A fabulous little Portuguese eatery that can be found on Cowbridge Road East in Cardiff, Mãe Maria invites locals and visitors to the Welsh capital to enjoy a wide variety of mouth-watering dishes.
This welcome is now extended to tastecard members, who can partake in all of the dishes served on the a la carte menu at a superb price, providing they call in advance and produce their card upon request of the bill.
Beginning with one of the sublime starters, from a list that includes a scrumptious selection of fried calamari, a delectable garlic bread number, and a wondrous Taste of Portugal plate that incorporates a deep-fried prawn rissole, a meat rissole and a cod fish cake, diners can consider their appetite thoroughly whetted for the delights to come.
Next up, the main courses available are just as divine and include a host of meat and seafood based choices, as well as the odd vegetarian and vegan options. Particularly tempting examples of such can be seen in the form of the gratifying Francesinha, a moist baked sandwich filled a range of thinly sliced meats and melted cheese before being topped with a fried egg and their own delicious sauce, the glorious Esparaguete do Mar, spaghetti mixed with seafood and salmon, and the amiable vegetarian lasagne.
Be it for a casual evening out with the family, an intimate repast with that special someone, or a catch up with some old friends, everybody is catered in style at the Portuguese haven that is Mãe Maria.
Please Note: The tastecard discount is not available on Celebration Days including, but not limited to, Valentine's Day, Mothering Sunday, Father's Day, etc.
