It had been one year since we had come back. We opted not to have the omakase, though chef kinjo puts on a great show and is amazing. We enjoyed sushi at the bar ala cart and had a tremendous dining experience. The sushi chefs are warm and helpful and the fish is the freshest in Houston. I love me some kata robata, but this was simply stellar. More

Angus steak fajitas tasted very good and portion sizes for all meals was more than enough. Salsa for chips tasty with good spice. Not sure I liked the seat yourself. I made a reservation but only table available was in the outdoor patio so it was very cold and had to wear our jackets. There wasn't a drink menu so unsure of what cocktail options were available. Overall prices slightly high. More

I have never wanted to meet the Chief until I ate at Momo's. The food is deliciously flavorful. We had the Chickpea Waffle and Jerk Chicken for our main dish. Every bite was a lively mix flavors. The most anticipated dish of the evening were the smores, crafted with freshly made bourbon marshmallow by Chief Moon. I absolutely love Momo's restaurant. More
