Living up to its nomenclature, Mamagoto is encouraging lunchtime diners to experiment with their tastebuds and create their unique flavours.
Their mid-day ‘anti-buffet’ does away with pre-made dishes. So what you get instead is customised dishes where their chefs are at hand to whip up a mean khowsuey, stir fries in sauces of your choice, teppenyakis and more.
Quite a refreshing concept from the usual buffets with so much food, yet such few palate pleasers, not to mention the huge wastage involved.
The entire concept with their live food counters is reminiscent of typical Asian hawker markets where one gets to choose and see exactly what goes into your meal.
There’s no dearth of variety in the starters with satays, dumplings, Thai crispy fried vegetables, stuffed grilled mushrooms and more. Starters are served at the table, and then you head to the live counter to choose your main course.
My favourites were the Thai Green Curry Vegetables and Chicken in Schezwan sauce with Ginger and Assorted Pepper Fried Rice.
Desserts were a bit of a disappointment. There was nothing remotely Asian about the cupcakes and pastries the day I was invited to a bloggers table. Even the chocolate spring rolls were stuffed with coconut instead of chocolate. They tasted good no doubt, but when you’d expecting chocolate, coconut isn’t good enough a substitute.
Anyway, with their extensive menu and amazing pricing of Rs 660 all inclusive, this is one yummyinmytummy deal. Available only on weekday for lunch between 12:30 – 3:30pm.
