Upon being seated a basket of warm dinner rolls and butter was served.

Wine prices are kind of steep, we settled for a bottle of French wine from the Haute Medoc region, a 2008 bottle of Viviers de Carrone.

To start we had the Tofu and Smoked Fish Spring Rolls. The crispy fried spring rolls was filled with tofu, ubod or heart of palm and tinapa or smoked fish, served with sweet chili sauce and vinegar. The simple and ingenious creation was delicious, the combination of the flavors and textures complimented each other so well.

Mamou serves a couple of pasta dishes, we had the Mamou's Linguine Vongole. Written below the menu on each pasta dish was the phrase 'served al dente'. I didn't have any expectations whatsoever on the pasta until I took a forkful and tasted it, I was blown away on how good it was. The linguine pasta couldn't be any better, it was perfectly al dente. The clams were plump and fresh and the flavors of the simple garlic and oil sauce was spot on. After eating the Vongole, it made me want to try out their other pasta offerings. It's definitely one the best cooked pasta dishes I've tasted in the metro.

The Beer Battered Fish with Malt Vinegar was cooked really well. I enjoyed how light and crispy it is, it just had the right amount breading plus the fish inside was moist and flaky. One has a choice between potato wedges, rice or mashed potato to go with the fish. The dish was also served with two dips, the malt vinegar and tartar sauce. I know that you have to dip the fried fish in the dip or squeezed the lemon wedge to bring out its flavors. But I would have wanted more flavors directly from the fish instead. Nonetheless, Mamou's version of the fish and chips is pretty good.

The key to a great tasting key lime pie is the balance between the sweetness and the tangy sourness. I've tried a couple of key lime pies before and Mamou's version ranks high among the best. It just had the right amount of sweetness and tangy sourness, crust is thick yet it crumbles and I like how they serve the schlagsahne or whipped cream was served of the side.
