Mamasita (CBD)

Mamasita emerged well before the Mexican-wave that washed over the Melbourne dining scene in 2011. The narrow stairway clutters with hopeful, hungry-eyed patrons every evening, however, lunchtime it is far easier to secure a spot.

Mamasita offers an array of impressive lunch specials.Upon my last visit, I opted for their “Today’s Protein” . On that particular day the protein plate arrived in the form of delicious pork meatballs served with beans, greened rice & tortillas. The balls were soft, juicy orbs of flavour and when latched onto between the soft tortillas with a cheeky splash of hot sauce, my mouth entered flavour-town.

The delicious medley of homely bonafide Mexican for a meagre $15 went down a treat. And of course, paired with Mamasita’s sublime sangria, one cannot go wrong.

Upon my return to Mamasita for lunch, my dining partner opted for the protein of the day plate – this time a white chorizo. What is a white chorizo, you may ask? Is it chicken? Is it pork? Our collective minds actually couldn’t figure it out but it was reportedly delightful.Jpeg
This time round, I opted for the Ahogada con pollo. A scrumptious jumble of barbecued chicken & blackbean sandwiched between a soft long roll. The sandwich rests in arbol tomato salsa, with dashed of pickled onions and coriander atop for a potent kick. The gooeyness of the bread drowned in the arbol salsa balanced with the faintly charred chicken perfectly. A very, very decent lunchtime meal for only $12.

Mamasita goes from strength to strength and their level of service is another of the restaurants strengths. Despite being brimming with lunch-goers, the meals came out in a timely manner and it was never difficult to get the attention of a friendly waiter.Mamasita has outlasted Melbourne’s Mexican wave and for good reason; it is genuinely the best Mexican you can gnaw on in Melbourne’s CBD.
