A Small Haitian Restaurant in Tijuana, Mexico

Huge fan of Great Big Story.
I actually wish that we could see a lot of these turned into longform, but I’m happy with the few minutes we get every week.
This one here is a particularly great story and gives me all the feels.
Word around the campfire is that my grandfathers people were from Haiti.
Word around the earf to anyone that knows me knows that I’m down with Mexico.

This Tijuana Restaurant Makes Haitians Feel at Home

The Mexican border town of Tijuana is home to thousands of Haitians. Most are asylum-seekers, stuck in administrative limbo as they await potential entry to the United States. To help them feel more at-home, Fausta Rosalía—owner of a popular lunch spot—decided to switch up her traditional offerings of tacos and quesadillas to better serve the city’s new residents. Now, she’s cooking Haitian food in the hopes that a taste of home will make life a little bit easier for so many.
