Happy Birthday to Us!

8 years of Mora

Mora officially opened its doors on 22nd March 2016, so we are turning 8 on Friday!

Can you believe that? Time has gone really fast…

We’re so proud and honoured of still being able to bring a Sardinian sensation to this corner of East London. We can’t believe how much has happened during these years and how many wonderful people we have met!

You know how life in London is transitional for many, so obviously a number of our customers (and team members) changed over the years because people moved away. Many of you, though, have been with us since day 1, and are still our biggest fans. And even many who moved away still come and visit when they can, or keep in touch. We can’t thank you enough for sticking with us all this time, you really have become friends and part of the family. We’ve actually had this conversion with quite a few of you recently, haven’t we?

We have seen couples getting engaged and married, then having babies. We have seen babies becoming toddlers, taking their first steps (and runs!) on our ramp by the bar counter. We have seen children growing into teenagers and young adults in the years. We are chuffed to have been able to be part of this, thank you sharing your precious moments with us!

To celebrate our birthday, we’ll be opening a very special bottle: the magnum bottle of Keramos Cannonau DOC Riserva, Tenute Soletta 2010. That’s a very special wine indeed, a beautifully elegant expression of Cannonau made with slightly late harvest grapes that see a sophisticated winemaking and oak aging process. This rich and full-bodied red opens with aromas of ripe plum, vanilla and a hint of charred topsoil. The warm, chewy palate has flavours of ripe black cherry, liquorice, baking spice and coffee bean while a note of bitter almond signals the finish.

As you may have heard, Cannonau di Sardegna wines have attracted considerable attention in the last few years for their association with longevity, as in Sardinia there are so many centenaries. So is there a better wine to cheer with on our 8th birthday?

We’ll be pouring this “long life elixir” from Friday, glasses will be available at a steal price of £5. That’s a treat not to miss!

Come and have a toast with us this Friday! A Kent’annos!

Book you table now!

Mora Deli Shop

So what’s cooking at Mora?

We have some exciting news to share with you!

You may have already noticed that we keep improving and expanding our deli shop, but the first important change is that from Monday 8th February we will be open from 11 am to 9pm, so you will be able to pop-in for your daily grocery shopping instead of waiting for the evening time or Saturday.

You will see Mora looking a lot more like a shop, with wines, beers and liqueurs at retail price, our amazing selection of artisan cheeses and cured meats, and all the general grocery essentials, biscuits, sauces, treats and preserves.. and take-away coffees. But there is more!

We will be selling our fresh homemade pastas and sauces as we have been doing since the first lockdown, but you will also be able to pre-order special ravioli and ready meals to cook at home.

Have a look at the Cook at Home section of our website to see all the available products, and make sure to check the notice required for pre-orders. There are so many ideas spinning in our heads, you’ll see that soon.

This will be a trial for a few weeks, while we wait and hope to see a bright light at the end of this long tunnel. So order online or come and browse the shop, and show us your love!

But fear not, this won’t mean we will stop our regular restaurant take-away service, on the contrary, our food will be available for collection from 12pm Monday to Saturday now!

Excited? We hope so, we are super thrilled!

New Year’s Eve Menu

To cheer you up on New Year’s Eve we have designed another menu to cook at home like we did at Christmas, with plenty of lentils to wish you good luck for the New Year!

Did you know that in the Italian tradition, lentils, with their coinlike shape, represent luck and prosperity? This is why they can’t miss on a proper New Year’s Eve feast.

This 4 course menu will be available on pre-order for the 31st Dec only (collection from 12pm to 5pm)

Deadline for pre-order is the 30th Dec at 6pm.

Take-Away and Deli Shop

There’s a new exciting update from Mora!

In order to keep serving you, our fantastic community who has been supporting us in the years, and showed us such a warmth and affection during these difficult times, we have decided to try and adapt to a new identity: we will be providing a take-away service and deli shop (for collection only for now), starting from Tuesday 5th May

We will be offering our full restaurant’s menu, with our wines and drinks available at take-away prices, and selling a variety of general provisions and grocery essentials such as flour, oil, pasta, biscuits, cured meats and more, as well as our fresh homemade pasta and sauces to cook at home.

Our Deli shop will be open Tuesday to Friday from 4 to 9pm (with take-away collections starting from 5pm), on Saturdays from 12 to 9pm and on Sundays from 12 to 6pm.

Pop in and say hello if you have a chance, our shelves and tables are now stocked up and ready for you to browse through a fine selection of Italian goodies. Or explore our range of good food and drinks and place an order for collection through our online shop.

We really hope this will give you the chance to enjoy a little taste of Mora from home until we are able to welcome you all back in!
