Mama Mia Place
Mama Mia Place's owner recalls childhood days spent at his grandfather's farm, standing beside the warmth of the clay oven as he watches his grandmother bake fresh bread and empanadas. A point of family pride, empanada recipes are passed down from generation to generation and are crafted through time and expertise; Mama Mia's empanada recipe is no exception. Inside his own restaurant, chefs knead and bake fresh dough inside an open-view kitchen, crafting traditional cinnamon-dusted churros or pastries filled with dulce de leche, homemade cream caramel, which are made following family recipes handed down for three generations. Freshly baked wares travel to the gleaming glass bakery cases under the front counter for display and safekeeping in a warm, cozy environment.
