There is this one day every year, when we express our truck loads of love for our dear fathers. While some call it Father’s Day, Mamagoto like to promote it as the ‘Papagoto Day’. The day when fathers steal the limelight from the mothers. This year too, on June 21st, while half of India’s population (some universal territories too), woke up to the practice of #YogaDay, me and my family were more focused on dining in for some Asian flavours by the afternoon.

Right from the bar munchies, starters to the wholesome main course and to-die-for desserts; everything was out of its world and stood apart from the lot. Take a look at how I added on to my gluttony (without guilt) last Sunday, as I treated my father and family to some Asian flavours.   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. Kalapalette’s Recommendation : Passion Fruit & Orange Cooler, Street Style Spicy Dumplings (we ordered Chicken), Honey Chicken with Bell …

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!
