Chef Abudu

Cuisine: African-Caribbean Fusion

Chef Abudu moved to the United States in 2001, and Utah in 2016. He is from Lamu, an island off the coast of Kenya. Abudu 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!
