Hey friends! I am raising money for Café Mamajuana.  I am in the preliminary stages of opening up a full service restaurant in good ol' Burlington, Vermont. I am hoping to open this up to friends, family and to anyone who wishes to donate even just a dollar to support my cause. Many of you know my passion for the food industry and have witnessed my families efforts to mesh food with comfort and joy. I hope to continue my families legacy and grow my company as a woman entrepreneur. Any and all donations will give me a greater chance of success. 

The menu features traditional Dominican cuisine such as; Empanadas,"La Bandera" (The Flag: Rice, Red Beans & Meat/Poultry/Veg), Tortilla Española, Plantains and Chimi Churi Burgers to name a few.  The menu and aesthetic will be reminiscent of Old Hispaniola (The Dominican Republic and Haiti).  Cafe Mamajuana will feature bright pastels and tokens of the African Diaspora such as Vodou, along with remnants of native Taino Indian culture. 


Q.) What is Mamajuana?

A.) Mamajuana is the national libation of The Dominican Republic. The drink was originally prepared by native Taino Indians much like an herbal tea. Contact with Christopher Columbus on the island led to the addition of alcohol to the mixture. The combination of alcohol (wine and rum) with  tree-bark and herbs is said to have many health effects and acts as an aphrodisiac. Cafe Mamajuana will take your tastebuds on a cultural journey through Hispaniola, Africa and Spain much like the routes my ancestors took through time and space.
