American cuisine with an Afghan touch
Emily Park, Program Manager for Spice Kitchen, and Chef Hayat Stoman, Owner of Hayat’s Grill, joined us today to kick off our Food Truck Frenzy taking place this week!
Today’s food truck is Wings on Wheels, offering American food with an Afghan twist. They offer delicious wings served with homemade sauces that will delight your taste buds. Chef Hayat recommends trying the buffalo flavor to start, as it’s a classic flavor with a bit of a kick. For the kids, he recommends trying the garlic parmesan.
Hayat moved to Utah in June 2011 from Afghanistan and learned to cook with his mother-in-law and wife. The lack of Afghan restaurants in Salt Lake City prompted him to pursue his own food business.
Hayat has worked for many years in the food industry, starting in a food cart and now developing his second food truck business. He likes to look for new opportunities, which is what brought him to a wing food truck.
When asked why he started his first business, Hayat’s Grill, he said “to share my culture with others in hopes of erasing the hatred that has taken hold of so many hearts and filling the gaps over a cup of tea”.
