How do you feel about being nominated for Bim’s Best? Great! Excited but still shocked that someone can choose me.
What do you love the most about what you do? I just like that I can put a smile on somebody’s face and actually serve people. I learned to cook growing up doing work around the temple [as] I’m a Spiritual Baptist and we have the Cou-cou village so all of my training comes from there.

How do you feel about being nominated for Bim’s Best?

What do you love the most about what you do? I really, really love interacting with my customers, man! It’s so much fun to put a smile on someone’s face. Our food is stuff we develop from the ground up. It’s stuff we come up with. People ask if we have any culinary background or certificates and we say no, it’s just from experimenting in the kitchen so it’s really fulfilling when people love what we do.
