Mama Wong's Kitchen - Come to Mama
Mama Wong's is a place I've walked past many times as I negotiate the junction to head towards the MCG. Who is Mama Wong? Finally I took the plunge and rolled up for lunch. I was surprised at the extensive menu with a huge variety of Asian meals.
Mama Wong's also delivers on instant Asian meals in the bain marie. As once again I was in a hurry at lunch, I ordered the Satay chicken with a fried dim sim as extra.
Mama Wong's Satay chicken was serviceable but the sauce wasn't the creamy satay I prefer. Nonetheless the rice was excellent with good amount of ingredients and suitably dry (how I like it). This was a large portion and satisfied for lunch.
Condiments are available for self serve at a table next to the counter.
I looked for Mama Wong in the kitchen but it was a bloke (my sense of humour).
I intend to return to try the honey chicken, lemon chicken and some of the Indonesian options like Nasi Goreng and the Mee Goreng.
The tasty food and quick service make this a winner in this part of the city.
