Honduran-Inspired Food Truck In Austin: Lahleenea

Studio 512

Looking for authentic Honduran food in Austin? The Lahleenea Food Truck takes food from the streets of Honduras and brings it to Austin. Owner Alejandra Chi-Ham came to Studio 512 to make us her Ginger Lime Jamaica Drink. First, she makes the “Jamaica” — or Hibiscus — concentrate. She boils water with hibiscus flower and ginger for about 15 minutes. Once the concentrate is ready, she mixes it with water and sugar to taste.

Her restaurant is named Lahleenea or La Linea, meaning “the line” in Spanish, and it traces back to a specific plain in the town of La Ceiba located in the Northern Coast of Honduras. Honduran food isn’t afraid of spice — you can see that from the number of dishes with habañero on their menu!

Along with being delicious, Lahleenea also is benefitting our community. They use locally-sourced food and have 100% compostable packaging.

Make sure you check out their location on 2207 E Cesar Chavez Street, or visit their website at www.lahleenea.com.
