During that time Dawa’s father, Ngodup, had started a lunch box business, catering to members of their community who worked in the city. Dawa and her father eventually decided to open their own place in the partnership with her uncle. They opened Dawa’s on April 16, 2016. They’ve since been featured in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Village Voice, Eaters, and Grubstreet, among others.
