Last Sunday I was lucky enough to be invited to Lakaz Maman to try their menu along with a few Southampton Bloggers. For those of you who don’t know, Lakaz Maman stands for “Mum’s House’ and is the first restaurant opened by Masterchef winner, Shelina Permalloo. Lakaz Maman is a Mauritian street kitchen, nestled in the heart of Southampton, serving the most incredible food.
I went for the Turkey Torpedo. Turkey bacon and chicken sausages on muffin-like bread with a fried egg to finish. In all honesty, I was a little cautious about this however, I was pleasantly surprised. It really was incredible. It was cooked to perfection, the flavours were so intense and with each mouthful, I just kept wanting more. Such a unique dish and something I’ll definitely be trying again!
Around the table, there were others having the cinnamon toast and that looked pretty good as well. I think every one of us kept getting food envy.
If I wasn’t invited here, I would never have known it was there. I absolutely love discovering new restaurants and this will for sure be on my ‘go-to’ list from now on. What’s great is absolutely everything is made on site. From the food itself, to the homemade drinks and even the spices are ground on site. Lakaz Maman epitomises ‘home cooking’.
If anyone is on the look out for a new restaurant to try, then head to Southampton and try Lakaz Maman. Heads up, they’re looking to open up a second restaurant. We were lucky to have Shelina on site for the day where she gave a really interesting speech about her time on Masterchef, what it’s like to open their first restaurant and life now was a new mother. A very interesting lady indeed!
I was invited to Lakaz Maman for free, in exchange of social media shares. All opinions are my own.
