Afro-fusion food popup Little Liberia is hosting its midsummer event in Detroit on Sunday.
Owner and founder Chef Ameneh Marhaba launched Little Liberia in 2016. Marhaba says people will get to sample unique cuisines at the event.
“So in Liberia, when you go to a party, you’ll find things like Jollof rice, chicken wings [and] plantains,” Marhaba explains. “And I wanted to bring that because it’s part of the summer vibe, and I wanted people to be able to have that experience.”
All foods served are halal and offered à la carte, with prices ranging from $9-$14.
Last summer Marhaba won $100,000 from the Hatch Detroit Contest that awards funding to small businesses. She hopes to open a brick-and-mortar location of Little Liberia next year in Midtown Detroit with the funds.
