[VIDEO] Meet Fauzia Abdur-Rahman, The Jerk Chicken Queen of The Bronx

Fauzia’s Heavenly Delights is a Jamaican food street cart that has been parked on the corner of 161st Street and Concourse Village West in The Bronx for the past 24 years. Run by Fauzia Abdur-Rahman—the "Jerk Chicken Queen of The Bronx"—and her family, the popular street cart is one of the best in the City. Learn more about the chef and her cart in this profile video from our friends at Munchies.

Fauzia Abdur-Rahman has been serving Jamaican food in the South Bronx from her cart Fauzia's Heavenly Delights, right outside the courthouse, for the last 25 years. The menu changes every day, but there are always two meat options, a fish option and three vegetarian options. With the help of her daughter and husband, Fauzia makes her famous jerk chicken three times a week, and finishes it with her homemade jerk sauce that she makes with pimiento and scotch bonnet peppers, plus a host of other ingredients.
