Pink Mamma, Paris

I have my favourite eating spots in Paris, but I always like to try somewhere new when I visit. I spotted this latest find on the lovely Lucy’s instagram (check it out, and her gorgeous blog), and so made sure I headed there on my most recent trip over the Channel in the Summer. 

Pink Mamma is the new baby from the Big Mamma group. It opened earlier this Summer in the Pigalle district of Paris, and like all other restaurants in the group it serves up some decent Italian cuisine. 

Pink Mamma specialises in the traditional Fiorentina, a Tuscan specialty which is cooked on a 3m-long grill with a special wood mix, giving the meat a very beautiful, special taste. However, the large trattoria also serves delicious fresh dishes such as fish, salads, pastas and my favourite, Burrata (they even have a section on their main menu dedicated to the glorious cheese). 

We weren't feeling very meaty when we visited in July, so we opted for one of the Burrata dishes - with watermelon and tomatoes, and two pasta dishes to share. Portions are not your typical small Parisien ones, and they do not scrimp on the flavourings - just look at all that truffle!

La fameuse pâte à la truffe; Mascarpone, mushrooms and a lot of fresh truffle


Being a design-building-obsessed lady, this restaurant was not only a delight to eat at, but also a interior dream. The restaurant is housed in a 4-floored building (made of pink tiles I have to add), and each level has been given its own identity.  The decor across each floor is stunning.

This is one place I will definitely be visiting when I'm back in Paris again.
