Mamma Flo’s Caribbean restaurant; review
If I had to sum up the atmosphere in one word it would have to be; inviting. The atmosphere was so warm and relaxing that you felt like you were at home with your grandma. Everyone seemed to have a fabulous time and did some great socializing. I didn’t want to leave by the end of my meal because you want to savour the atmosphere more than the great taste of food.
I’m really impressed; from the outside it looks like the food could be really horrible but once you step through the front door you can tell the saying “all that glitters isn’t gold” is absolutely true to its every word. It’s totally inspiring to know that the sixty year old, Mamma Flo, runs the kitchen solely on her own without help from another cook.
Wow! Where do I start? The food is to die for and it’s all freshly made whilst you wait. I have never been so pleased to have something as simple as gravy but this gravy was different; it was more like tomato than meat and it was really sweet. The dumplings are the best I’ve ever had; really chewy but yet the consistency was absolutely mouth wateringly gorgeous. Her food could go very far but I’m sort of glad it didn’t otherwise the experience wouldn’t have hit you like it does as soon as you slip that sweet dumpling in your mouth after dipping it in the sweet gravy; the combination just clicks together.
From what I could tell: the chef was clean and the kitchen area was as germ free as possible. Every table was set up neatly with colourful tissue paper in the cups and cutlery wrapped smoothly in napkins.
I would recommend Mamma Flo’s to anybody who loves to feel at home whilst eating the foods of the dreamy Caribbean. Mamma flo is a great cook and I am positive she would never fail to impress your taste buds.
