As with any street food experience, Mumu encourages you to embrace the spirit of sharing and explore a variety of dishes. Our culinary adventure began with the Grilled Black Baby Lip Abalone, adorned with chili, garlic, coriander, fish sauce, and brown butter, all topped with fresh chives. These delicacies were worth every penny, offering tender abalone bursting with an explosion of flavours that will leave you raving for weeks. Trust me, this dish is an absolute must-try.

Seafood Spring Roll (specials menu)

Mumu's daily specials menu that night presented us with a deep-fried seafood spring roll accompanied by a fiery chilli mayo dipping sauce. This dish, while not on the regular menu, was a standout; we found ourselves persuading neighbouring diners to order it because we aren't gate-keeping good food.

Prepare to be amazed by Mumu's Crispy Eggplant, coated in black vinegar. A creamy interior, crispy coating, and tangy black vinegar twist, this dish is a harmonious blend of textures and flavours that will keep you coming back for more. A classic Chinese dish done exceptionally well.

Served with fermented chilli relish and lime, these tender and succulent lamb cutlets exude a smokiness that envelops your senses. Don't hold back - get your hands dirty and relish every morsel.
