Since being able to eat again, you may have noticed I am taking advantage of it all. Well, in my last review I mentioned I want to try new places to eat. So my friend who is also a foodie introduced me to a restaurant called La Mamas.
We booked a table and even though it is a small place- it gets busy on a Saturday evening. We were given our menus and as I am usually used to the same places, I struggled with the menu. Yes I can read, it’s just there was so much on there I asked my friend for recommendations. Three dishes are ideal each, they only cost between £3-£4 each, so I would describe them as combined starters.
The menu is divided between hot, cold and salads, we ordered the following:
- Empanadas de Queso £5.25
A Chilean cheese pastry parcel lightly fried
- Patatas al Ali-Oli £3.20
New potatoes mixed in freshly made salsa Ali-Oli
- Patatas Bravas £3.20
Fried potatoes served in a traditional spicy
- Tortilla Española £3.25
Everyone’s favourite! A Spanish potato and onion
- Sopaipillas al Pebre £3.25
A delightful Chilean tradition – lightly fried
pumpkin bread served with salsa pebre
My favourite was the Chilean rice and the Paras Bravas, the omelette was not for me.
To top of the night, we had chocolate chilli cake with ice-cream. I have to say I really enjoyed it. It’s not always on the menu, we had to ask for it a few days before (she knows people like that).
