Mama Chit’s is found along J. P. Rizal, Just a block from San Roque Church. Mama Chit, the owner, used had a foreigner for a husband decades back at her prime age but then divorced him. She loved the legacy of her era so she was able to save things to represent that period in her life.
Mama Chit’s has a huge collection of posters, record covers, and portraits of the 80’s. The interior was adorned with vintage items, from 30-year old softdrink bottles, to old car plates from the US, to old print ads, and old photographs. One step into Mama Chit’s and you are immediately transported four, five, six decades back in time.
I find everything beautiful, old and authentic. The place has a good vibe in it. Their style is similar to that of Mile-Hi Diner in Camp John Hay in Baguio City. All the designs, from the old ads to the old photos of family members, go together in harmony.
Let’s take a look at their food.
Peppersteak Sandwich- Php140.00
Generous amount of onions and green bell peppers with steak cuts. Great for those who loves to mix veggies with their meat.
Tomato, lettuce and mayo on a delicious wheat bun. The burger patty was juicy and very tasty. Spiced with black pepper, the flavor of the beef came out and flooded my tastebuds.
Mama Chit’s make us wonder how it feels like to be part of the world’s colorful past. Looking around will bring you down to memory lane that is vibrant and colorful.
