Sitauted beside the River Usk in Newport is the exquisite Mojo, which acts simultaneously as a fantastic bar and an elegant restaurant.
Having been awarded the OpenTable Diner’s Choices 2016 award, guests should aptly expect a high level of standard at Mojo, which it delivers in spades with a sublime food offering.
Complete with locally sourced ingredients and independent wines, diners can expect an opulent experience at Mojo, and when calling in advance with a tastecard they can enjoy a feast fit for a king without having to pay a royal ransom.
The menus change with the seasons, as to best exploit nature’s freshest ingredients, yet with each visit diners will be treated to a sublime dining experience. Examples of the fine cuisine can be seen in previous favourite starters, such as the rich Gravlax Salmon, enhanced with Plymouth gin and crème fraiche, the delectable poached pear, accompanied with walnuts and a Welsh Blue mousse, and the irresistible Welsh mussels, enriched with lemongrass, coconut and chillies.
Exceptionally excellent dishes have also adorned the main menu, with delicacies like the succulent matured sirloin steak, partnered with brisket, braised oxtail and Barley creamed mash, the scrumptious monkfish, served with mussels and a delightful bisque, and the veggie friendly medley of root vegetables, paired with sweet potatoes, malt and Wye Valley honey ice cream.
Concluding such an enjoyable meal would usually be a difficult endeavour, yet Mojo’s heavenly desserts are available to round things off with a sweet tone. Tantalising treats known to have grace guest’s plates in the past have included the divine panna cotta, presented with star anise, orange and rum, and the decadent chocolate plate, topped with ginger, blackberries and honeycomb.
An unforgettable experience for a date night or simply a wonderful location for a special occasion, Mojo is certainly a memorable location that serves regal tastes in a relaxing environment.
