Mama’s Buoi is a homage to the mother of the restaurant owner Bau Hoang, whose parents began working in the rag trade to feed their family. The Mama’s Buoi menu is inspired by both his Mum and Aunt’s home-cooked goodness. Their best childhood memories are of family meals and the banter that echoed around the dining room.
