From pork to plantains, a platter of assorted fried delicacies is a staple in
Haiti's street food scene. Like many other Haitian dishes, fritay requires a
great level of patience and attention to perfecting the right balance of
seasoning and acidity. The exterior of each piece of meat yields a crispy shell
while the inside remains tender. And to top it off, fritay is paired with a spicy slaw
called pikliz. Our menu was crafted with that love of fried food in mind.
We hope you enjoy our taste of home.
