Welcome to Groupon Dallas! For our inaugural deal, $10 gets you $20 worth of grub and guzzle at MoMo’s Pasta, located at 3312 Knox St. You’re probably thinking, “That sounds great, but I’ve never bought a car or a computer without first reading the Wikipedia definitions for car and computer—I’m not about to buy a Groupon either without a briefing.” Well neither would we, and since this is everyone’s first Groupon, allow us to briefly explain how it works.
How Groupon Works
Groupon is a combination of the words group and coupon. Each day, we offer an unbeatable deal on the best of Dallas: restaurants, spas, sporting events, theater, and more. By promising businesses a minimum number of customers, we get discounts you won’t find anywhere else. We call it “collective buying power”!
If you want to get the deal, just click BUY before the offer ends at midnight. If the minimum number of people (10 for today’s deal) sign up by the end of the day, you’ll get a printable gift certificate in your inbox the next morning that you can use whenever you want (well, at least until the deal expires—today’s expires in six months). If not enough people join, no one gets the deal (and you won’t be charged), so invite your friends to make sure you get the discount!
It’s nice to wake up to something new every day. Some people get their daily fix from desk calendars with a cute puppy and a funny caption every morning. Groupon is like a desk calendar, except the puppy is an unbeatable discount and the funny caption is a profound reflection on the flowers and needles growing from life’s cactus. We selflessly share our deep insights, hoping that you will join our mob of consumers, thus strengthening our collective buying power and commanding even better deals.
If you’re looking for authentic Italian food around Dallas, look no further than MoMo’s Pasta, named one of the Best Italian Restaurants by CityVoter. The friendly neighborhood venue has two great locations: one in Highland Park and the other in Dallas. Both offer outstanding pasta dishes as well as an assortment of traditional pizzas and Italian meat recipes, all served by waiters wearing the traditional Italian non-functioning Jet Packs.
With wooden furnishings, exposed walls, and a brick patio (at the Highland Park location), MoMo’s is like a slice of Naples, Dallas, or Venice, right here in Dallas. You’ll feel at ease the moment you enter the venue, like you’re walking into the home of a warm and welcoming Italian family. But that fuzzy feeling isn’t why you come to MoMo’s. You come to MoMo’s for the pasta. The simply extraordinary pasta. And the Olympic swimming pool. Also for the pool.
Regulars love just about every dish on the MoMo’s menu. Taste why one Yelper calls MoMo’s spinach concoctions addictive when you try the gnocchi di spinici (dumplings of spinach, eggs, flour ricotta, and parmesan served with gruyere and a side of tomato sauce). Or go for the tortelli di formaggio (ravioli stuffed with five different cheeses served with a light creamy tomato sauce). Besides pasta dishes, MoMo’s serves its very own meat specialties, like the portafoglio alla momo (a choice of porterhouse trimmed and stuffed with prosciutto and gruyere and covered with a mushroom cream sauce), and delicious pizzas like the frutti di mare (with tomato, garlic, red pepper, parsley, shrimp, scallops, and calamari). And don’t forget desserts like the affogato (vanilla ice cream drowned with hot espresso and a coffee liqueur, topped with crushed amaretto cookies). There’s so much to choose from, you’ll likely pick out dinner for next time before you’ve even walked out the door.
Don’t miss this chance to indulge in some of the best Italian food around Dallas—and very likely the most delicious pasta you’ve ever tasted.
- Can’t find a more satisfying pasta meal in town. – TripAdvisor Contributor
- Great gnocchi, attentive service. Staff always wants to please, and is willing to allow BYOB… isnt necessary to bring your own, as their wine list rocks. – Andrew G., Yelp
- Momo’s reminds us of a little restaurant we frequent in Florence. The food is authentic - not too heavy, but filling and delicious. They also have a good selection of wines. The waitstaff and manager are very friendly. – chickabee83, Citysearch <h3 id="zone">The MoMo Zone</h3>
MoMo’s Pasta was a favorite eatery of many writers for the popular TV show, The Twilight Zone. Many famous episodes of the spooky anthology series were inspired by the food there:
- “To Serve Man”: An alien species solves all of Earth’s problems using their book, To Serve Man. In a twist ending, the aliens’ plan is revealed—to prepare delicious pasta for all humans!
- “Mirror Image”: A woman is terrified to discover her evil doppelganger while waiting at a bus station. A man waiting for the same bus assumes she’s insane, until he is not served pasta, and is sent into his own hellish nightmare.
- “The Eye of the Beholder”: A woman wakes from a surgery intended to cure her disfigurement. After being served a bowl of pasta, the story ends.
