-looking slices of banana were covered in chocolate syrup, and nowhere did I savor the taste of Nutella 🙁
Toblerone torte, mini black forest cake, lava cake, smores bar, carrot cake… I promise to come back for the rest of the desserts. They look good! 😛
