Niky and Martha are a couple coming from Colombia and New England (respectively) eager to share their love of good Colombian street food with Portland.
Five years ago when Martha (who has Celiac) traveled down to Cartagena, Colombia, she discovered that the all-natural, corn-based diet did wonders for the way her body felt and the way she was able to digest food. Niky, who grew up in Cartagena, has always enjoyed feeding friends and family with simple, nutritious Colombian food, as there is nothing that shows love more than a fully belly.
Together, Martha and Niky are building "MAIZ" and bringing a modern twist to traditional corn-based meals. It has been a long-time dream of theirs to fuse local New England produce with Colombian cuisine, and they are so excited to have you all with them on this adventure.
