Located on 4828 MacArthur Boulevard NW, Momo’s, a charming Taiwanese cafe, is now serving bento boxes and Japanese cheesecake in the district. With everything from eel to spicy crawfish, their lunch sets are instagram-worthy entrees that will undoubtedly make it to your feed. We recommend their popcorn chicken and their Taiwanese sausage, but that’s because those of two of our go-to snacks there.
During our last visit, we got their sausage and their short rib, but the latter was a bit too tough for our taste. Maybe it was just an off day though? It’s so tough to judge because takeout/delivery is such a different experience. Plus, we were half an hour late to pickup our food so that’s totally on us.
Momo’s Cafe is known for their massive toasts and delicious teas, but the star of the show was most definitely their Hokkaido Double Cheesecake. This dessert is a new addition to their menu, and it’s hands down, one of the best cheesecakes we’ve ever had the pleasure of devouring. Think light, fluffy and not too sweet. It almost feels like you’re eating cloud – sounds strange, but you’ll understand once you try it firsthand.
So, here’s what you’re gonna do. Start with getting dessert to go because I can’t imagine anyone disliking Momo Cafe’s Hokkaido cheesecake. And if you’re hooked (…you’ll probably be hooked), you can try some of their other dishes your second time back.
