Mr. Mamagoto; fresh new menu!

SHARE:

New menus can be a recycle of the old. Or they can bring a lot of freshness to a restaurant. Mamagoto has chosen the second path, with a placard dedicated to the new menu. And the new ones are pretty impressive and a few even take a few strides away from what was there before.







A lot has been written about it's decor and so, I'm getting straight to the point, here. Wasabi prawns with some crisp pita on the side. The pitas double up as cutlery to pick up the prawns and they are sharp enough to poke into, but once inside, they play the third role; to douse a little bit of the wasabi pungent-ness that can otherwise clear your sinuses and your brains! Left to me, I would have gone slightly easy on the mayo, but maybe the chef decided to leave it to prevent a bigger wasabi hit. All said and done, lovely dish.

And then came along two grilled chicken dishes, but both, poles apart in flavour. While quite different in flavour, both were excellent dishes to taste. The herbed grilled chicken was the table's favourite, with its deep flavour and a little crisp to add an unexpected texture, while the beetroot grilled chicken was my dish of the evening. Not quite as powerful as its friend, the contrast of flavour from the usual grilled chickens in town tilted my balance towards this. While we have loads of grilled chickens with varied herbs, to flavour it with beetroot, giving both the flavour and the colour was nice touch.

And then arrived my dish of the day, the poached prawns, on a base of a spicy-tangy chilly lemon jelly. The simplicity of the prawns with the slight complexity of the jelly created a beautiful tango for the tongue. Mr. Mamagoto might have tried and failed to create any new desserts to outwit their excellent line up of desserts, so you'll have to make do with the old menu for that. No complaints. With a Banofe pie like that and sticky toffee cake that can give stiff competition to stand alone dessert bars, our desserts were done.

Mamagoto's frequent menu changes and add ons keep them relevant, during the time when fun asian dining has taken Chennai by storm and new outlets are popping up every few weeks!

I was at the KNK outlet and I believe they have one in Phoenix mall as well.
