(SPOT.ph) Getting a table without reservations during at Mamou’s Serendra branch is not an easy feat. Devotees come here for the steaks and allow themselves decadent meals with Mamou’s weekend brunch fare. Loyal fans now have a second branch to hie off to when craving for Mamou’s brand of comfort food: the second branch at the Power Plant Mall has also added new dishes to its already-indulgent menu.
It’s easy to stuff yourself with deli meat from Mamou’s Charcuterie (P1,200)-a serving of pop-in-your-mouth cuts of Jamon serrano, pepper salami, chorizo Iberico and several cheeses: cheddar, cranberry stilton cheese, plus the creamy and soft Spanish cheese Arzua ulloa served with raspberry jam, vanilla chestnut, figs jam, green olives with baby gherkins, and sourdough bread, melba chips and sinful truffle honey on the side. Choose to try new dishes such as the Asian Duck with Chorizo Rice (P395) or go for old reliables like the Salmon Steak on Warm Couscous (P575), which you may now order with veggie-like rice instead of the couscous and their Angus Ribeye Prime Grade Steak, a tempting serving of tender and juicy meat, best eaten without the gravy it is served with, just because the salt and the pepper easily draws out the meat’s robust flavor. "Contrary to what people think, our steaks aren’t marinated," shares Mamou’s MM Vasquez.
Dessert isn’t just an after-thought at Mamou, either. Popular picks include the Key Lime Pie (P145), a refreshing yet creamy treat served with "schlagsahne" on the side, a lighter take on whipped cream. Mamou’s Crispy Milk (P275) will easily win milk-lovers with lightly-sweet melted custard enveloped in fried dough. Adventurous with your desserts? The Salted Egg Custard Buns (P115) are baked with salted egg yolks for a savory twist to the usual sweet confections.
The Mamou Power Plant branch also has a private dining area which can comfortably seat 14 people.
