The twisted hot mess of Mama’s Buoi share plates

The Vietnamese re-telling is one hot mess with open tables that allow groups to spill into one another, semi private booths with accents of fresh herbs with panoramic views into the kitchen action!

Many northern Vietnamese dishes are crab centred and this rendition takes back the ownership of the crastacean based dish back from the ties into a mountain of sculpture and colour.

The communal spirit and vibe of casual dining forms the essence of Mama’s Buoi, in spite of the pronounced updates to classics and beautiful plating, that could rival a chef hat or michelin grade dish.  The design of dishes to share keeps things down to earth.  This is typical dish often placed on altars in the home, used in Vietnamese culture as an offering to ancestors and other deceased relatives.

Caramelized Pork Belly $25: Braised in coconut juice served with boiled eggs

Two eggplant dishes are on offer, a smokey oyster sauce based vegetarian dish, or super spicy palette explosion of intense heat.   The more famous Vietnamese dishes typically hum crunchy end notes of raw freshness, but eggplant is one of the more prominent ones of cooked vegetable.  The zing of fresh chillis, lemongrass and ginger is prominent without compromise in this dish (pictured below).

The service team works the space in unison with impeccable timing in ordering and  attending.

Vietnamese is considered one of the healthiest cuisines in the world with its use of fresh produce and slow cooked broths.  Mama’s Buoi stays true to the culture and taste with unique signatures that aesthetically revitalize and enhanced flavouring.
