THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Momomo Restaurant Review: The black concrete block on Waialae Avenue may look mysterious, but inside it's a welcoming izakaya. Opened in June 2004 by a transplanted Nagoya businessman, Momomo has a varied menu filled with small appetizer-like dishes, more hearty entrées and all kinds of snacks like spicy Taiwan-style ramen and crab-filled fried rice. In Japan, the design trend is retro country inn with modern twists, and that's what Momomo is, with dark wood walls and elevated horigotatsu rooms and very contemporary hanging pendant lamps. Order from the well-edited saké menu to go with your parade of traditional (katsu) and trendy (mozzarella-cabbage gratin!) dishes. A good-looking young staff dressed in black is at your beck and call as late as you want---Momomo is open until midnight.
