Have you had any good home cooking lately?
Are you in the East Village of NYC?
Do you like food?
If you answered “yes” to a couple of these questions, then take your butt down to Mama’s Food Shop on East 3rd Street and Avenue B in New York City’s East Village. I’ve found Mama’s to be a great place to get my fix of macaroni and cheese – which from a quality standpoint – can be a difficult thing to find.
The evening’s meal consisted of the “dinner” which meant 1 main course and two sides. My sides were mac & cheese and delicious, honeyed yams.
The main course featured the always reliable meatloaf. I was stuffed in the end in spite of the fact that I got it all as ‘takeout’. When I’ve eaten at Mama’s… it always seems like there’s even more food on the plate. Either way, prepare for a mountain of food.
Mama’s has dining areas as well as a handy bar room where you can imbibe (or quaff) your favorite beverage – which is usually a Sierra Nevada for me. And, don’t forget to ‘bus’ your plates. This is Mama’s after all, and you don’t want to let her down.
Mama’s receives 4 out of 5 tulips in honor of spring from this East Village blog.
