What’s in the menu?

Plantains

Plantains are big in the Haitian culture and diet. If you go to Haiti, you will eat plantains in one form or another --- fried, broiled, in smoothie, ripe, green, with the street vendors, at restaurants, in parties, with the neighbors, and anywhere food is sold. You will not escape plantains.

Naked Plantains – These plantains are sweet, 100% gluten free, and vegan

Pieces of ripe plantains fried in olive oil

Spicy Plantains – These plantains are sweet, 100% gluten free, and vegan

Rice

Rice is big in the Haitian diet. We eat it plain, plain with sauce, cooked with veggies, or with black, pinto, or red beans. Rice is served with every main meal

Di ri kolé ak pwa nwa – Gluten Free and Vegan

Steamed Jasmine rice cooked with black beans in fresh in house organic coconut milk, fresh pressed garlic, and locally grown herbs sautéed in olive oil

La Belle Jérémienne rice (mixed veggie rice) – Gluten Free and Vegan

La Belle Jérémienne means “The Beautiful Lady from Jérémie.” Jérémie is the town where we were born and where our family still lives. The “beautiful lady” we are referring to while naming that rice is none other than my beautiful mother. In Haiti, we make all sorts of mixed veggie rice. Growing up, the most common mixed veggie rice in our house was made with cabbage and carrots or just with spinach. For this upcoming pop up, we are throwing in all sorts of fresh locally grown veggies such as: cabbage, carrots, crimini mushrooms, green beans, asparagus, and any other vegetable we find in Saturday markets around town the weekend before the pop up. All of these veggies will simmer in fresh coconut milk, fresly pressed garlic, and fresh herbs before we slowly add the jasmine rice to let the steam do the cooking

Chicken Wings – Gluten Free

Six whole wings quickly fried in olive oil with no coating or breading of any form

The wings are served with our tasty tropical sauce made with popular tropical fruits such as pineapple, mango, coconut, a hint of habanero pepper, and fresh herbs

Oax Tail – Gluten Free

Three pieces of oax tail marinated in our uniquely tasty creole marinade and served in a tasty sauce with red potatoes, broccoli, bell peppers, and slices of red onions

Sauteed Okra – Gluten free and vegan

Fresh okra sautéed in olive oil with a blend of fresh garlic and green onions

Vegan Option

Portabella bourré

The word « bourré » means «stuffed » in French. In America, when we make stuffed tomatoes, bell peppers, apples, or stuffed anything else, the French would say, they are making « whatever it is, bourré . » In Haiti, we make « poulet bourré » (chicken), « dinde bourrée » (turkey) for Christmas, Easter, or for big celebrations like baptisms, weddings, first communions, or réveillons, which are the parties being held in the nights preceding or during the Christmas and New Year’s Holidays season. Instead of the regular stuffing, we mostly use ground beef as the base

The potabella bourré being offered in our second pop up is a baked portabella mushroom previously marinated in our creole marinade then filled with layers and layers of tasty deliciousness: avocado butter, beets in rosemary vinaigrette, pommes de terre persillées (potatoes with parsley), steamed carrottes persillées (carrots with parsley) in an onion vinaigrette topped with fresh watercress and pieces of fresh red onions
