Haitian Fast Food, Chien Janbe

Write a comment

Haiti's Street food is called "Chien Janbe" by fellow Haitians... What do Foreigners call it? do they eat it?

Read this...

Here in Haiti they have what we call street food, food that you order from a vendor on the street. They don't have fast food in terms of a McDonald's, but they do have street food. A friend of ours here jokingly said that street food is Haiti's version of fast food because you can pull up and place your order at a sidewalk vendor and get your food relatively fast.

Now, here is the deal. Street food is awesome. A little risky because you need to order from someone you know and trust, to make sure you won't get sick from their cleaning practices, but awesome! Let's just say that I refuse to eat McDonald's in the states but would eat Haitian street food in a minute.

Haitians deciding for country have the bad habit of saying Haitians deciding for country have the bad habit of saying "this is impossible" instead of "how can this be done?"

Many Haitians in high levels, or with BIG names, deciding for the country have the bad habit of saying "this is impossible" instead of "how can this be done?" It's been said that if you ask your brain a question it will find the answer for you. But, if you say "This is
