Mama Nina's

You guys know how much I love food.
Well,  there's a restaurant in my town that a lot of my friends & co-workers were recommending for me to try called Mama Nina.

I had made plans with my cousin who lives in the area, and we both enjoy getting our grub on, so this worked out perfectly lol.
I had my mother snap some photos of my outfit.  It had been raining off and on all day, but it was still warm outside!


Don't worry, I'm wearing shorts underneath my blouse lol.
Wearing an American Apparel sheer blouse, BDG shorts, and Michael Kors creme patent leather wedges
Jewelry.
My cousin already knew the deal, he was just watching/making fun of me the whole time :p

Thankfully it wasn't raining by the time we got to the restaurant (because I wanted to sit outside), and we were luckily able to get seated right away!


The restaurant is located on the historic/downtown part of the city, and I always enjoy going down there for the scenery!

As soon as we got seated, we were immediately served with fresh garlic bread.  It was soooo yummy!
They also give you a complimentary glass of wine (I was unaware of this, so I brought my own, and there wasn't even a corkage fee)!


Ok, at this point I would suggest getting a glass of water before continuing to read this post.  Food pictures shortly following will most likely cause instant salivation.

Then the food came out...


I ordered the spaghetti and meat sauce with mushrooms.  Everything is made fresh to order, so you can really freestyle any dish!

Can't you just tell from the picture how thick & creamy that sauce was?  It was seriously straight cream.  It was so delicious!  Christian ordered the Angel Hair Gorgonzola. "Sauteed with baby lobster, shrimp, scallops, and jumbo lump crab meat in a vodka gorgonzola basil cream sauce."  I only had a few bites, but man oh man.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere and energy of Mama Nina, a real Mom & Pop type place.  The owner was pretty active with the customers the whole time we were dining.  Helping seat tables, boxing up food, greeting customers...  He was such a sweet older man, always smiling, and I made sure to tell him it was my first time dining there, and how I thought the food was fantastic!  



I ate a good portion of my entree, and it didn't even look like I touched it when I was finished lol.  Of course I got it boxed up, and I actually finished the rest of it last night (a tear fell down my right eye with the last bite lol).  I  had asked to look at the dessert menu, but I knew better than to order anything haha!  I'll definitely be back!

P.S.  I totally missed the season 4 premiere of True Blood last night, so I'm going to find it online and watch it asap!  How was it?  Does anyone watch TB?
