What is Big Mama?

It is a relatively new restaurant, and its white exterior is very noticeable.

Recommended menu

I recommend the pizzas and pastas, and they have a great set menu!

They also have hamburgers.

How to Order and Points to Note

Once you have decided on a menu, you can place your order on the first floor and pay in advance.

After paying the bill, you will get a receipt and return to your seat.

Only cash was accepted as payment.

Taste of the food

I wanted to order the Bolognese, but they were out of stock, so I ordered the pasta with chicken in green sauce!

It was very easy to eat, with the flavor of the pasta sauce and the vegetables.

The chicken, pea pods, and onions were the ingredients, so if you like healthy dishes, you should definitely order this.

For men, I felt that the amount of food and the hardness of the pasta were a bit insufficient.

I think it’s just right to order the side dishes as well.
