Baby Mammoth – 3/5
When you are one of three tables dining in a restaurant on a Saturday night, it will always feel a little strange. The service can feel a little obtrusive, the kitchen staff look a little bored and there is always the question lingering… Why aren’t other people dining here?
Baby Mammoth is currently BYO, which thankfully one of our fellow diners had already known. We ordered share plate style from the eclectic menu, as we wanted to try a few of the smaller items. The menu isn’t split into entrees and mains.
We had the ninja wings (sticky soy chicken wings), the beetroot and feta salad, the Cajun calamari, the lamb bobotie loempia (pulled lamb spring rolls) and my favourite, the peri-peri prawns. The prawns were served Mozambique-style as per the menu, with their shells on and with a lovely spicy sauce. Small water bowls with lemon were provided to clean our fingers.
The dishes were all okay, with nothing overly impressing. The service was fine and the many passers-by reading the menu outside and continuing to walk past, was distracting. We headed down to La Cholita to finish off our night with sangria and desserts.
