At least once a week, my family orders something for lunch or dinner from a local restaurant. Not only does this help a local business, but it helps me because I don’t have to cook!
This week, we ordered from Mamma Flora’s Trattoria located in the shopping center next to the Shoprite at 1750 N Olden Ave in Ewing.
This is not the first time that we have ordered from here, but it’s one of those places that has so many good things on the menu that can easily add up, so we typically only order every once in a while. This time we ordered for lunch to take advantage of the reduced prices. We got the Salmon Champagne (one of this week’s specials), Penne with Vodka Sauce and Grilled Chicken, a Kid’s Spaghetti and Meatballs, and a slice of Pumpkin Cheesecake.
The salmon filet was about 6-8 ounces and had a very creamy champagne Dijon sauce with mushrooms and green beans. It was perfectly cooked and the sauce was very decadent, I would absolutely order this the next time it’s available. This was enough for two meals.
This meal is actually listed on their menu as Lunch Pasta with Vodka Sauce, you have to select the type of pasta you want and the meat you want to add in. The meat ranges from $5-$9 extra. This is so flavorful and easily one of my family’s favorite local pasta dishes. This is another dish that will easily last you for two meals.
This kid’s meal is huge! It’s a basic pasta dish with a very chunky sauce that I feel should be smoother for a child’s meal but my daughter didn’t seem to mind.
This may look a little plain, and to be honest I was actually surprised there was not any whipped cream, but it was really delightful. Delicious, creamy and full of pumpkin flavor, a perfect fall dessert.
We absolutely love Mamma Flora’s, and have never experienced any issues with ordering or the quality of their food. A couple of our favorites that we would recommend would be the Hot Wings (we used to bring a tray of their honey BBQ to family events), Fried Mozzarella (not mozzarella sticks, these are squares and amazing), Chicken Marsala, any of their burgers, Salmon Amalfi (Dinner Special), Apple Streusel Cheesecake, and Chocolate Fudge Cake. Hope this helped!
