Home Around the World: Momo’s, London, UK


The Momo's experience in London, UK, involves North African cuisine, an eclectic African and diaspora music programme (that pulls in major stars and up-and-coming artists alike), beautiful decor and a relaxed boho-luxe ambiance. The restaurant/café/outdoor terrace/basement bar/disco was opened in the late 1990s by Algerian-born Mourad Mazouz.



As a creative entrepreneur, Mourad's CV is very impressive: he has opened several experiences centred around food – 'restaurant' alone is not an adequate description – (e.g. Sketch, a tribute to superb gastronomy and cutting edge art); he has founded a record label, Mo’Zik, that brings together Eastern, Western contemporary and traditional music and; he has published The Momo Cookbook, containing authentic North African recipes.



Find out more about Momo's (and upcoming music events, including the Africa Shock Party) on their website.
