Featuring: Jamisa Chef 1/2 The Honeys
Greetings! Back with a new blog. I had the pleasure of meeting up with a long time social media friend Jamisa (Instagram: @jamisaaa) at The Honeys (Instagram: @thehoneyscocina) in Baltimore, MD. Me and Jamisa have been friends for 9 years on social media started with twitter and crossed over to Instagram. We have both watched each other grow creatively. Jamisa is an artist, director, photographer and chef. As of last year Jamisa and LUVA (Instagram: miss_luva) an artist/songwriter and chef started The Honeys. The first event was held in September 2016.
Since then it has grown and people look forward to their hospitality, good vibes and delicious food.
I made my way to Baltimore (it wasn't a long trip) to experience The Honeys event. It was held at The Sand Gallery (Instagram: @thesandgallery) an amazing space with great art and an amazing staff of young black creatives. Jamisa introduced me to the Co-founder/Owner Milly (instagram: @millyvanderwood). I was also given a tour and enjoyed everything about the The Sand Gallery. I also had to get my eat on. I went with the pineapple chipotle chicken taco and it was amazing (I was tempted to buy the rest of the tacos but that wouldn’t be fair to others). Both of these ladies are making moves and inspiring the community with their talents. No doubt they will continue to grow in their endeavors. Read on to learn more about The Honeys.
What is the idea behind The Honeys?
“The idea behind The Honey's is a sisterhood between two women that cook, spread great vibes and just want to see people happy. How it came about, it sounds really cool to say who did you get this platter from? "The Honey's" lol.”
What has been the most rewarding thing so far?
“The most rewarding thing so far is everyone who come across our food saying it's delicious and refreshing. The best thing while doing this so far is people saying "Oh my God these are the best tacos I ever had" I absolutely love when people say that. To me that just means we're pouring out nothing but love in every dish.”
Is there a popular menu item?
“The first thing to go on our menu whenever we cater or throw an event would have to be our Honey Jerk Shrimp Tacos. After we did the commercial for it, it increased the tease to another level. That's one of my favorite commercials we did, it has 1/2 of the Honey's Chef LUVA (@miss_luva) music behind the creating of the shrimp so it fit so perfectly. She has a nice sultry voice so when we dropped that commercial people were saying "I never looked at shrimp as sexy until now" that always crack me up.”
Any exciting new menu items we can look forward to?
“We're creating more unique vegan options. Can't wait for those, eating clean is awesome for the mind, body and soul.”
Any last comments you want to share with our readers?
“Whatever you want to do in life just do it, no matter who don't support you in the beginning whoever suppose to be there will be there. More on us IG @theHoneysCocina / TheHoneysCocina.com.”
Until next time stay happy, stay blessed.
