Mamagoto, an eatery specialises in Pan Asian Cuisine. In Japanese, Mamagoto means playing with food as the Restaurant manager said. Thus they created their signature dishes.
Currently, Mamagoto has six outlets in Delhi NCR, and these are – Khan Market, Vasant Kunj, Saket, DLF Mall of Noida, Gurugram and Connaught Place to be open for public soon.
We visited the Saket outlet, and The exact location is the 2nd Floor of Select City walk near to Yum Yum Cha. The same floor also has an eatery by the name of Burma Burma serves authentic Pan Asian delicacies, but unfortunately, they only serve vegetarian dishes, and as a gastronomer, our priority always is to try out non-veg delicacy. Definitely, in our next visit to Select City Walk, we will try out Burma Burma.
We randomly walked-in to review Mamagoto without any prior reservations. As you reach the entrance, one will notice the customer relation executive standing outside with Menu cards lying on the podium with a register to keep a record who all are visiting the outlet. To excite consumers, the restaurant has framed award-winning certificates at the entry gate and wall above the podium.
As we entered the dining area, the restaurant manager and his team greeted us with a warm gesture. The interiors perfectly decorated in Asian Style with comfortable chairs and sofas. As the restaurant is spacious, they can accommodate up to 35-40 people.
The menu is extensive, but there is no specific dish mentioned from a particular Asian country; instead, it is a fusion of inspiration from Asian street hawkers, their extensive research & experiments on Pan Asian Cuisine.
We decided to settle with a menu that the servers and chef had decided would be the best for us to have a comprehensive and wholesome experience of what the restaurant has to offer, with a specific eye on Pan Asian cuisine.
The server was first served us a complimentary rice crackles basket along with two types dip – Jaggery and Chilli.
The Jaggery dip had a mild spicy flavour, and the Chilli dip was delicious.
Next; we were served the Dumpling Platter (Rs.829) along with four types of dip. The platter consisted of five different variants of dumpling-
Prawn enoki dumpling, prawn and celery dumpling, lamb roll with pak choi dumpling, chicken and pak choi dumpling, chicken street style spicy dumpling. Both the prawn dumpling was appetising, with a good quality of prawn. The minced lamb dumpling was half done, and hence it was tasteless.
Post this; the manager recommended us to taste Shrimp with Dry Red Chilli Rs.629) tossed with Chinese flavourings & burnt garlic served with chilli mayo dip. The shrimps were crispy from outside and juicy from inside and had a strong smoky flavour. This dish was delicious.
With this dish, they also served a mocktail –
Kiwi Mint Collins. This is a mixture of kiwi, mint leaves, lime sugar syrup and soda. A very sweet in taste could have better with less sugar syrup.
Then came the dazzling Mama’s Spicy Ramen Bowl (Rs.699) which had chunks of chicken, vegetables, corns, one boiled egg garnished with green chillies. This was mildly spicy, tasty and sufficient for one customer.
After this, all that remained was to conclude our meal with some excellent dessert. The sheer brilliance of the meal had built up a very high expectation for the dessert, and the Caramel Sponge Cake (along with toffee sauce and vanilla ice cream) that was whipped up for us fulfilled this to very satisfying effect. The cake was spongy, and along with toffee sauce, it tasted yummy.
Thus ended our fabulous meal. We recommend all foodies to visit Mamagoto when you are in Delhi.
