In July, Grace and I played host to Tim & Ming of Nuffnang during Blogopolis.
Knowing Ming love for food gastronome, we decided to take him to Momo Restaurant within the Grand Hyatt hotel. We've been there before for a birthday dinner and it a very intimate restaurant. Food was of the highest quality and very delicate.
For Tim and Ming, I organised a personal chef experience with the Behind the Scenes option with Momo excutive chef Greg Malouf. Momo is different to other restaurants where it is a "Family Sharing Style" experience. The 4 courses are brought out one at a time which is then separately served to individual plates. The food is Modern Middle Eastern which has plenty of exotic spices and flavours in all their dishes.
Please forgive me that I forget what we had back in July but hopefully below are some photos to do it some justice!
After the first course has been served, we were handed Momo aprons to wear and invited to the kitchen to see first hand our dishes being prepared by Greg Malouf himself, his head chef and team. It was quite a personal affair where he took us through how each dish is prepared, how he grows his own flowers for the dishes and choice of music in the kitchen! After the tour, we were sitted back to our table for mains.
At dessert, Greg comes out to share a glass of red for the table and a whisky for himself. He talks about his different projects he works on with restaurants in Hong Kong, personally flown to London to cook for a private party, etc. Great stories!
The night finishes with each of us choosing one of his 6(?) cook books and coffee table books with a personalised autograph from Greg.
If you are lucky enough, I recommend popping into Momo for a great dinner night out!
