The word 'Mamgoto' literally translates to 'to play with food' and be sure of this fact that their kitchen does the same thing. The Mama folks quite frankly stay away from the word authentic, simply because it's too serious but that does not mean their flavours deter any far from the origin of the food served here.

Mamagoto sources the finest of ingredients, flavours and cuisines from all across the continent and what you get on your plate is the fusion funk of street-style food, urban culinary expertise, all wrapped in a traditional kick!
