Mamalan popped up in Dalston back in the day leading to some north of the river folks to believe that it was a chain. It was not. And in another devastating blow, both Mamalan locations are in South London. The one in Brixton Market is where to get your noodle soup fix when you are finally over ramen, or not really all that into ramen. The slow cooked beef noodle soup will get you through the winters and through summer too. The dumplings are good, but the mama hot wings are a better side option.
