Selling Colombian Food Out Of A Bedroom Window In Brooklyn


Through her project La TropiKitchen, Stephanie Bonnin makes handcrafted Colombian food and sells it from her apartment in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Before COVID-19, Stephanie hosted pop-ups and dinner parties, but since the start of the pandemic, she’s sold her arepas, enyucados, bollos, pasteles, and more directly from her bedroom window. Stephanie travels throughout Colombia to learn from local women about her country’s varying culinary histories, from the Andes to the Amazon to major cities, then she takes this knowledge back to New York.

    I love everything about her and her hustle…. I would eat her food without hesitation. So many restaurants are disgusting. If worked at a mcdonald's that had a rat in the ice cream machine for all 3 days I worked there. They also had roaches and a staff that was sickening. Baby this lady deserves her own restaurant. If I had money id send her whatever just to start her business
