The Mamasita’n dream!

1/11 Collins St  Melbourne VIC 3001

Nestled in the upstairs of a pretty dingy building in the city, is the epically amazing ‘not so secret’ that is Mamasita. As far as upmarket new age Mexican, they have nailed it. Then there is there service…. It couldn’t be better if you tried. These guys seem to be rocking the ‘knowledgeable, happy-to-be-at-work, I’m-awesome-at-my-job’ combination that makes the Mamasita experience what it is.

We headed in for a surprise Bday… now there are a few things you need to know… (you cant book unless its a table of 8-10, and you have to do set menu, otherwise you can do the walk in option, and most nights of the week at most times your looking at about an hour wait on the stairs smelling the gloriousness that is Mamasita before being seated- so worth either option)… Set menu for us, and what a menu it is!

Upon arrival you are asked if there are any food intolerances amongst the group – 1x vege, 1x fructard…. didn’t phase them. A couple of questions later and the Man-waiter-extraodinaire was totally under control (questions being my preferences, not what is fructose!?). He apologised for the fact that I would not be eating the same meal as the others….. hindsight says he should have apologised to the others as, as far as I’m concerned mine was better…..

Did I mention that when your dining as a walk in, they have an allergy menu. Basically let you know the items on the menu that they can’t remove the following from; dairy/egg/onion/garlic/chilli…. Oh and the whole menu is gluten free already!

Here’s how I went…

Entrée, exquisite~! no other words for it. I was served up avocado salsa with corn chips… I didn’t know you could make it taste that good. The avocado was even served in its own skin… sorry it looked so good it got eaten before I took piccys.

Tostaditas
2.5 inch fried tortilla with toppings –words cannot convey the flavour explosion…

And then to top it off mamasita rocked my world with their amazing choccolatey goodness

Thank you Mamasita for reinventing my belief in fructose free flavour! I couldn’t recommend this place more highly! We loved coming, and we WILL be back…..

I have been here for another set menu experience before, 5 out of the 10 were food-retarded… 1x vege, 1x dairy/soy/gf, 1x gf, 1xonion free and me….. same experience… no worries…
