We had the good fortune of connecting with Christian Torres and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Christian, where are your from? We’d love to hear about how your background has played a role in who you are today?
I was born in Miami, Florida but my background is Colombian. My mom traveled through Mexico to make it here to Miami as a child with her sister and their mother. My father moved to Miami in his late 20s and started working as a valet attendant in Bayside marketplace. I am very prideful of having a hispanic background and use this pride to search through my history. Forgotten foods are very attractive to me and my goal is to bring them into light.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
We are a food trailer located in West Kendall aka the end of the world. SUNDAY focuses on plant-based and vegetarian food & also specialty coffee. I have spent almost 10 years in the restaurant industry and am finally working for myself for over a year now. The road was not easy but definitely necessary. I find reflections of where I have worked in my own work ethic and do not regret anything. We currently have a pop-up coffee shop inside a brewery in South Miami called Unseen Creatures. Breakfast and early lunch is available as well as great socially distant warehouse space to ‘work from home’.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Eat: Itamae for sushi and ceviches B&M Market for Jamaican Jaguar Sun for drinks & sides Coconut Grove to walk around and walk beside the ocean Walk around the Deering Estate neighborhood
