Kuku Mama has a 25% off total bill voucher from the Entertainment Book (EB) which brings us to our next little EB dinner adventure. So if you are the owner of an Entertainment Book, you must check this place out. The place serves amazing tapas food to share and even turns into a night club late night on Friday’s and Saturdays if you feel like a good feed before dancing the night away. Best of all, they have cheeseburger dumplings on the menu.
Cauliflower, curry mayo, sesame slaw, raisin jam tacos (v, gf) $6.00
Sweet potato, shitake, enoki dumplings (v) $6.00
The cheeseburger dumplings certainly did taste just like cheeseburgers, with pickles and sauce to boot. However, I will note that the beef balls were a little tough most likely due to the lean mince used. What I didn’t expect and was pleasantly surprised to find was a melted cheese centre in each of the dumplings.
Cheeseburger dumplings (beef, pickle, Bobby John sauce) $6.00
Crinkle cut chips, honey, soy, sesame, chilli, spring onion (v) $6.00
Southern fried chicken, slaw, BBQ sauce DIY bao steamed buns $14.00
Paneer, roasted capscicum, coriander chutney bao steamed buns $6.00
Salt and pepper calamari, baby kale, pickled carrot, nuoc cham $11.50
If you think the food looks good in these pictures then I can assure you that they tasted good as well. Le Boy and I enjoyed everything that we had ordered. My favourites in particular were the cauliflower tacos and vegetarian steamed baos. Le Boy thought the crinkle cut chips were amazing even though he can’t really handle his spices quite well and equally enjoyed the fried chicken steamed baos.
Food came out in a timely manner and staff were really friendly and helpful. The entrance to Kuku Mama is not obvious as the staircase entrance is quite small and the only indication you have of a restaurant being at the to of the staircase was a large sized menu printed to the left side. Overall, we had a great time at Kuku Mama and would definitely be coming back here again in the future.
