Dear PoPville – Ma-Ma’s Southern Cuisine

“Dear PoPville,

I recently went to Ma-Ma’s Southern Cuisine with my girlfriend and had a great experience.

Ma-Ma, herself, served us and treated us to some lemonade on the house. I had the broiled “Sadie Mae”, a tender and flavorful trout filet with a wonderful side of greens and potato salad. My girlfriend had the “Irving”, named after the street, presumably. This dish included tender short ribs with bbq sauce, sauteed spinach and macaroni and cheese. Ma-Ma was so nice. One thing she warned us about is that we may want to call ahead to make sure certain dishes are available. I originally wanted the “Jim Graham” but she had sold out by the time we arrived. There’s also karaoke on Friday and Saturday nights. I definitely recommend Ma-Ma’s Southern Cuisine to all of the readers.”

Great to hear a good review here. Ma Ma’s Southern Cuisine is located at 3118 Georgia Ave, NW?

Any other fans?

    Sweet, I’ll have to try it. Just grilled up some nice back ribs tonight on the pecan wood, yummm.

    Someone named a food dish after Jim Graham? I wouldn’t eat anything named after this man.

    • Hugely curious: what is the “Jim Graham”?

        I don’t know, but at a Chinese restaurant it would be cream of sum yung guy.

          Are you sure it wasn’t on the Special (interests) Menu?

            Is it delivered by taxi?

  • WDC

    Jim Graham sold out? Naaaaah.

    Anon, homophobic jokes are just so cool. Get over yourself.

    Some friends and I walked up to MaMa’s for the karaoke several weeks ago on a Friday night. Everyone was really friendly. Courtney, the karaoke person, was fabulous, albeit a little haphazard as far as karaoke goes, but apparently runs karaoke up & down GA Avenue several nights a week. People seemed to be having a good time and enjoying the food. The drinks were ridiculously overpriced – $12 for a mixed drink, wine was cheaper at $6 a glass.

    In case anyone else was having trouble picturing where 3118 Georgia Ave. NW might be… it’s on Georgia between Irving and Kenyon, on the west side of the street. It’s one block north of the Bruce Monroe park.

    I’ve driven by here several times, but never noticed the sign for Ma-Ma’s. Good to know that it’s there, and that it’s recommended!

    Absolutely love, love, love this place!! Small but very clean & nice decor inside! I’ve been here a few times & the staff is always friendly & the food is consistently good but I’ve never had the “Jim Graham” (salmon)!! I’ll try it my next visit!
