We are here as a result of Hurricane Katrina. With a very strong and rich New Orleanian culture Nureka has been serving wonderful meals since 1998 to various New Orleans residents and businesses. She was often called upon to cater food for many events throughout the Big Easy. She catered fro all types of events & parties.
Nureka's Taste of New Orleans was started in 2005 @ 630 West Little York in Houston, Texas.
We began catering events and delivering food to local businesses in the Humble Area.
Nureka recently took home a trophy for her "award winning GUMBO" after joining the annual cookoff sponsored by Atascocita High School here in Humble.
Nureka's Taste of New Orleans #1 Grand Opening was held August 6, 2010. On January 20, 2013 Nureka closed the doors at the Humble location located @ 802 1st St. #300-J. Although, the storefront closed the company will continue it's many other services such as: Daily Lunch Delivery to area Residents & Businesses,Event Catering, Personal Chef Services, Cooking Classes and much more!
The next adventure will be NuReka's Jazz Bar & Restaurant. Location TBA
We believe that
"when Life hands you Lemons you make the sweetest Lemonade" or in our case we use em to make our Signature Katrina Punch!
NuReka Chapman- Henderson continues to make strides in her community!
