Mad Momos is delicious, check them out

You may recall Mad Momos, the Himalayan/American restaurant and beer garden that opened a couple of years ago at 14th and Parkwood in northern Columbia Heights. I went there last weekend and had a fantastic meal -- you should check it out if you haven't been.

Their signature dish is the momo, a type of dumpling, but my friend and I had already had those (they're good) so we opted for some variety. I got a curly kale salad with feta, walnuts, momo crisps (little crunchy bits) and craisins, and it was great. It was big too, I also ordered a cilantro-pesto flatbread naan, sort of like a mini pizza, with house-ground sausage -- also awesome, but since the salad was so big I saved most of it to take home. My buddy got a ginger beef noodle bowl with vermicelli noodles, sweet onions and ginger, which was similarly delicious. Here's the full menu.

They have a good drinks menu with some tasty craft beers, wines and cocktails. I had an IPA by Smuttynose called Finest Kind -- the server said it was their most popular beer and it was really good. I think even non-IPA likers would enjoy it.

That, plus sitting on the patio on a nice evening, made for a good time. I recommend checking them out if you haven't been.



    Geography trivia tonight at Mad Momo's 8pm.

  2. This section of 14th actually scares me. Is it safe?

  3. Yes, but like any part of any city, be sensible. Don't walk around drunk at 3 am or something, but otherwise it's perfectly safe. There are generally lots of people out and there's a bus stop right there, plus cabs.
