Hyatt Food

February 15, 2019

Hey food truck nation!

We all know the real meaning of life is food, obviously. And, what’s better than a food truck that is making tasty food to allow their loyal customers the chance to feel the “good life” or “buena vida” while they eat? Got your attention yet? Well, Michael Luis is the proud owner of Hyatt Food and he and his team are serving up some seriously delicious Mediterranean food all over the South Florida area. Hyatt Food describes themselves as “authentic homemade Mediterranean – Middle East cuisine”.

Hyatt Food recently opened their food truck to the public just a little over three months ago and from what we can see; their family-owned business has been quite the success. He learned everything he knows about cooking mostly from his parents and their family recipes. His father and partner is from Syria and his mother is part Syrian and Lebanese; they both immigrated to Venezuela and had Michael. Michael is proud to serve dishes created from old family recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. And, being from Venezuela, he’s been able to add his own Latin flair to the authentic Mediterranean foods he makes day in and day out. We asked Michael, “What makes Mediterranean food so special?” Without hesitation, he started to explain the many benefits to eating these foods with the most important being – it is a very healthy type of food. At Hyatt Food, they only use fresh ingredients and exotic spices to create their signature dishes. All of their foods are homemade and made daily to maintain ultimate freshness.

So, what are the top menu items for people to try? We got you covered! Michael said their best sellers are the garbanzo crema, grilled skewers and the falafels, but check out their menu for loads of more goodies. The garbanzo crema is similar to humus. They blend garbanzo beans into a paste, drizzle olive oil over and top it with a spice blend. This tasty crema is usually served with warm pita bread for dipping. Customers have their choice of chicken, beef or kafta when choosing their grilled skewers. So, we had to know, what exactly is kafta… It is seasoned ground beef that Michael prepares himself daily. He then molds it around the wooden skewers and grills them to perfection. Trust us, this is a must try in our book! Finally, they have their own traditional falafels. These deep fried balls of garbanzo goodness leave every customer running back for more. Their usually served with the garbanzo crema and a refreshing tabbouleh salad.

Hyatt Food is bringing authentic Mediterranean cuisine to South Florida; something we do not see too much of around here. However, it is important for us to try new foods to expand our foodie palettes. It would be a shame to not try a recipe that has been passed down through generations without any modifications. Michael plans to expand and open several other food trucks in different South Florida communities so authentic Mediterranean food will be at our fingertips no matter where we are! We want to thank Michael for taking the time to sit with us, share his inspiring story and let us into his food truck for this delicious takeover.

Until next time,

Kellee O.
