The Taste of Nawln's food truck made an appearance in Youngstown for Fat Tuesday.


YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The flavor of New Orleans was in Youngstown for Fat Tuesday.

A Taste of Nawln’s, the new Cajun-style food truck was on West Federal Street on Tuesday, serving up the 12 items on its menu. Owner Alan Franco says everything is made on location.

Although Mardi Gras festivities were underway, business was slow at 7:30 p.m. due to the weather.

“It’s just cold. This isn’t New Orleans weather,” Franco said. “People are just starting to know about us, and it has been good.”

The truck will have a Lent-inspired menu on Wednesday. Its locations will be available on the truck’s Facebook page.
