Welcome to Momo!
London's original Arabic Den
When Parisian-Algerian restaurateur Mazouz arrived in London in 1995,
among the first things that he did was look for a place to eat his homey couscous.
He couldn’t find any until his Vespa took him to Heddon Street, and at the time it
was a dark semi-abandoned walkway located off Regent Street in West end, London...
Today Momo encompasses of Music, Food and Visual aesthetics consisting of four spaces: restaurant, café, outdoor terrace and basement bar/ disco including a highly talked about live music program.
Momo Restaurant Familial opened in 1997.
"The A list have raved about Mourad Mazouz's Moroccan food for 10 years now.
By rights, Momo should have been taken over by the bourgeois crowd, but, somehow,
it hasn't. That must be down to Mazouz, who is effortlessly cool.” The Sunday Times
Our North African and Mediterranean fresh
dishes are created by Chef Philippe Agnello.
“Starters range from traditional briouats and zaalouk to fusion dishes like
scrumptiously sweet sea-fresh scallops with beetroot, and mixed seafood with
falafel in a light saffron sauce. The usual tagines and couscous rise to new heights
here. Our chicken couscous was fabulous: marinated cumin-infused grilled breast
with earthily spiced broth and tender veg; harissa with coriander; and astonishingly
light, almost silkily fine couscous.
An experience to savour” TIME OUT Eating & Drinking Guide 2009
