Mamma Roja – A Real taste of Mexico in Oklahoma City

Located in one of the most scenic spots in Oklahoma City, Mamma Roja Mexican Kitchen has being serving wonderful tex-mex food for almost one year.

The restaurant has an inspiring and relaxing atmosphere even before you enter the building. Inside, the authentic pottery, décor and paintings create a very pleasant, southwestern ambience. This relaxing environment makes the dinning experience even more enjoyable.

In addition to the traditional salsas, Mamma Roja’s homemade habenero salsa is unique and flavorsome – the perfect blend of roasted peppers and roasted tomatoes.

My husband ordered the Tijuana Tacos with braised brisket and it was very well accompanied by smoky refried beans. It was really delicious! Unfortunately, I couldn’t have more than one bite. I was too busy enjoying my tasty shrimp fajita, served with grilled peppers and a grilled lemon. The shrimp was flawlessly seasoned and cooked. I enjoyed every single bite of it!

My husband ordered a Mexican flan for dessert that he quoted as “better than his mom’s!” And that’s really impressive! The right amount of condensed milk is definitely the key of this delightful dessert. I agree with my husband, Mamma Roja’s flan is delicious.

I can’t imagine a more relaxing setting to enjoy a Margarita in a hot day than Mamma Roja’s lakeside gazebo. I have no other choice, but to return to Mamma Roja this summer to enjoy a refreshing drink on the patio paired with homemade tamales or fish tacos with mango salsa.
