The Momo Cafe at Ayala Triangle has been around for some time now, and it was only last week that I got to revisit the place with a few blogger friends, for the UNIQLO event. It’s good to know that it’s retained the ambiance that I loved about it. I especially like how bright the place is, with natural lighting making it easy to take photos of food, lol. In tagalog, the place is very maaliwalas.
It was a busy day for Momo Cafe, with over a handful of media people and bloggers flocking the scene for the UNIQLO event. Despite this, we didn’t wait so long for our food.
Most of their dishes are made for sharing. This we didn’t know until the “San Francisco Style” Seafood Pesto Cream Linguine was served on our table. There were three of us, and we could barely finish the whole thing. Priced at 395php, it is well worth the price for the taste and the quantity served. The “San Francisco Style” Seafood Pesto Cream Linguine was topped with Fresh Basil and shrimps, and sourdough toast as sides. This proved to be a very tasty dish.
The Smokey Burnt BBQ “Beans & Franks” include a Frankfurter, two kinds of beans, double smoked bacon, party rice and coleslaw. I seemed to have missed the bacon in this dish, but the frankfurter did well with the party rice. Since you guys already know that I am not a big rice eater, it means that I really liked this party rice, okay? The coleslaw was ordinary at best.
The Steak Rubbed Roast Chicken was served with two pieces Chicken Leg Quarter (Bone-in), Party Rice, Roasted Organic Vegetables, Chicken Jus, and Grilled Corn on the Cob. The glaze on the roast chicken made it delicious, yet I would have preferred the chicken roasted a little bit longer as it appeared a little raw, and unlike steak, chicken must always be fully cooked.
I believe that the dishes I featured are relatively new menu items, since besides the “San Francisco Style” Seafood Pesto Cream Linguine, you won’t find it on Momo Cafe’s Menu on Munch Punch. I did find Momo Cafe’s updated menu on Raintree’s, a restaurant family that brought us Mr. Jones, Momo Cafe, and Stella, to name a few.
When going to eat at Momo Cafe, prepare to dish out around 300-700php, with dishes good for three. It’s a great place to eat with friends, especially when you’re not in a budget. I’ve always loved Momo Cafe since their Robinsons Place Manila Branch, so I’ll definitely come back for more good food and good hangout with friends.-HANA
