Cafe Momo, Manchester NH I loved it.

I had heard of the place, never knew exactly where it was and stumbled across it today. What a delight! It is very small… 7 tables with bench seating on one side, 1 table for 2 and 3 or 4 more tables in an adjoining room. It is painted in several different bright colors and has a happy feel. The menu was intriguing it appears to be a blend of Asian and Indian style. We started with the Momo chicken appetizer, 8 steamed dumplings with a small bowl of a spicy dipping sauce. Wonderful.I will ask for some extra sauce next visit thou. Next up was the hot herbed flat bread, sliced into strips and also good. Entrée selections were Tass Lamb and Brown Guy Special. The lamb was spicy (as requested) mixed with vegetables. The Brown guy was shrimp and scallops mixed with vegetables. Both beautiful in presentation and very tasty! Desert was Sikarni. A really thick spiced yogurt with fresh sliced strawberry. Very light and refreshing. The table next to us ordered a dish called Choila. (Jerked chicken with cilantro, red onion and chilies) Wow did that look good and they said it was fantastic. They commented that it tasted very much like a Thai salad. I must say I was quite jealous and can’t wait to go back and try it myself.
Apps $5.00 to $11.00. Soups $5.00 Entrees $13.00 to $16.00. Deserts $5.00. They do have 6 lunch items under $10.00. Wine, beer and 2 cocktails. Momo mojito and Cucumber cooler both $5.50
Service was good but a word of warning …When you entrée is ready they come for your app. plates.and they really want to take them:) Oh yes the other thing is the water. They serve water from a pitcher half filled with fresh (I think mint?) You’re either going to love it or hate it!
