Mo Cafe - London, UK

Mo Cafe lies next door to its older sibling, Momo, the Moroccan restaurant.  They have other siblings, including Sketch in London and Almaz by Momo in Dubai Mall among others.  The cafe is hidden in the Food Quarter of Heddon Street just off Regent Street.  If you're looking for a light meal and real Moroccan tea you will find it here.  The atmosphere is dark and loud, and it looks like a traditional souk tearoom from Morocco with tons of colorful Moroccan lanterns in the ceiling. We had light Arabic appetisers, including harira soup (traditional Moroccan spiced tomato soup that has lentils, chickpeas, and minced lamb).  I liked their cheese briouats, goat cheese and herbal pastry, and their falafel. Years ago I had their Moroccan mint tea with pine nuts. Unforgettable!
