Mauritian Food at Marcel and Sons
Last weekend my Sunday brunch looked and tasted a little bit more exotic than your average roast pork and Yorkshires. I actually had Mauritian food at Marcel and Sons in Elephant and Castle.
I don't venture to this area of London all that often, but apparently Elephant and Castle is the next up and coming area of London. I mean they even have their own little version of Box Park / Pop Brixton called The Artworks Elephant. It's a collection of shipping containers set around a little courtyard, which houses several cafes, eateries and other businesses. This also happened to be the location of Marcel and Sons.
They were lovely though as I ordered a portion of these as well as a Bol Renverse,which was really nice as well. The flavours reminded me a little bit of Indonesian food, which makes sense, since the guy serving us explained that the Mauritian cuisine was influenced by numerous different cultures and peoples. A bit of a mishmash, really, but a lovely mishmash nonetheless.
