California: A new player has joined LA's diverse restaurants and food truck cultures. Kate Koyama and Eric Evans have opened the Auntie’s Fry Bread Gourmet Food Truck.
“Growing up in a community where fry bread is as common as hamburgers, I was surprised that a city as large and culturally diverse as Los Angeles did not offer fry bread,” Koyama said.
Koyama’s family has run Koyama Indian Tacos at Montana's Little Big Horn Days Festival for over 20 years. Their family recipe for fry bread and fry bread tacos are a big hit with the crowds.
Auntie’s Fry Bread combines those traditional frybread recipes with modern and unexpected ingredients -- a kind of "Native American Fusion."
When Koyama and Evans opened a booth at Farmer’s Markets throughout Los Angeles. The demand for their Native American fusion food quickly grew and was greater than the booth could handle. The two decided a food truck would be the best way to share their food and grow their business.
Auntie’s Fry Bread Food Truck was funded through Kickstarter, a web fundraising company. Kickstarter is an online community for artists, foodies, and other creative people to post a project or concepts that "backers" or donors might consider.
