Momowich – Shoreditch

It’s only my second visit to Momo’wich. I’ve taken a late lunch break today and am pleased to see there are a few chairs free on this occasion so I can eat in.

As I approach the counter I’m served straight away and am asked what I’d like, “Perhaps something spicy? Try a sample of Malaysian chicken curry?”

Selection of curries, noodles + rendang sandwiches


It’s pretty cold today. Something spicy sounds appealing, although – after the gorgeous Pad Thai I had on my last (and first) visit, I’d already got my eye on the beef rendang sandwich and tod mun fishcakes.

But I like to keep an open mind, and was persuaded by the hot and spicy taster. It had a real kick to it. One Malaysian chicken curry with salad it is.

Pad Thai – £3.95 for this ‘medium’ portion (it’s £5.50 for a large)


The Pad Thai here is also pretty special: fresh, hot noodles topped with ground peanuts and chilli sauce, and a bit of side salad. And a very reasonable portion for £3.95 that doesn’t over-face.

An outstanding little cafe, even by Shoreditch’s high standards.
