If we want to have an authentic Italian food fix, we go to Mama Lou’s BF Homes. We have also dined in their Solenad and Evia branches but what sets the BF Homes branch stand out among the other branches?
First, it is closer to our residence at around 2-3 kilometers, just a 15 minute drive.
Second, it has the homey ambiance from the alfresco dining area up to their second floor. I frequently see a lot of customers in their senior years which attests that the place matches with their prime taste – quiet, cozy and vintage. I am just in my early 30’s but I think I am getting old haha. I usually want to be in a relax and quiet place when dining. I am done with partying, I guess. 😀 The alfresco area is something that I want to have in my dream house. The fairy lights hung on the ceiling and the dainty plants around the garden are so relaxing and refreshing.
Third, their foods are all delicious. One thing that makes me full even before our orders arrive is their hot herb bread they serve with olive oil and vinaigrette dip (i suppose). The bread is so soft and the vinaigrette complements the taste. It was already filling but of course, we still have the belly capacity for the main event. Haha
My 4 year old picky-eater son’s favorite is the Truffle Mac & Cheese. I can still remember the first time I tasted it, explosion of flavors in my mouth that sent me to heavens (I’m a sucker for cheese) 😀 That explains why my son liked it so much.
You can order their pizza with 2 flavors in one (half on half) that I super liked, able to enjoy 2 different flavors for the price of one (whichever has the higher price). Our favorite flavors are Mama Lou’s Special and their All Meat pizzas. I have tried the other flavors and everything tastes great. Plus the Alfalfa sprouts and my favorite Arugula that goes well with the pizzas.
Their Beef Salpicao is also our favorite, the soft and tender beef trimmings in the garlicky soy sauce. Oh so yummy!
My sons would always try something sweet whenever we eat and Mama Lou’s does not disappoint. They have their selection of cake slices and desserts that any sweet tooth would love.
Mama Lou’s is a place where you can bring your whole family because you are sure that everyone’s taste can be catered. My parents would usually criticize the food afterwards but not in Mama Lou’s. They only have good words and adoration for this resto which gives them good memories and dining experience in return.
The staff, I must say are friendlier in BF branch. I don’t have not so good comments with Solenad and Evia but I just felt more at home with the original.
The rest of the recent photos I took were posted below while the first few visits were posted on my Instagram.
Nothing compares to the warmth of a house turned into a restaurant. Just like the warmth of a Mother to her family. ❤
