Dinner at Mamou

Monday, June 16, 2008

I've been hearing from my friend Kath that Mamou's steaks are great!

To be perfectly honest - I'm not keen on eating at any Serendra restaurant - because the ones my Panget and I have tried - we were let down. There was only one prior to Mamou that we liked.

But we had to pick Serendra for last Saturday's dinner - as it was requested by one of my Panget's college buddies. And since Panget was a steak lover - Mamou it was!

I liked the fact that the restaurant is following a first and second seating policy. It makes reservations easier and is a little more 'civilized'. This so reminds me of the Alaskan cruise I took years ago! Thanks Annie for the great service!!

Anyhoo - I got the Beer Battered Fish and Chips while my Panget opted for the Twin Steak!

Beer Battered Fish and Chips

The Fish and Chips were just alright - I was expecting something more, a better kick or more pieces! But it was really done in a very simple manner. But what was nice about this dish is that they serve it with 2 sauces - one was the tartar sauce and the other was the malt vinegar sauce. At first it may seem odd that there was a vinegar sauce, I mean I've actually never seen a Fish and Chips dish served with any other sauce except for the usual tartar sauce, so this was definitely different. When I dipped it and tasted it - my gosh, I was amazed! The flavor was all over! It tasted great! Which was really unexpected. I liked the vinegar more than the tartar sauce! It was more yummy! But I think one needs to get used to the vinegar taste. Hehehe..

Twin Steak
(I'm not sure on the name, but I heard it was called that)

My Panget on the other hand loved loved loved the steak! I noticed that he was eating quite slower than the rest of us, when I asked him this (after dinner) - he told me that he was savoring every bite! He was making it a point to eat very slowly so could enjoy each bite more! There was one complaint though - it was very oily and the plate wasn't tilted as it was supposed to be. But he was very satisfied with the steak, I mean very satisfied. He's a steak guy and for him to praise Mamou's steak - well that only means one thing, it was really good! He also loved the sidings of Corn and Mashed Potatoes - I loved them too!

A closer look.. yummy right??

If you're looking for a great steak place - go to Mamou! It's the best my Panget has tried so far! I believe him - and look at the images we took - it looks soooo good!

  5. fish and chips is traditionally served with malt vinegar and salt. back then, whole atlantic cod fillets were coated in either a beer or yeast batter and fried to seal in the moisture/steam the fish. the coating was originally meant to be peeled off but it tasted good, hence....

    i suppose that fish used in mamou's creamy dory.

    what a measly serving of chips
