Entrepreneurs introducing Asian and Haitian flavors to Bainbridge residents

Two passionate business owners, Ritho Jean Louis and Christine Vancamp, are bringing a taste of Asia and Haiti to the small town of Bainbridge. Both entrepreneurs are driven by the desire to share their cultural heritage through food and provide a unique dining experience for the community.

For Ritho Jean Louis, his journey to Bainbridge was influenced by the harvest seasons in Haiti and the lack of traditional Haitian cuisine in the area. Growing up cooking for his sisters, he brings a unique blend of flavors to the area with dishes like rice and peas, stews, and grilled meats. In order to bring a taste of home to those who may be missing it, Louis plans on hosting a corn festival alongside other members of the Haitian and Latino community.

Christine Vancamp, on the other hand, is inspired by her Korean grandparents and upbringing in Hawaii. She offers dishes like shoyu chicken, kalbi, and lumpia at her restaurant at the Bainbridge Marina. Vancamp’s Asian Fusion cuisine has become popular among locals looking for something new and authentic.

Both entrepreneurs are dedicated to bringing diversity and international flair to Bainbridge through their unique offerings. By introducing residents to new flavors and comfort food that they may not have experienced before, they hope to expand palates and bring joy to those who dine with them.
