Why Vegan Caribbean Food is Making Waves in Brooklyn | Hungry For More | Hungry For More

In an area of Flatbush Brooklyn, known as “Little Caribbean,” the flavors of the islands are on every corner - with jerk chicken, oxtail stew, beef patties, and more. Locals Michael and Nicole Nicholas - aka Aunty Nic and Uncle Mike - wanted to bring the same flavors of their upbringing, but with a healthier twist. Their cafe, Aunts et Uncles, features home recipes with plant-based ingredients, such as the bake & saltfish - a classic and iconic Caribbean breakfast. Their cafe is a tribute to the culture of Flatbush - providing inspiration, comfort, and healthy cuisine to the community they love.

Hungry For More
In our brand new First We Feast documentary series, Hungry for More, we will chronicle the redemptive stories of chefs, home cooks, and entrepreneurs who represent the new vanguard of the food world—hustlers who have carved out their own special lanes and rebelled against the status quo - all while bringing comfort to their communities and beyond. From the Birria MVP of Brooklyn, to the Bronx native trying to take chopped cheese nationwide, and the home cooks turned restaurateurs bringing plant based cuisine to their block in Flatbush - these stories are testaments to how comfort and success sometimes come from the unlikeliest of places.
