Momoda Overview

Traditional Chinese street food with an unexpected, modern twist awaits Canberra diners at brand new Asian restaurant on the block - Momoda. Meaning ‘kiss, kiss' in Chinese slang, this unconventional eating house and bar on Northbourne Avenue exudes a moody vibe of red neon lights, high stools and plush carpeting, ideal after work drinks with friends. Like a cheeky Momoda kiss itself, expect a punchy menu with every mouthful created to taste, love and share; sit back with a cocktail of choice and snack on small plates such as Peking duck gua-bao, with fennel, Lebanese cucumber, shredded leek and plum. Those with larger appetites can delve into 14-hour slow braised ox cheek, Bukit Mertajam curry, tofu puff and sweet potato; teamed with Momoda fried rice, fish roe and shiitake mushrooms.

Best Known For

Mongolian kangaroo spring roll, Sichuan chilli salt, wombok and ginger salad.

    We then shared a peking duck bun and a king brown mushroom bun. They are petite but they’re packed with flavour and ingredients that worked perfectly together. Don’t expect a bao because that’s not what you’ll get. The fillings are served in mini brioche buns, which adds a richness to them and differentiates them from buns you’ll find at other Asian restaurants in Canberra.

    What’s great about Momoda is that it’s an eating house, so if you just popped by for dessert, you won’t come off as crazy, you’d be welcomed with open arms! Like a cheeky Momoda kiss itself, every mouthful we had at Canberra’s newest establishment was created to taste, to love, to share.
