MoMo at Robinson's Midtown: comfort food

MoMo at Robinson's Midtown always brings positive vibes when I eat there. It is bright and airy. The wi-fi and magazines are free. So are the Choc-nuts. The menu is sparse, but carefully planned and selected. The food is something you'd like to try, again and again. In short, it's a place you'd want to hang out with your friends.

From the viewpoint of this frustrated cook, the dishes at MoMo is also what I would have prepared if I had more time in the kitchen. Take a look at these pictures:

Kung Pao Spaghetti. An Oriental-inspired pasta livened up with oyster sauce and nuts.

Good ol' pasta carbonara. MoMo's version is interesting because it has the yolk of an egg in the middle. Not heart-healthy, but yes, the authentic Italian version of the carbonara does call for egg yolk :)

Four-cheese pizza! A must if , like me, you love cheese!

Overall-rating: no-fuss food that's simply superb. Don't forget the desserts!
