Excerpt from “Mamou’s Kitchen” by Ces Rodriguez for InFlight October-November 2010
“Warm colors dominate, with wooden floorboards, wooden chairs in red leatherette, ever-so-slightly scratched tabletops, backlit smoked glass cupboards behind the serving counter, and butler pendant lights create a laidback vibe.”
“The piece de resistance: an 800g dry aged USDA prime grade porterhouse steak (P3,500 for the twin size, P2,800 for the 600g). It came darkened by the grill, pre-sliced into strips. We tried all four side dishes that came with it: baked mashed potatoes, creamed spinach, corn pudding and white rice sautéed in steak fat.”
“It can get noisy at times at Mamou, but the food is good and the setting, nicely casual, says Ces Rodriguez”
