Today we’d like to introduce you to Hungry Mob. The Creators shared their story with us below:
Hungry Mob literally came about with a conversation over dinner in Detroit. Coming from two of the best food capitals in the world, Toronto and NYC, our options for food in Detroit were slim. Options meaning, Caribbean foods from all over the islands and foods that were fresh, with fresh ingredients and packed organic flavor. We also discovered many in Michigan see Caribbean food as just Jamaican food when there are 700 Caribbean Islands to choose from with different cuisines.
That being said, we started Hungry Mob to add to the culinary genius of Detroit and host Caribbean Food Experiences. We merge food, music, and art to create a Caribbean vibe that many enjoy!
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Not only was the search for good local chefs challenging, but looking for Caribbean grocery stores was very slim as well. We had to contact our families from the East Coast and Canada to send Caribbean products via mail or when visiting; we have also flown in Chefs to really capture the island authentication. Understanding that the Caribbean population in Metro Detroit makes up a small part of the population, we also focus on catering to those who are not Caribbean and are in search of good food based on their travels.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
We celebrate Caribbean culture to the fullest! As we host Caribbean Food Experiences throughout Metro Detroit, we put our heart and soul into making each experience unique. Our events are grounded in three key philosophy;
1. Flavors that awaken your taste and smell while showcases the islands.
2. Music that compliments the food so your soul vibes with your taste buds.
3. Good Food, Good Vibes only!
We are proud to be a part of the culinary community of Detroit. We are proud to showcase Caribbean culture in a new way here. Lastly, we are very proud to continue the tradition of food bringing people together as our Jamaican families have for many years.
If you had to, what characteristic of yours would you give the most credit to?
Our Jamaican background is instrumental in how we approach cuisine. As well, coming from Toronto and NYC, we have been exposed to many different foods from all over the world which has enhanced our culinary vision.
