This simple, yet delicious street food is one of Serena’s first food souvenirs from her childhood in Kenya. She discovered crunchy cassava fries at the “Lighthouse” where her family spent nearly every Sunday watching the sunset over the Indian Ocean.
“The Lighthouse, a famous hangout for locals, is an ocean-front drive lined with street vendors selling cassava chips, coconut water, chili mango and other local favorites,” recalls Serena, “every time I eat this dish it takes me back to those carefree, happy days.”
Eat Me makes a gourmet version of these delectable cassava fries by serving them with onion chutney, avocado purée, tomato-chili coulis and pecan nuts. Yum!
