11 Jul Momo in John & Sally McKenna’s Guides
We were delighted to receive a glowing review in John & Sally McKenna’s Guides “10 Holiday Secrets” recently.
Harry O’Neill and Kamila Bystrzonowska had been working around the restaurant scene in Waterford for a few years before they ended up working together in Waterford’s seminal bar, Geoff’s, on Michael Street. The germ of Momo was probably sown there and then they met chef Ronan Joy, who has worked with Kevin Aherne in Sage, in Midleton. Together this team have applied a single minded focus on sourcing, seasonality and great cooking. Look out for monkfish roasted with a dehydrated black olive crust, served on a great tasting bacon and fennel risotto; homemade fish fingers with Duncannon Smokehouse salmon filled with cream cheese, dill and Doherty’s smoked cod; crispy shoulder of spring lamb with cumin spiced potatoes. This is an exciting and exacting approach and shows great confidence and surety of vision from this team.
