Thursday Treat: MOMO X HanTing

IMG_2989 MOMO inspires HanTing The concept of back-to-back doesn’t only occur in the music business but in gastronomy as well. We witnessed a perfect example at MOMO.

Executive chef of MOMO, Hariprassad Shetty, welcomed Han Ji -chef of Michelin star restaurant HanTing in The Hague- in his kitchen, and they challenged each other for a virtuoso dinner fusing Eastern and Western flavours.
