Chez Dodo is a Mauritian food cart located
|Chez Dodo when at N Vancouver and N Fremont|
The name "Chez Dodo" is an appropriate one; Mauritius was the home of the dodo bird before the Portuguese came to the island and killed the bird off. Today, Mauritius is a mixture of several ethnic backgrounds.
The menu is a three-step process:
(1) Choice of flatbread, noodles, or rice
(2) Choice of entree (vegetarian or meat); and
(3) How spicy a curry option you want
I went with the Chicken Curry and Pan Fried Noodles ($6.99). The chicken curry is infused with Mauritian spices and flavors, using ingredients like thyme, curry leaves, and red wine. The chicken was extremely moist, shredded dark meat that soaked up the flavors of Mauritius.
Shyam said he used yaki soba noodles for his pan-fried noodles, but otherwise would use "mee foon" (thin rice noodles).
Shyam presented me with a heaping pile of food. You should have seen the panda's eyes light up as he received this feast. It was a glorious mound of noodles, shredded chicken, and spices. Just a nice hint of habanero kick to take this dish to the next level. This is a food cart where you will get your money's worth.
Shyam also prepared a chutney, a wonderful minty condiment that can go on top of the noodles, rice, or entree.

Shyam sells his food at Whole Foods, Market of Choice, Alberta Grocery Co-Op, People's Food Co-Op, Food Fight, and Sheridan Fruit Company. By popular demand, Shyam has also served his food at Portland Timbers soccer games.
Huge portions, delicious food, and an awesome spicy option. An elite, highly recommended food cart! 9.25/10
