Neighbors and friends have been recommending this restaurant for months; I am very glad we finally made time to meet friends here for dinner. We ate Asian style, sharing every plate, so all four members of our party were able to sample an exciting mix of styles and flavors; every new small plate that arrived had another taste twist that we thoroughly enjoyed. After the first few plates it occurred to me what Korean and Cajun food have in common: spices. Fortunately for us, all of our party have a taste for spicy food; you won't care for this menu if you like your food bland. I highly recommend the jalapeno hush puppies (an old personal favorite), the kimchi pancakes, the Korean pot roast sliders, the wild boar bowl, and the P.E.I. mussels. All of these were loaded with complex flavors making for a delightful evening. Mokomandy boasts a very large, impressive list of alcohols. My companions and I particularly enjoyed the orange ginger rye cocktail. I can't say that their variation on a sazerac cocktail is an improvement over the New Orleans original recipe, but with so many other successes to the evening, this was no problem. The service was very pleasant and attentive. I thought the prices were quite reasonable for the amount and variety of high quality food and drink we enjoyed. Reservations are highly recommended as this is a small restaurant that was entirely full on a Friday night. It's a bustling place, adding to the excitement, but not a quiet, romantic dinner spot. We will definitely go again.
