Q&A with Pia Harris, Owner
What’s the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
A West African woman [who] had our suya and West African black-eyed peas told me how she sends money with whoever goes back to Nigeria for suya because she misses it so much. She said she will never have to do that again and gave me a hug, saying, "Sister, you did it."
In your own words, how would you describe your menu?
Nia Soul is a real taste of African-American cuisine using fresh, authentic regional ingredients from the Caribbean, Africa, and South. [We] offer items like jerk chicken, tamarind ribs, and suya—West African barbecue.
