Italian restaurant Mama Lou’s has added an indulgent, pescatarian-friendly dish to their menu – the baked squid ink risotto.
The star of Mama Lou’s baked squid ink risotto is the moist, black arborio rice underneath, slowly cooked in a savory squid ink sauce that’s strong in flavor and aroma (squid ink fans may not be able to resist)!
Incorporated into the rice are baby squid heads for chewy texture, and on top is a generous serving of garlicky, tangy aioli. Everything is topped off with melted cheese, bread crumbs, and a drizzle of roasted pimiento sauce, making for a flavorful spoonful of creamy, cheesy rice with an al dente bite every time.
It’s a rich dish though, so it may be best to pair it with a lighter entrée or a squeeze of lemon juice for some acidity.
Mama Lou’s newest risotto offering is available in happy size (P995), good for 3-5 people, at their branches in Evia Lifestyle Center; Solenad, Nuvali; Ayala Malls the 30th; and Ayala Malls UP Town Center.
