Mama Baba is George Calombaris’ newest restaurant and is tucked away in a small side street in South Yarra. I heard about the restaurant at the beginning of the year and planned with Mel for us to go there when it opened. The name comes from George’s parents. One is Greek and the other Italian hence the name Mama Baba and the food celebrates their heritage.
It’s my first visit to one of George’s restaurants. The menu contains a mix of Greek and Italian pastas as well as other influences. The decor is really trendy and one wall is used to store old albums.
