We had a great experience at Mokomandy on a weeknight as 3 adults, 2 children and a baby. Don't be fooled by the shopping center neighbors that are fast food chains. This is a unique, culinary experience. The menu has items that are in groups of small, medium, and large servings. Under small, the deviled eggs and platter of 3 Korean potroast sliders were perfect for children to share. (There is an interesting kids' menu, but we opted for items on the regular one.) Under medium, the fish of the day (mine was tile fish) was wonderfully prepared with a sweet potato-pecan-mushroom hash that was truly divine. Shrimp Etoufee was a treat, owing to the cajun tradition. Under large, the chap che (beef-mushroom-noodle dish) and the poutine (fries with sausage & gravy) were grandiose enough to share a portion with others.
As if all this wasn't enough, we finished off the meal with a small french press carafe of coffee to share, and several items from the dessert menu that were cajun-inspired. The rum bread pudding topped with a banana caramel ice cream was a stand-out as was the pineapple upside down cake with a cherry cream mousse. Beignets are also on the dessert menu but we did not try them.
The beer, wine and drink list is extensive. The beer list is so lengthy, but it helps to know that it is arranged from light to dark, top to bottom. We brought our own entertainment accessories for the kids, but an even greater hit were the bendable squiggle sticks that were given to the children by the wait staff.
It was a pricey evening, but sooo enjoyable. Make sure you make reservations. The wait staff even called us after we returned home to alert us to one of our possessions left behind.
