Slurp! Slurp…

Okay, writing food reviews is not my bowl of soup and I am not offered any ‘free meals’ that excite me to do it either. Yet, I liked this not so new and not very old place in Delhi which deserves a thumbs-up!

Mamagoto (

Locations of the two outlets are perfect (Khan Market & Select City Walk). Menu has a lot of variety to offer, it’s not crazily expensive, is colorful and the restaurateurs define it as a ‘fun Asian dining’. Will I go back? Of course, infact a plan is in place already… 🙂

Finally, last Sunday even though my watch said its 5 pm and past lunch time still I convinced my cousin for an early ‘drunch’ (in between lunch and dinner). We went to Mamagoto, it’s been on my list of ‘must eat at’ places for sometime now.  Much to my delight the place was near empty and I could enjoy my meal in peace and no hurry.

Mamagoto, in Japanese means ‘to play with food’. Though they don’t have much of Jap cuisine, except for tempuras, a Wasabi mocktail and an odd Gomai salad; there is plenty of Japanese art & graphics on the walls.

Skipped the cocktail and mocktail and small bites section and went straight for the salads and main course. Our picks-

(Cold salad)- Snow pea and green beans salad with a dressing of Thai coconut milk reduction, burnt garlic, onions and peanuts. It was crunchy, fresh, tasted delicious.

Beijing Seafood soup with fish and prawns– A meal in itself, it is wholesome, healthy and appetizing! And if like my sister you like it spicy they can do that too without killing the original flavors.

And I opted for, Mamagoto chicken broth for a hungry soul– A signature dish with a name which reflected the state of my starving for food tummy :). The aroma was good enough for me to ask my sis, ‘do I have to share this with you’? Huge dish of soup with lots of chicken, veggies, vermicelli noodles and three chicken wantons served with a tantalizing oriental sauce.

The portions  are good for two and the bill came for little less than 800 bucks inclusive of taxes.

It definitely deserves a visit and if you like it enough then a second one too….

PS: Apols for a post meant for ‘Delhizens only’!

        Yes, just a bit under the weather and have my appetite messed up.
        Haha sea is right. It’s like that here too, some streets more than others. I sometimes feel there isn’t a more lucrative business. You can always eat the food if no customers arrive.
