So one thing I love to do on the weekend is BRUNCH!!! Give me a good group of friends, some great food and never ending mimosas and it is a great day!!! On this holiday, I want to share one of my new favorite places to go on Sundays, MAD MOMOS in Petworth!!! A couple Sundays ago, Mad Momos was kind enough to host a group of bloggering buds to come have brunch. I had been once before with a friend on about 8pm for their brunch a couple weeks before… yes at 8pm… because their brunch goes until 10PM!!!!! Let me repeat, they serve brunch until 10PM on Sundays. If that was not enough for me to love them, they then brought me a “mad-mosas” (they also offer “mad-marys”) a PINK mimosa… PINK from the delicious GUAVA!!! YUM!!! And a love was born… But I digress.
I had the pleasure of sharing a meal with Eden of Garden of Glam, Sam Huang of Mad Momos (one of the co-owners) was our guide through the (delicious) madness, Carlis of Spicy Candy DC brought us all together, Lashawn of All Things Fashion DC and Haya of Good Good Gorgeous.
They were kind enough to let us try their signature mad wings – “juicy tender chicken wings in our special sweet and smoky glaze, sprinkled with toasted cumin and fennel seeds” to start off the meal. I’m not a wing girl really so I only ate one but I enjoyed it, the flavor was very tasty. Another good starter treat we didn’t explore this visit but I have to plug are their momos… and of course you ask, What’s a momo? Well in their own words (aka copied from their website and menu) = “a momo is a tasty dumpling native to the Himalayan region. Almost all cultures have some variation of a momo – a savory or sweet stuffing wrapped in a sheet of pasta. Our unique artisanal momos are made on premise. We offer a fun, new, “mad” twist on the traditional momo with creative fillings, pasta and our dipping sauces complement each momo meal. Our meats are all house-ground.” But back to the meal at hand… BRUNCH!!! While the momos are tasty… their brunch is equally delicious and should be celebrated and shared which we did!
- their signature “king” cardamom French toast served with nutella drizzle and bacon ($10.95)
- the champion, two eggs, mad creamy grits, smash browns, bacon and toast ($10.75)
- smoked salmon and eggs open face on Texas toast, arugula, smoked salmon, cheddar and eggs ($11.50)
- fish taco platter with tilapia, garden greens, cheddar, black bean and corn relish, avocados ($11.25)
- their signature shrimp with mad creamy grits – jambalaya shrimp with sausage over slow-cooked creamy grits ($11.75)
And devoured it all!!! And enjoyed the never ending flow of mad-mosas that graced our table!
My skirt is one I made from an old dress that I cut the top off of but you can find a similar maxi skirt from the Gap. The blouse was an excellent recent find at Hysteria in the Boutique District in Alexandria. Rachel Roy top, normally about $348 but on sale for about $60!!!! SCORE!! Leather jacket is an old favorite I found back in the day at Target.
Overall it was a great day and I would love to thank the wonderful staff at Mad Momos for making us feel so special!!
Thanks so much and I will be back soon!!! Also shout out to our girl Carlis for bringing this all together!!! Okay no more photos!!! But to see more on how we brunch… see our lovely brunch with the DC Repatriate!!! —> La Brunch Vita!!
