Weep not, former acolytes of Umami in Cow Hollow. Mamanoko has risen with the Umami menu, like a phoenix from the ashes, in the former Mamacita space on Chestnut Street. You’ll find tasty rolls, plus the amazing tuna tataki and vegetable tempura fritters we love dearly. Prepare to spend more than you might expect for dinner, but also prepare to be very happy with your food.
