Pan-Asian concept, Momo Canteen, is expanding with the launch of its third branch in Canary Wharf, via CDG Leisure. We have secured a unit at 11 Westferry Circus for the restaurant, which is expected to open in early December.
Momo Canteen, which also has branches in Barbican and Commercial Street, is the brainchild of Singaporean restaurateur Sidney Liu. It specialises in dishes from all over Asia and has garnered a loyal following, particularly with communities who miss the taste of home.
With a commitment to authenticity, the restaurant employs chefs from all over the continent, such as Thailand and Japan, to recreate an array of diverse regional flavours and culinary techniques.
As well as signature dishes like laksa, Korean fried chicken and Thai red curry, diners in Canary Wharf can look forward to new additions on the menu, focused on high quality, sustainable produce.
Sidney Liu, Momo Canteen, said: “This location is ideal for our new lunch concept as it gives us the chance to trial unique dishes such as fresh, protein-rich salads which will cater to a health-conscious workforce.
“As we are an Asian team, this is the cuisine which we love the most and are most familiar with, which means we don’t compromise on flavour and believe we offer excellent value for money.”
Our Leisure Consultant David Kornbluth, who brokered the deal on behalf of the previous occupier, said: “Momo Canteen has secured a brilliant site and will benefit greatly from the strong lunch time trade in Westferry Circus. Not only is it a great addition to the area’s restaurants but it also meets the current market demand for quick service dining concepts which offer an elevated quality of food.”
