A staple of Bayport’s nightlife and a haven for end-of-the-day drinks, Momo’s Too is the quintessential sports bar that serves up pitchers of cold draft beer and plates of hot wings for good times after a hard day’s work.
Recently, the menu has been revamped to for a more gastro-pub feel in addition to the bar classics.
We stopped in on a busy (but socially distanced) Saturday night to try some of the new dishes, and they did not disappoint.
Thai chili popcorn shrimp with Asian slaw
The first thing you’ll notice about the new menu is the Asian infusion with a flurry of wasabi-spiced tuna dishes (tuna tacos, tuna salad, tuna wontons). Owner Rich Comunale wanted to freshen up the menu with fish dishes as a South Shore place.
The shrimp is cooked in a light, almost tempura-like coating and is covered in a delightfully spiced sauce.
The slaw is the real surprise in this dish, offering a refreshingly light (not over-mayo’d) pairing to the heat of the shrimp.
Buffalo chicken empanadas
Momo’s had always had beef empanadas on the menu with a dusky, cumin/chili powder sauce. The buffalo chicken empanadas offered a more familiar American taste for patrons looking for an inventive way to enjoy wings.
