My parents braved the heavy rain and the hungry crowds and finally decided to push through with our trip to Mama Chit’s. This place was almost unnoticeable whenever we would pass by this coffee shop after attending Saturday mass at the church nearby. But thanks to the endorsement of a certain VERY influential TV personality, Mama Chit’s business boomed and the people started pouring in.
You can’t really see it, but the place gets packed at any time of the day, even on weekdays. It doesn’t help that the interior is quite cramped and tiny. Luckily, we didn’t have to wait too long.
From the wall decors to the Beatles music playing in the background… Vintage. Vintage everywhere.
Menu. Nothing much…. Just burgers, sandwiches, and pasta.
Their fridge filled with imported sodas definitely caught my attention. According to Mama Chit herself, this soda collection started out as a hobby, until they decided to sell them to their customers. This strawberry soda is my favorite! I wanted to buy another one to bring home with me… Too bad one soda costs PhP 50.00.
Pepper Steak Sandwich. It wasn’t what I expected, but… Eh, it was alright.
Mama Chit’s burger and cheeseburger. I honestly liked these two better than my steak sandwich. Dee-licious! The patty is all-meat, unlike those frozen patties that they use in fast-food restaurants. The toasted buns that they used were nice too.
Creamy Pesto pasta. Very tasty, but they need to increase the size of the serving.
Admittedly, Mama Chit’s food isn’t as fancy as some of the more upscale burger joints. But if you’re looking for homemade, flame-grilled goodness then Mama Chit’s is the place to be.
Mama Chit’s is located at 278 J.P. Rizal St., San Roque, Marikina City.
