Visiting Mama Lou’s Italian Kitchen

MLIK1At first glance, this place may seem like any ordinary house along that street. Well, it is a house converted to a restaurant so one could look past it, never knowing the delicious dishes that they offer. But ever since its launch, it has gained a following with people from far away dropping by this place to relish their foods. Let’s now visit this kitchen shall we?

This had the right level of creaminess which is good to start of one’s Italian dish journey.

As I searched the dish for the jalapeño pieces, I popped one in my mouth along with some pasta and tuyo. And the flavor was astoundingly good! Spicy and salty at the same time. Same as with the other pasta dish, the pasta in this one was al dente too and quite flavorful.

We were torn as to what pizza to choose. Good thing that the server told us that we can have two flavors in one. Talk about having best of both worlds! Their Pizza Salsiccia was good with the garlic sausage not overpowering each slice. The amount was just right to highlight the other ingredients in. Flavor was quite rich. The other pizza, Mama Lou’s Special, was the one that I liked best. It tasted fresh which was probably due to the mango and arugula toppings. The saltiness of the prosciutto slice paired well with the sweetness of the mango. With drizzled balsamic cream, this was one pizza that I could see ordering for myself again.

A good way to refresh oneself with all the Italian dishes is their iced tea. It wasn’t that sweet with slight hints of mint.

Not sure what happened to the signage there.
