Mombar review

  • s

Moustafa gets a big review in New York Magazine; see the link below.

Think there's any danger of Manhattan hipsters showing up looking for Moomba?

  1. No, I think the danger is an inundation of hipsters looking for Mombar!
    But what an accurate review. It's really evocative of the experience of the place, and conveys the excitement of of discovering Moustafa's delicious and unusual food. I'm salivating. Thanks for the link.

      It's all over now. Eric Asimov just reviewed this place for the NY Times today. I was hoping to get there before the hordes, but it looks like I'm out of luck.

        The review in New York Magazine and Asimov's review in the Times are right on. I'm glad to have had the opportunity to tune into Moustaffa's gallery of eclectic art and exquisite cuisine before the madness that will now likely occur. It's one of the few the places that really deserves every bit of success it gets, though I suspect for Moustaffa, Fakia and Ali, success is defined simply by their customer's embrace of their culinary concoctions and their warm greetings.
