Mamagoto, the much loved Pan Asian restaurant chain by Kabir Suri and Rahul Khanna of Azure Hospitality that started its first outlet at New Delhi in 2009, celebrated its five year milestone with the addition of the quintessential Asian staple The Dumpling & Chinese Bread, albeit with a “Mamagoto Special” twist.

Mamagoto, made eating Pan Asian cuisine a fun and memorable culinary experience, has always been at the helm of innovations that do not compromise on freshness or wholesomeness of each dish. Eating at Mamagoto always leaves one with a sense of satisfaction and adventure that keeps one coming back for more.

The New Dumplings and Mantau (Chinese Bread) menu follows in the same thread: hearty comfort food that surprises you pleasantly with its experimental pairing of ingredients, textures and tastes.

The Dumpling Menu is pure fun with great taste, allowing you to enjoy a mini meal of Dim sums: Street Style Spicy Dumpling (minced vegetable/chicken or shrimp), Traditional Peking Dumpling, Jungle Dumpling (chive infused vegetable or minced shrimp dumpling, topped with ginger, mint and soy sauce), Old School Gyoza(Lightly pan fried vegetable or chicken dumplings with a spicy “momo” sauce).

Though I loved the dumplings thoroughly there is one thing that remains the center of my concern and that is, the sauce makes the steamed dumplings soggy and the pan fried ones had a little layer of oil which was mixed with these dumplings and again made them too soggy.

The light, almost cloud like “Mantaus” come with stuffing’s such as Porky Apple Mantau Makeover (shredded pork belly, caramelised apple infused with red chilli, served in a mantau), Tokyo Metro Mantau (Crumb crusted slivers of aubergine or chicken with wasabi mayo and Japanese BBQ sauce served in a mantau), Cheesy Veggie Bun(stir fried pad choi, pine nuts ,spices and fresh cheese, served in a closed bao).

The mantau’s were perfectly stuffed and the filling was an absolute stunner but the bread was way too fermented which gave me a taste of south Indian rice dumpling (Idli) and the bread was almost over powering the filling inside.

Chinese Chicken Puff (minced chicken wok tossed in a 5 spice aroma and baked into a puff) and Char Siu Puff (The classic sweet “Char Siu” style vegetable or pork stuffed puff).

These puff’s can be mistaken for the french pastry but no it’s not that. These are traditional sweet char sui puff which is either filled with minced chicken or veggies. At first I was confused about the sweetness but when I asked about it then I was told that that is how they are made, a little sweeter. If you don’t like the sweetness in your food then you can probably avoid this.

To give that perfect satisfying end to the meal Mamagoto has introduced the seasonal Mango Coconut Sago Pudding.
