Monday Eats: Mama G’s Kitchen

Monday Eats: Mama G’s Kitchen

I’ve been meaning to write a review of this little cafe down on Centre Road in Bentleigh for a while now, but it has changed it’s name from Paseo Del Prado to Mama G’s Kitchen.  The quality of the food though, is still just as good as when I first tried their wares about a year ago.

Mama G’s Kitchen

Centre Road has its lovely group of shops and cafes, which can either make it a mecca for us or something that can overwhelm us; especially when some of what’s on offer are either too “out there”, or too similar and are at ridiculous price points.  I mean, what is with Australia’s exorbitant breakfast prices at cafes?  I could get a decent sized and quality meal in America at a fraction of the price.  Which is why we have to be absolutely discerning when it comes to choosing a cafe to indulge in.  The things I normally look for are:

  • Hygiene
  • Quality of food and coffee
  • Service
  • Atmosphere

Notice how decor doesn’t even come into play?  Like I’ve mentioned in previous posts, while decor might be an important factor, to me, cleanliness still tops the list.  No point eating in a decked out place only to have to sit in the toilet all day after that right?

Anyway, I first went to Mama G’s Kitchen when it was still known as Paseo Del Prado, to have brunch.  I chose their Shakshika-Baked Eggs with Ricotta with a long macchiato.

The next time I went there was with Miss 13 to have their burger special.  The special came with a choice of sweet potato fries or shoestring fries.  You have a choice of six different patties to choose from, then the “flavour” you want to create the burger of your choice.  Like a personalised burger really and that’s only for $13.

I’ve been there a few times and the food has never ever disappointed me, neither has the service.  The serving staff is always so welcoming and friendly and the chef, who I believe is also the owner, remembers you!  It’s like eating at a lovely, family restaurant without the “fast food” element.

Here are some of the other dishes I’ve had there:

Soy Cappucino

Mama G’s Kitchen has a pretty impressive menu at decent price points.  The service is warm and inviting, if you can ignore the slightly more rustic decor.

  • […] Mama G’s Kitchen and Gramercy Bistro at the Cullen – Two other places that share the same spot.  Mama G’s Kitchen is a cafe that serves burgers and boy do they make a pretty mean burger.  Yes it can get a little messy but in this case, it was well worth the mess.  The wagyu burger at Gramercy was surprisingly good, considering it was a place that we happened upon because the ones we wanted to go to were fully booked.  But definitely well worth a visit even if it’s on the more expensive side of things.
