Pricey mangoes at Mango Mama

Mango Mama Cafe Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato Mango Mama Cafe Ltd. is a simple, brightly lit restaurant with booth seating that comfortably seats four and a fifth awkwardly with an extra chair. You order by ticking off a menu sheet -- sort of like dim sum. There is no "customer service" per se except they check if you're ready and bring your order to the table.

The mangoes here are Philippine Mangos, which are supposedly the sweetest in the world and also hideously expensive here for being imported. If you don't care about that, you will feel like you are overpaying for simple things like adding some fresh mangoes to your fluffy ice, or getting a "fresh mango pancake" weighing in at $10.95. Which I got (see pics below).

The crepe is thin and filled with mango cubes plus whipped cream (?). Also takes a while to make -- longer than my friend's mango fluffy ice.

The fluffy ice comes out looking like a pile of phyllo pastry, and strangely keeps that look for a very long time. Portion is also huge for $4.95 -- similar to Icy Bar, but instead of unlimited condensed milk, your ice is flavoured here. Great for sharing and just hanging out for a while, especially since it doesn't melt on you so quickly.
