MAM

OPENED 20 DAYS AGO

MAM (pronounced mum) is a new Vietnamese barbecue restaurant, open in Notting Hill.

The restaurant comes from the team behind the two popular East London restaurants Salvation in Noodles.

The Spot:

This is a light and airy space on All Saints Road and has room for 40 people, split between a bar/dining area at the front and a conservatory area at the back.

The Food:

The focus is on skewered meats, cooked on a Robata grill for loads of smoke flavour and served with founder Colin Tu’s mum’s dipping sauce, which is made with pineapple and fermented shrimp paste. It’s a pungent condiment, and one which gave its name to the restaurant (mam refers to the art of fermentation).

The main meat on those skewers will be chicken but there are also specials — think rare breed beef and different types of seafood.

The skewers come with a platter of fun bits and bobs alongside, like rice noodle parcels, herbs, pickles, lettuce leaves and rice paper wrappers, so you can wrap them up in the rice paper or lettuce leaves, or eat them on top of noodles (we’ll be doing all three).

Fans of Vietnamese food will be pleased to learn that there is also pho, the classic noodle soup made with a long-simmered broth, finished with noodles, herbs and condiments.

Finally, they’ve brought some of the classics over from Salvation in Noodles, like their popular fish sauce chicken wings.

The Damage:

Dish prices range from £2.50 to £12.90.

In a Nutshell:

Colin’s inspiration comes from his family recipes and travels and we are loving the look of this menu. London hasn’t had anything new in the way of Vietnamese food for some time and we look forward to seeing how this goes down with Londoners.

One thing’s for sure, it won’t be timid in the flavour department — Colin said he wants the food to “really hit you in the face.”
