Mamagoto Seasonal Menu-A Must Try

Mamagoto - the much loved Pan Asian restaurant chain known for its quirky Asian cuisine brings for its loyalists a new “Seasonal Menu” taking forward their philosophy of Food, Fun, Taste and Innovation. Mamagoto heralds a new interpretation of Asian Cuisine, when literally translated means; “To Play with Food”. It has been inspired by a Japanese experiment of sorts, with the same name, involving infants to use their senses to understand the shapes and textures of food. Mamagoto brings affordable Pan Asian food while retaining a global flavor and cosmopolitan appeal. 


Last weekend I decided to be a good Mama and have a nice, warm fun meal with my baby. Mamagoto seemed a great choice. This special menu has been specially curated for the winter season. I had heard great things about Mama’s BIG BOWLS incorporating the classic ‘meal in a bowl’ concept. Mamagoto offered Mama Katsu-DON, a working man’s (or woman's) classic meal in a bowl with Mirin, Sake, Kikkoman Soya, smoky onion sauce poured over sticky rice and served with a topping of either Panko crusted fried Chicken or Aubergine. 

The Mama Bar also offers this season 3 new exotic concoctions namely – Basil Salted Mary cocktail, which is a home made basil infused salt, with vodka, tomato juice, Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce served with flash grilled herbed tomato wheels. Rum Diaries is a combination of white and dark rum shaken with grilled pineapple and orange juice, lime and pomegranate essence, served alongside grilled orange. Lastly, the Frozen Sangria is a classic red wine sangria imbued with a citrus flavoured pop rock. The ‘Seasonal Menu’ takes its patrons on a culinary adventure encapsulating the flavours of Pan Asian cuisine with perfectly paired cocktails. I simply loved this one.


The cocktails went well with all-time favourite ‘Mama’s Dumplings’, the menu offers 3 varieties from Mixed mushroom spiked with sesame oil, served with a fresh chilli and vinegar dressing, to Minced chicken and preserved beancurd stuffed dumplings, with a home made chilli oil sauce on top and lastly, Nori (seaweed) and shrimp filled dumplings with chilli and soya dressing is of course our favourite. 

The Osaka Tube station Bowl is a traditional ramen noodles bowl found in the tube stations across Tokyo and Osaka. It has a subtle broth with flavours of mushroom, Miso and Shio Tare (a mixed soya sauce) and marinated boiled egg – served with chicken/salmon or tofu. The Mama’s Spicy Ramen Bowl comprises of minced chicken or vegetables combined with a spicy broth, with buttered corn kernels and blanched spinach. The Indo Coco Rice is an exciting innovation wherein rolls made from sticky rice are infused with coconut milk, steamed and wrapped in a banana leaf. 

For dessert there was a sinful Banoffie Pie that we shared but I was in such good spirits that I forgot to click a picture of that!  

All in all a great evening with my l’il one, feeling all drenched in Mama and baby love.

  My 'Mamagoto' look for the day:

An oversized, pure wool, extra warm, multi-coloured Benetton Sweater with a Nordik look I bought years ago(ok almost 20 years ago. Fine sue me for that!). I still wear it once every year on the coldest day of the year. Heard of comfort clothing? Just like comfort food of Mamagoto! 

My dependable blue jeans and Bruno Manetti blue suede boots!
