Tanis Tamar, 47, had a craving for Haitian-made fish — red snapper — as he was driving with his fiancee in the summer of 2019 in Florida. The couple called a Haitian restaurant at least 10 times to ask if they had fish but they never answered.

When they reached the restaurant, it was swamped. After waiting on line, the couple was told that the kitchen was out of fish.

Tamar called another Haitian restaurant, this one picked up and they had fish. But after driving there for about 45 minutes, they had already given the last fish to someone else.

Tamar had fish from an American restaurant that night.

“I was really mad,” he said to The Haitian Times. “Why couldn’t we find a better way to fix this nowadays?”
