This place use to be MomoTea, but had been brought by Mt Albert BBQ Noodle houes, but continues to serve bubble tea, hence the name MomoTea
My brother P decided to take me here as I had not been here before. We were decided whether we each should order a dish for ourselves or order to share. We ended up to ordering a few dishes to share, so that I could try a few items out at the same time.
There is a selection of small and larger tables, but found the restaurant to be slightly cramped for my liking.
Braised Hapuka – a lot of vegetables in this dish. The braised hapuka was deep fried. I am always weary when things are deep fried in a batter as the protein tend to be fairly thin and you end up eating this oily thick batter. The ratio of protein to batter was fine
Roast Duck – delicious, our duck was fairly lean, it came wiht a lot of sauce which you can dip your duck into if you wanted to. The duck was succulent and tender
Chilli Chicken – this is a cold dish. similar to a drunken chicken, but had a soy flavour to it rather than rice wine. The chicken was tender and succulent. Nothing to fault here
Combination Fried Rice – nothing to fault here. The protein combination included beef, pork and chicken.
Stir Fried Eggplant w Season Bean – was delicious, but personally found that it was a bit too oily for my liking. the eggplant was soft while the beans still had a crunch to the.
Chilli Pepper Pork Chops – was delicious, and is perhaps the first one where it was relatively spicy, other times you get these to be salty with a lot of garlic. The pork chop pieces were fairly large, which meant there was only enough for one each. I was hoping I could have another one.
Great place if you are after something cheap yet delicious. Food arrives fairly promptly.
