Chef Abudu of Kafé Mamai
Abudu moved to the United States in 2001, and Utah in 2016. He is from an island off the coast of Kenya called Lamu, and has been in the kitchen since he was a child. He's worked various levels in restaurants including owning an eco-lodge with a restaurant in Kenya.
When asked why he wanted to start a business here in Utah, he responded, “it is time to showcase my own experience to the world.” Abudu serves a fusion of African and Caribbean cuisine and is excited to offer these flavors to Salt Lake City!
This week’s Spice To Go dinners offer a unique opportunity for our community to support the International Rescue Committee’s efforts abroad in Yemen.
Chef Abudu will donate 50% of profits from this week’s Spice To Go to the IRC’s continued efforts to support of those experiencing violence, extreme poverty, and famine in Yemen. Please join him in increasing the impact by providing additional donations upon meal pick up. You may also contribute online.
