Nigerian couple, Godshelter and Bisola Oluwalogbon have made Nigerians proud after winning the best Street Food Vendors In New York City.
According to The Vendy Awards – the annual street food competition which determines who is crowned best street food vendor in NYC, DF Nigerian is the greatest food truck operating in the Big Apple.
Founded by Godshelter and Bisola Oluwalogbon, the truck’s been going for two years.
Watch video below:
It all started with Godshelter selling meals out of the back of his car outside the Nigerian embassy in the middle of Manhattan.
Born in Ghana and raised in Nigeria, he immigrated to the US in 2001 and started working in various restaurants before catering for members of his church.
The DF Nigerian food truck started two years ago and the couple has just signed a lease on a restaurant.
In New York – a city with so many different ethnicities – it’s fantastic to see a proper home-grown West African business winning the hearts of diners.
After all, those of us who are from Ghanian and Nigerian backgrounds knowhow good the food is, but it’s not a particularly mainstream cuisine. At least, not yet.
