#London Bloggers Supper Club: Mommi Raw Bar + Grill

The girls and I headed out for our monthly bloggers brunch club. After seeing newly opened restaurant Mommi in the Timeout Mag, I thought it was a perfect excuse to head out to clapham for a change. With a beautifully sunny day, we made the most of sitting outside – Tip – which makes for better lighting for photos.
Mommi is very chic. Their menu follows suit where Japan meets Latin America. We came for brunch however but their main menu of sharing plates also look delish.

Something new I tried was the fresh pressed sugar cane raw juice. Now obviously at £3.5 a glass its probably a bit more than you would pay for overseas, but hey this is London. Choosing to be different and having the ginger and yuzu, it was refreshing. Most of the dishes are designed for individual portions, however when you want to try a bit of everything then its also not difficult to share either.

The frittata was nice, however I didn’t think there was anything that shouted out special. Maybe the yuzu soy mushrooms need a flavour boost. The ceviche was great, fresh and well balanced in flavours. The confit duck dish had a few hits and misses. The egg was perfectly cooked along with the duck, however we found the plantain on this and both the pancakes were severely undercooked and dry. It was not exactly soft enough to eat. This is a real shame, as I am quite a fan of this fruit. We all loved the pancakes. I would without a doubt reorder them. The touch of toasted almonds and the crispy quinoa brings it a deliciously crunchy texture. Overall, Mommi is a great concept. I just think with a tad few changes the brunch can be on a whole another level. The dishes served were all beautifully presented and a great portion size for the price. We were also very kindly treated a glass of bubbles on the side.
