Haitian native Nahika Hillery believes her culture is sorely underrepresented in the United States. As food is a major means of bringing people together, what better way to foster conversation than a food trailer? You can catch Nahika rolling through Austin, TX in Kreyòl Korner, serving up a bounty of authentic Haitian cuisine.
Nahika and her team use only fresh herbs and spices that they mix and match to cultivate the bold flavors associated with Haitian cooking. Sink your teeth into some sweet-and-savory stuffed plantain bowls. Or, enjoy a blast of fiery flare via a spicy meatball. There’s ample amounts of well-seasoned meats served up over the rice of the day. Don’t forget a refreshing cup of mint-infused water to quench your thirst. Stomach rumbling? Then either find Kreyòl Korner out on the street or, even better, have ‘em out to your next event.
