ABOUT Mama Blu’s Kitchen
Top Caribbean Restaurants

Mama Blu’s Kitchen is Melbourne’s only Caribbean restaurant.  Their menu draws its inspiration from the spice and variety of foods that the Caribbean promises.  Classics such as Stamp and Go, Jerk Chicken and Curried Goat are where they  begin, but given the exotic influences that define the Caribbean they play from there.

Chef Stephanie Kamener has been bringing Caribbean food to Melbourne for many years beginning at Blue Rhythm Café in Hawthorn and then at Babble on Babylon in Elwood.  Stephanie did her training in Michelin star restaurants in London, and she combines the classical styles she learnt here with the less orthodox styles of the Caribbean.

When you think of Caribbean flavours you need to imagine blending the flavours of the people that have made up the Caribbean History Spanish, African, Indian, Mexican, South American, British and then put them over a BBQ.  The food is full of flavour without being blisteringly hot.

Jerk is a smoky mixture of All Spice, Honey, chilli and herbs and is sensational as the classic Jerk Chicken or Pork but is no less a treat when it's served with mushrooms and eggplant.  The Curried Goat is a wonderful dish, but then so is the lesser known, Run Down which is a mix of tropical vegetables cooked with coconut milk and spices.

As wheat and dairy aren’t staples in the Caribbean, Caribbean food allows gluten free, vegetarian and vegan dining to be joyous.  Many options for these diets are simply part of the  normal menu.

The bar focuses on Rum both as cocktails and as a serious exploration of the lesser known digestive.  They have a range of rums to explore from all over the Caribbean.
