I was first introduced to ‘the haven’ one late night outside of a local bar. Krista got the mac-n-cheese and I got the veggie burrito. Everything was incredible, but there was food envy involved — Nothing tastes better than mac-n-cheese at 2 am.
Since then I have been ecstatic whenever I spot the lime green truck at an event or on the corner. I originally thought that the lime green food truck was simply named ‘the haven’ due to the connotations of the word. It is truly a refuge for those in search of ridiculously tasty and wholesome food. I can always count on a bountiful vegetarian option that isn’t a drowned pasta. But here is the kicker, Havens happens to be the founder’s/owner’s/brains behind the operation’s last name. Coincidence? I think not.
FOCUS, a local media/news/publishing print recently “focused” on ‘the haven.’ When I turned the page to see the lime green food truck that I love so much, my heart skipped a few beats. Not only did Havens share a few recipes that happen to be veggie friendly but there was also there was a whole feature on beans. Beans, specifically garbanzo beans (commonly known as chickpeas) happen to be my favorite food. Another coincidence?!
Here is a look below on my attempt at the haven‘s falafel. My falafel flipping clearly needs some work, but regardless, they were quite delicious. Probably not as delicious as Kellee’s, but I was sans a lime green food truck.
