Godshelter Oluwalogbon, the chef behind DF Nigerian Food Truck, noticed a distinct lack of food from his native Nigeria in New York City. Food isn’t just important in terms of nutrition. It’s a way of sharing one’s culture with others, which was important to Oluwalogbon and his wife as they were living in a foreign country. The pair decided to right that wrong themselves in the form of their very own food truck. Now, the Oluwalogbons roll around the Big Apple introducing hungry New Yorkers to authentic Nigerian fare.
Given Nigerian food is seriously underrepresented in the NYC culinary scene, stopping by this truck is a great chance to try something new. The massive menu sports tons of traditional dishes that cater to almost every palate. You can try some rich Nigerian stews full of hearty vegetables and aromatic herbs and spices. Have a plate of jollof rice for some plump long-grain rice with a mild fiery kick seasoned with a rich blend of herbs like garlic and ginger. Love yams? Try them Nigerian-style with some silky asaro pottage, the perfect international comfort food. Sound delicious? Then swing by ASAP and give this food a try. Even better? Book DF Nigerian Food Truck for your next event. You won’t regret it.
