If you are craving for some authentic East Asian cuisines, then say out loud ‘Mamagoto’. While Delhi streets are crowded with vendors selling ‘chowmein’ and ‘momos’, the true taste of China/Japan/Korea cannot be achieved if not for the right wok and ingredients.
Taking the food seriously and impregnating it with some contemporary quirkiness, Mamagoto is one dine-in restaurant that is much more than just the authentic cuisines. Called the ‘Fun Asian Eating Restaurant’, from the decor to the palette they serve, everything is worth experiencing!
Kalapalette’s team tried out a portion of their extravagant menu at their Promenade, Vasant Kunj (Delhi) outlet a few days back. With the confused Delhi weather still keeping the temperatures low, this was the best time to treat ourselves to some hot soup bowls and steamed delicacies that are signature of Mamagoto!
About Mamagoto
Literally translated, it means ‘to play with food’. A Japanese social experiment of sorts, involving infants to use their senses to understand the textures and shape of food. Born out of this idea came our concept – to make Asian eating fun.
To make it experiential and social, to create a relaxed casual atmosphere where affordable and authentic food plus drinks combine with quirky décor.
The Drinks

Having the same drink for long can be boring. How about tasting different cocktails flavours with your friends?
Mamagoto’s offer : Choose any 4 shakers for Rs. 799/-
