Den of Delights.

Perfect for that summer evening, this moroccan taste and sense explosion is nestled inside a miniature jungle just off Regent Street. Another fabulous creation from Mourad Mazouz who was also the man behind my favorite Sketch, Momo will certainly not disappoint.

A sneaky glance at the menu confirmed that nowhere else was going to suffice. Plus, it was contained within golden frames and my magpie tendencies couldn't resist. 

Snuggled in amongst the undergrowth it was time to peruse the menu. 

And what a menu! Upon being told to 'order for both of us' (music to my ears because any food envy or decision making issues are immediately eradicated), it was over to the tapas section with a selection of delicious hot and cold mezze to choose from.

Before the food arrived, I decided it was high time for a little adventure. First on my travels I came across this fabulous armchair which I would like immediately transported to the corner of my bedroom please.

Next, I went to say hello to the chefs who were a tiny bit preoccupied (can't think why) and breathed in the delicious aromas wafting throughout the room.

Turning around, this is what I was confronted with; a buzzing 'den of delights' and the venue of the party I now just have to have!

In search of 'the facilities' I arrived at the top of some stone steps leading to what I hoped was not a minotaur-housing maze,(although that would be a rather great addition to my adventure!)

At the end of the corridor I was met with these delightful doors and some more brilliant glowing stone-work.

Having eventually (it really didn't take that long) found the toilets, I had to unashamedly do the standard loo snap because these keyhole doors really did cut the mustard!

Deciding it was probably time to return to our table, I made my way back, admiring the neighbouring plant on my way...

... and found some delectable dishes awaiting me. Lamb sausages, chicken skewers with a yoghurty mint sauce, grilled peppers and steaming pita made a perfect combination which I would happily have eaten twice over!

On our way out we bid goodbye to this red-capped fellow and emerged back into reality.

One last wander down Piccadilly Arcade and we were ready to call it a night (or evening). Momo definitely has not seen the last of me!
