Mamagoto is our favorite joint for Asian food. When it opened in DLF Mall of India, NOIDA we were elated, since the travel distance reduced. Recently Mamagoto has launched the Unwrapped Bento Box, a twist to the traditional way of serving lunch in bento boxes.
Bento Boxes have been used in Japan for almost a thousand years now, although the origin is controversial. Derived from a word meaning convenience, bento boxes were created to cater to people carrying lunch to work or school. A typical bento box would contain sections to have rice, seafood, pickled vegetables and other eatables. A twist to the bento box is introduced in the form of Unwrapped Bento Box at Mamagoto – which keeps the choice of items the same, just the format of serving changes.
The Unwrapped Bento Box offers a set menu (veg. & non-veg.) for each day of the week. It turns out to be an easy choice for groups, if you are looking for a quick meal, are economical on the pocket too. The quantity is more than enough for a person with good appetite.
Our order of a Veg. Unwrapped Bento Box brought us a plate of steamed rice, banana chips, southeast Asian sauce and a 4 bowl tray with salad(Slim Sumo Salad), stir fry (veggies with Thai Herbs), small plate (Tofu in Black Pepper Sauce) and curry (Veg. Penang Curry). We loved the quinoa-cherry tomato-pineapple Slim Sumo Salad; slightly sweet on taste, this is not your regular salad, but you will love it. We generally don’t like tofu dishes, but we loved it here – silky smooth tofu, batter crusted in a black pepper sauce. Veggies with Thai Herbs stands true to its name and the herbs impart a unique taste to the dish. Penang Curry is well made as well.

The Non-veg. Unwrapped Bento Box gave us Fish in Black Pepper Sauce & Chicken Penang Curry as the non-veg. alternatives, everything else being the same. Needless to say, we loved the dishes. The best part about food at Mamagoto is the authenticity; the occasional twists just make things better.
