Menu Details from Head Chef Mark:
- Malagasy Lasopy: Pureed vegetable soup. Typically made with whatever vegetables are on hand. Common choices are typically; carrots, tomatoes, green onions, green beans, turnips, leeks and potatoes. We have found green beans and turnips to be in most of the recipes we have found which makes it so unique! We use our house made vegetable stock, but can easily be made with a store bought one as well. Authentically, a few drops of Sakay is dropped on top for an extra spicy kick, then soaked up with a baguette on the side.
- Malagasy Romazava: A braised beef stew, which is the national dish of Madagascar and a type of laoka- side dishes that are traditionally served with rice. This "laoka" is a stew made with a combination of local greens, pararess, anamamy, mustard greens and of course beef.
- Koba: Possibly the most interesting dish we learned about from a local vendor who has visited Madagascar. Our pastry chef had already planned out the dessert of Malagasy Cake, but we could not say no to including this as well! This dessert often found at street carts around Madagascar is a "peanut pate" slow cooke in Banana Leaf for 24 hours.
