Food trucks offer a delicious culinary experience on wheels… after all, we are the Motor City.
Sunny weather calls for outdoor seating while enjoying a bite to eat (or beverage). Food Trucks, growing in popularity, are the perfect solution. These food trucks cover a variety of food options, sure to leave your mouth watering. What’s more – you can follow them wherever they go or rent them for your next event!
It may be the newest food truck to roll into the area, but founder Godwin Ihentuge is no stranger to the Detroit food scene. Serving West-African and New Orleans inspired dishes like suya shrimp and grits, jollof rice, West African burgers, and Caribbean jerk chicken and waffles (the jerk chicken just the won Best Presentation at Burger Battle 2017).
