This North Miami food truck is more than just a place to grab a styrofoam box full of food to take home. Lakay has an astroturf patio where you can spend some time under an umbrella eating akra with visible chunks of peppers in each bite. The menu is as large as what you’d find at a brick-and-mortar restaurant where everyone in the kitchen moves at 65 miles per hour. But don’t let the smells of the smoker fool you, the best things here are fried. So prioritize dishes that spent time sizzling in oil like griot, fried goat, pate kòde, and those crispy akra.
