Now that you've worked up an appetite, the Latin feast at MamSer begins...

...starting with the Patacones (P 250), deep-fried saba pressed flat served with a side of chimichurri sauce. The deep nutty notes of chimichurri adds a tasty layer to the sweet local plantain. The contrasting sweet, salty and savory notes and delectable textures tease the palate for that first deep dive into Latin flavors.

The spicy hints from the fresh chilies add a flavorful depth with each bite, perfectly finished by the sour notes of the yellow pepper vinegar and Pisco brandy. The addition of Cornicks is pure genius. 

Fork-tender and savory pork knuckles gently stewed and simmered with bacon, chorizo and pork belly in thick black bean sauce brings full-on flavors to the palate. The Fejoada Brazil (P 610) is a comforting dish with the subtle sweetness of tender pork and black beans laying the foundation for its savory base kicked up by the mildly sharp notes of the chorizo and bacon. 

The multiple layers of flavors from the pork, chorizo, bacon and black beans combine for an unrestrained savory richness and a taste of Brazil in Poblacion. Best paired with steamed white rice, the Fejoada Brazil at MamSer is a serious meal in itself guaranteed to satisfy any appetite. 

In between bites, enjoy the soft and crisp Coxinha (P 300) with deep fried dough stuffed with a creamy chicken filling and served with the signature UNWND Sauce.

MamSer has that covered too with their Choripan (P 420), Torta Cubana (P 590), Vegetarian Cubana (P 560) and Porchetta Sandwich (P 580).

Fork-tender beef is a mainstay of Latin cuisine, and MamSer serves up another flavorful snapshot of Latin flavors with the Ropa Vieja (P 490). Hand-pulled strands of beef simmered in tomato sauce and served over patacones brings sweet and savory notes in another play on contrasting notes. 

Rich, clean and deep flavors, a bite of tender beef followed by the patacones completes the experience. 

The day's freshest catch is then served next with the Pescado a lo Macho (P 580), a fully loaded with with pan-fried fish fillet, squid, clams and succulent mussels in a wine and yellow pepper sauce.

The briny sweetness and clean, uncluttered flavors of the medley of fresh seafood are perfectly complemented by the light yet flavorful wine and yellow pepper sauce. For those looking for a fresh seafood option, this one hits the spot. 

The Lomo Soltado (P 440) is a uniquely Latin spin on beef and potatoes with sautéed strips of beef tenderloin with onions and tomatoes mixed with spiced fries. A bite of the fries releases a burst of savory notes from the sauce, completed by the robust flavors of the beef.

Beef and potatoes are always a winning combo, but add a dash of vibrant Latin soul with tomatoes and onions and you'll soon be going for another bite. Simple yet hearty and comforting, it's flavors like these that adds to the chill vibe at MamSer

One more round of Caipirinha? Yes, please...

The Latin fiesta of flavors continues at MamSer with one more savory dish...

...with the Aji de Galina (P 440), a tasty chicken course with tender fillet stewed in yellow pepper sauce and black olives topped with egg. The bold and punchy flavors of the yellow pepper sauce becomes a recurring theme in the menu, pairing well with a variety of meats and seafood. 

The gentle notes of the tender chicken are kicked up by the yellow pepper sauce without overwhelming its delicate flavors followed by the sharpness of black olives. The complex yet delicately balanced play on flavors makes this a perfect introduction to Latin flavors, draping the palate with a lingering richness in every bite.

Other equally tempting savory courses include the Arroz Con Pollo (P 470), Chicken Mole (P 400), Pollo Encachuetado (P 420), Frango Acebolado (P 480), Argentinian Aglio e Olio (P 390) with chili flakes and salsa verde and Beef Churrasco (P 500).
