At the heart of Chicago's Haitian community lies Kizin Creole, a restaurant that offers locals much more Haitian culture than the kind that comes on a plate. In addition to serving the sun-kissed foods of the Caribbean, the spot also serves as a community center, promoting Haitian art, language, and music to anyone interested in taking part. Diners at the restaurant get to share in that cultural experience with every bite, whether they order plantains or a flaky pastry pâté stuffed with chicken, beef, cod, or sauteed vegetables. On the weekend, the chefs cook up more complex dishes, such as konsonmen—a traditional Haitian soup made with local vegetables—or the mildly spicy pumpkin soup special, guaranteed not to turn back into a pumpkin at midnight.
