We started our meal with the guacamole sampler. This gave us a chance to pick three different guacamole. From bottom to top in the picture below we picked the goat cheese with tomato chile and poblano peppers, the jicama with pineapple, chile habanero, and mint, and finally the garlic confit with bleu cheese, and chile verde. The goat cheese really stood out in contrast to the avacado. I enjoyed how each bite packed a punch. The sweet pineapple and jicama blend was my personal favorite because of the way it blended with the heat that came in late, and lingered on until the next bite. The bleu cheese had a lot of potential, but only a few bites actually got a bite of bleu cheese, the rest was just normal tasting guacamole.
Momocho is known for their margaritas so we each decided to try what many consider their best, the cucumber margarita. All four of us felt the amount of sour mix used in the drink was just too much. We asked if it was possible to get it remade, but we were informed that it was already premixed, and would likely taste exactly the same. This was a slight disappointment because we have tried this drink at Momocho before, and this time it really fell flat. As far as beer goes Momocho offers your standard Mexican brews such as Corona and Dos Equis.
Atmosphere and Service
The room was dimly light and the environment is full of flair. The picture at the top of this review is just a glimpse at some of the artwork that is posted up all over the restaurant. Momocho's atmosphere definitely says fun, but also has a very relaxed feel to it which we very much enjoyed. Our server for the night was outstanding. Her service was everything you would want and expect at a restaurant. She was friendly, funny, knowledgeable, and very helpful when it came to questions about the menu and the food. With service and food like we had during this dinner experience it is no wonder so many people rave about Momocho!
