mad momos, DC Review & Giveaway #2

Since its opening late last year, mad momos has become a hot brunch spot.  My friend and I showed up this time on a Sunday afternoon at 12:30 p.m. and it was packed. We were seated on the first floor and the front windows of the restaurant were completely open because it was a spectacular day.

While taking in the fresh breeze, we were confronted with the decision to order one mimosa or the bottomless. Hell, we decided to get the bottomless this time. The mimosas are made with guava juice instead of orange juice, which gives them a sweetness that works perfectly with the sparkling wine.  So much better than a traditional mimosa!

The menu changes seasonally, but the brunch items looked similar to the ones I saw many months ago. The vegan choices include a wrap, taco platter, and big salads.

Since I'd already tried the wrap (and loved it!), I went with the Sun Salutation Taco Platter. The soft tacos were loaded with tofu scramble, mixed greens, black beans, corn, and a spicy sauce. They were great. They were served with smash browns - potatoes fried perfectly. I was a happy camper.

My friend ordered the Scrambled Tofu Mad Wrap, which was very similar to my dish, but in a wrap with kale and sunflower seeds.

On another visit, I ordered the Vegan Thukpa noodle bowl for dinner and absolutely loved it as well. It was a hearty bowl filled with tofu and noodles along with kale, carrots, and zucchini in a smoky soy marinade.  Although they no longer offer this specific Thukpa bowl, they offer another one that looks just as delightful.

Other vegan dishes available for dinner include the Compassionate Vegan Momos and Vegan Tacos with tater tots. There are also Mezze dips with pita points including housemade hummus, baba ganoush, and Himalayan style dal.
