Momo Italian Kitchen

I'm a little behind on my blog post this week - what can I say, it's the week before spring break and I had midterms in my grad school classes!

Anyway, last week, Meal of Food Friday took us to Momo Italian Kitchen, a hidden away Italian bistro in North Dallas. The restaurant seemed a bit out of place in the shopping center. It's located next to a very suspicious looking massage place and doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside, it was very nice - white table cloths, view of the kitchen,  and a nice waiting area (where we hung out for about an hour). Despite the long wait, we had a great dinner! I don't mind a wait as long as there is an out of the way place to sit. It's BYOB (with a small "corking fee"), and the host was nice enough to put our drinks in the fridge for us while we waited.

This was a good choice for a Lent Friday. There were several meatless options, so I had variety to choose from. We started out with the complimentary bread with pesto and the mini pizzas - I claimed the mushroom pizza because it was meat free and I LOVE mushrooms.

Pic credit goes to the momo's website (along with all the other pic credits for today) as I was too excited to eat my dinner to remember to take pictures.

The appetizer worked out well as I couldn't decide between pizza and pasta for my entree. I went with the Maccheroni alla Vesuviana, which is basically pasta with tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella. It was all really good! Everything was fresh, hot and tasty.

No lie, I ate all of it.

I would go here again in a heartbeat. The only bad thing that I have to report is the long wait. That being said, they have a huge patio area that almost doubles the size of the restaurant. On a nice evening, it would a great place to sit outside and enjoy some good food!
