It’s Momi again at Brickell. After successfully opens a ramen and gyoza place, the Momi Ramen team now opens an oyster place at Brickell . Located at 1040 S. Miami Ave. in the former Market at Rosinella space, they have opened a place called Market at Momi in the past Friday. Market at Momi will feature all cold preparations of oysters, mussels, and other raw friendly items dressed in variations of ponzu and yuzu dressings. Chen says he’ll also be deploying his kamameshi pots for a handful of tableside dishes. Here is more information about Market at Momi :
According to Urban Daddy :
“You’ll find it where Rosinella used to hold court. A cozy little Japanese fish market with subway tiles, fresh seafood stacked on ice, and mismatched tables and chairs for consuming the aforementioned seafood. It’s all pretty simple, really. What you’ll want to focus on here is the oysters. Fifty different kinds at your disposal. So if you happen to find an open seat at the L-shaped bar, take it. Then, get friendly with a bottle of sake while watching their master shucker take apart 20 oysters per minute. Now, should you find yourself with a hankering for something more, opt for the lobster roll. Or go with the mussels that’ve been cooked in a generous pool of sake. Rumor has it that the broth packs a considerable alcoholic wallop.”
According to New Times :
“Chen, who quietly opened the corner oyster and raw bar this past Friday, already has 30 east and west coast varieties on ice, as well as the difficult to source and succulent European flat oysters from France dubbed Belon. “By the end of the week we’ll have 50.” Why so many? “You need 50, otherwise you’ll be the same as everyone else.” His refusal to do things differently and not care what people think is what made his neighboring ramen shop, Momi Ramen, an instant success which, in spite of its constant menu change and refusal to take credit cards, keeps people slurping noodles on a nightly basis. But good news: Momi Oyster takes credit cards, so you can do a different kind of slurping without having to worry about paying now. The sliver of a space is reminiscent of a fish market one might encounter in Japan. Tiled walls are half black, half white, and ornamented with a lonely blue marlin. Seven two-tops with mismatched chairs make up half of the dining room, while the other 14 seats are at the marble counter, which gives you front row seats to the raw bar and oyster show. Regardless of Coast, oysters are priced at $4 a pop, and there’s no happy hour planned. The Maine lobster roll, also priced at $21, stuffs quite the generous portion of the succulent sea creature between perfectly buttered and pillow-like bread. ” written by Carla Torres.
