Date of Last Visit: Saturday, February 20th, 2010
The Victims: Nigel, John
The Damage: CHEAP. Like £6 or £7? (With just tap water, happily provided.)
The Background: My friend Mireia and I have been taking some photography classes at the London School of Photography. Let's hope it rubs off. During our intro course, I kept trying to get her and our other friend Larry to come out to dinner with me every night after class. Denied! Too tired, too busy. (To be fair, so was I. Dinner always sounded great at 6:30 p.m. But after three hours of class, I just wanted to go home.)
Luckily during our weekend course, I found some willing victims, and suggested to John and Nigel that we check out Mooli's during our lunch break. (Mireia had to zip off to a fashion show, where her champagne Champagne Penet Chardonnet was being served.)
Mooli's is bright and fun and cheerful. So too are the staff, who applauded my "advanced" selection of the mini goat mooli. Why goat is not more popular, I don't know. At some point last year, I declared 2009 the Year of the Goat, but it never came to fruition. Maybe that will happen this year. Friends, embrace goat. It's delicious. (I've just checked the Mooli's Web site and there's a big announcement strapped across it…The goat mooli is now available! See…all the cool kids obviously like it.)
I round out my order with a pork mooli.
The Food: I have no clue what was in the goat Mooli. Besides for the goat. But whatever it was, it was freaking delicious. The pork was good too, but simply not as delicious. (And it was a bit messier, which was no one's fault but mine.)
John and Nigel–who I don't even know–kept saying how cool the place was and how good the food is and what a great choice this was.
And I agree.
The Verdict: Love Mooli's! Love having two great meals withing 24 hours. (Kikuchi and here.) Food gods, smiling upon me.
