WEDNESDAY 18TH OCTOBER – MANGO BOTTOMS
Balham-ites are continuously blessed, with a large selection of coffee shops, small independent restaurants and some unique pubs, all on their doorstep. With the latest count of almost 30 coffee shops in Balham, it was good to see something different had opened in the area.
Earlier this year Mango Bottoms, a traditional Caribbean restaurant opened up on Balham High Road, serving up delicious home-cooked Caribbean dishes such as Curried Goat, Spicy Jerk Chicken Wings and Salt Fish Fritters.
Last night we went for a visit and took advantage of their new SLICE Card offer, 15% off your bill, plus £1 will be donated to local charities in the borough of Wandsworth. This offer runs all day, every Tuesday.
We were welcomed in by a friendly waitress and also greeted by Carol, the chef and business owner of Mango Bottoms. Carol told us that she’s dedicated to cooking food from the heart, with all the classic dishes and family recipes that have been perfected and cooked with heart & soul over the years.
Along with their tasty food menu, you can get into the Caribbean vibes with a cocktail. We had a classic Rum Punch and a cocktail called ‘Down The Road’ made with rum, ginger, apple and pear juice and… all cocktails are served with bright straws and cocktail umbrella’s – what fun!
We ordered the chicken wings, Jerk Chicken and Curried Goat; all dishes are served with a large amount of rice and peas, plantain and a selection of seasonal vegetables. We were more than happy with our food choices, everything was delicious and you could certainly tell everything was cooked from the heart.
Mango Bottoms is a traditional Caribbean style eatery, serving classic home-cooked dishes, classic fun cocktails, DJ’s on a Friday and they also offer a full vegan menu on Thursday’s. If you love supporting local independent businesses, then give Mango Bottoms a visit soon.
Don’t forget to take your SLICE Card on a Tuesday to get 15% off your bill, with £1 being donated to charity.
