Lakaz Maman serves colourful, taste-packed Mauritian street food, created by ex-Masterchef winner Shelina Permalloo. Expect friendly staff, a relaxed atmosphere, and a menu that demands you work through it slowly, from top to bottom. There are some great vegan choices, the butterbean curry being a winner. This restaurant doesn’t serve alcohol, but does serve lovely mocktails and are very happy for you bring your own. There’s a Co-Op just down the road.
We can highly recommend the King Prawn Rougaille and the chicken and prawn ‘Magic Bowl’, which is a sort of chop suey, Malay style, with a lovely fried egg atop – perfect for lunch.
For dessert, you won’t go wrong with the Coco Bun: cool coconut ice cream in a light brioche-style milk bun (but it’s the pool of salted caramel and pistachio nibs that add the fairy dust).
Lakaz Maman’s authentic Mauritian street food is a delight. Go. You won’t be disappointed.
