I recently went to our favourite breakfast place to eat and they had Mexishuka on the menu. It was absolutely amazing and it got me thinking about how nice it would be to have a ” Desishuka ” The wheels in my head started turning and my inner foodie developed the Desishuka. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
