There are a few new eateries in town that will delight all the foodies visiting us. The most awaited for is Mumma, a modern fusion restaurant in the heart of Chamonix serving delicious Asian dishes with South-American and Mexican touches. Starters include 'Crab & jalapeño rice balls with Parmesan, crispy lettuce and spicy ponzu mayo' or 'Pickled cherry tomato & melon salad with soy-roasted pumpkin seeds'. As their mains, you can try 'Pancha Abotia pork & cabbage roll with pickled hon shimeji mushroom and gochugaru & garlic sauce' or 'Fried whole dorade royal with salsa verde and braised greens'. There are also lots of vegetarian and vegan options, including the yummy-sounding 'Soy & plum baked carrots with yellow curry aubergine, rice crisp and macadamia nut'. Open every day from 18:30 to 23:00.
Having made waves in Chamonix over the summer, the pop-up Le Shack has decided to stay and is opening this winter. This open-air beer garden and tapas bar will be kitted out with stoves and blankets to serve delicious drinks and snacks. Asian food is also strong here with gyozas, tempura, sushi and curries on the menu.
The four-star Hotel Le Morgane, in Cham Sud, are also opening a new restaurant this season. Le Comptoir des Alpes will serve Franco-Italian Alpine cuisine made with fresh, local produce. Risotto, grass-fed beef and fish from the surrounding Alpine lakes will all be served.
One of our favourite private chefs in the valley, Roo from Pom Pom Catering, will be hosting pop-up events throughout the winter. Her homemade, flavourful, authentic Indian dishes, made according to her grandma's recipes, will be on offer once a month at the Big Mountain Bar. Keep an eye on our Events Calendar to know when the next pop-up will take place.
