I visited the Treacle Market, Macclesfield on 31st March 2013. Mama K's visits Treacle Market, Macclesfield, Wilmslow Artisan Market, Rode Hall Farmers Market, Congleton and Knutsford Artisan Market.


For a taste of authentic Tex Mex hang up your spurs at the All- American MAMA K'S and lasso yourself  an authentic Enchilada or tortilla with refried beans. Join the queue to find out why they're going like hot cakes - or award-winning Tortilla Chips in this case - and buy into the Original American dream.

In front of the striking red and yellow banner, under the sombrero, the team from MAMA K'S are frying rice in large pans and assembling Enchiladas to order. Choose from a wide array of Salsas and Dips and pick-and-mix with salad, rice and Cowboy Beans. Choice is all at MAMA K'S and whether you go for an Authentic Mild Salsa or a more spicy Chipotle Queso Dip is between you and your taste buds: MAMA K'S caters for all.

All the food is made with fresh, natural ingredients, sourced locally whenever possible. The Salsas are zinging with fresh flavours and the Tortilla Chips won a Great Taste gold award in 2012. Try some and see why for yourself.


Authentic Mild Salsa - fresh and full of flavour without the heat

Authentic Roasted Salsa - an amazing roasted flavour with a little more warmth (but not enough to blow your head off)

Ranch Dip - a staple food in America (so they claim), creamy, moreish; slather on any savoury food, salad or vegetable

Chipotle Queso Dip - a smoky, spicy cheese dip 'that will awaken your taste buds'. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. Served warm, and great with tacos or quesadillas.

Authentic Tortilla Chips GREAT TASTE GOLD AWARD 2012 -great with any of the dips , and sprinkle with cheese to make nachos.

Authentic Enchiladas - Cheese and Onion (vegetarian), or beef or chicken, made with homemade tortillas and MAMA K'S red sauce. Eat alone, or with rice, refried beans and salad.

Chilli, cheese corn bread - a heavier bread with a great flavour. Best when dipped in the beans.

Cowboy beans - pinto beans with onions, peppers and spices.

For me the most compelling thing about this stall was that I met a lot of the other street food stall holders - including people I have done reviews on - waiting in the queue for their lunch. Service was brisk and friendly and served by real Americans with an All-American smile. The stall was scrupulously clean with disposable gloves being worn by the cooks. All the Salsas and Dips and Salads looked bright and fresh and vivid; and all made with natural, locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. The Great Taste Gold Award winning Tortilla Chips knocked spots off anything out of a bag. I loved the fact that there was a choice of breads, with the heavier Chilli cheese corn bread being a better option - in my opinion - with the Cowboy Beans.

Waken up your taste buds and try a little Authentic Tex Mex from the people who know what they're talking about - the true American team at MAMA K'S.

'Let's go, Tonto - Hi-yo silver! Away!'

Best wishes,
