Mamasita perpetually has a long line waiting to get in night after night.
I have to be honest, I’m not the biggest fan of Mamasita. The dishes I had were good but not great.
Elotes Callejeroes - “Street Style” Chargrilled Corn with Queso, Chipotle Mayonnaise & Lime ($4.4)
My favourite dish, corn on the cob coated with the most delicious mayo with queso shavings and tangy lime. I wish the corn was crunchier.
Tacos de Camarones - Marinated prawns with Habanero Chillies & Chipotle Almond Salsa ($7 each or $18 for 3)
These delicious prawns were beautifully crunchy but there was far too much of the soft taco wrap.
Tostaditas de Carnitas - Slow Braised Pork Shoulder with Encurtidos & Jalapenos ($14)
The pulled pork was quite dry.
Bunuelos de Garbanzos - Chick Pea Fritters, Field Mushrooms, Sweet Potato & Jalapeno Herb Sauce ($18)
This was surprisingly quite delicious. I loved the juicy mushrooms and the spicy sauce.
Quesadillas de Queso - 2 Cheeses & Jalapeno Salsa ($10)
Good Mexican Tapas at reasonable prices but I still walked away feeling dissatisfied. I don’t know if it’s worth queueing up for each and every time.
