African Experience Series III: Mama Mia’s in Lilongwe, Malawi, East Africa

Looking for fine Italian Cuisine and Great Service while visiting Malawi, Africa?  One option and a pleasant surprise was Mama Mias. It’s the choice of Expatriates, local Gentry and knowledgeable travelers passing thru Malawi’s Capital.  (This includes Actor Ewan McGregor who has been spotted Carbo Loading at the local hot spot several times while on his “Long Way Around” Cross Africa Tours.)

Our dinner started with Antipasto selected by the Restaurant’s Maestro Paulo who opened the operation in 1999.  We ventured on to Seafood Spaghetti, Penne Arrabiata, Pizza, Roasted Prawns, and Calamari.  The Pasta was served Al Dente, the wood oven baked pizza was delicious and Seafood was fresh & carefully prepared.  Paolo’s sources produce locally and imports from South Africa.  The Wine list included Italian options at a Premium but the fine South African Vintages were reasonably priced and could not be ignored.  A great Italian Dining Experience in the Warm Heart of Africa?  Who would have thought?
