Almaz by Momo

Located at level three of Harvey Nichols at the Mall of the Emirates, the restaurant is a great blend of innovation and tradition, ranging from food to décor.

The vibe inside this exotic Moroccan restaurant is pure North African warmth: bulbous tangerinelike lanterns, plush pistachio-colored chairs, funky Algerian rai music.

Few Dubai restaurants boast such an impressive pedigree. The restaurant was the brainchild of Mourad Mazouz, the man behind the London hot spots Momo and Sketch. And with style radiating from every corner, the question naturally arose: Does the kitchen match the design?

The best gauge of a Moroccan restaurant is its tagines, the complex stews that often balance everything-and-the-kitchen-sink ingredients, from meats to fruits to sauces. A simple version of kofta with egg hits the mark exactly. The kefta are lightly spiced and complemented perfectly by the soft blanket of egg and tangy tomato sauce.

The mechouia, a chunky dip made from soft-grilled tomatoes and peppers, flat-lined on the tongue. Better was the zalouk, a similar dip with an eggplant base, which was far more flavorful and mouth-filling. Also try the red olives, marinated in tomato paste and olive oil. Then, round out the meal with the mint tea and pistachio-honey-almond pastries.

’Almaz by Momo’, extends over several open plan rooms spread over an impressive 600 square meters. These include the Almaz restaurant, the Salon, the Juice bar and the Shisha room. Open on all days of the week from 10 am right until midnight. ’Almaz by Momo’ offers an eclectic blend of intoxicating music, inspiring menus and non-alcoholic cocktails.

’Almaz’ meaning diamond in Arabic, is a place that is best described as ’atmospheric’ offering various dining options.
