Touched by a Culinary Angel

East Austin, Texas is the proud home of the Nubian Queen Lola’s Cajun Soul Food. The charming purple restaurant, unforgettably covered in alligators, is the brainchild of Lozina “Lo-La” Stephens. According to Stephens, after having a series of God-influenced dreams depicting the minute and major details of her eatery, she created the Nubian Queen.

An experienced cook, Lola learned the ropes of food preparation while “…sitting on a rice sack…” in her mother’s kitchen. The culinary diva expresses her love of cooking by working in the kitchen with love, Jesus, and olive oil. “Cooking,” she declares, “is the best way to a person’s heart.”

There are no guests, patrons, or customers at the Nubian Queen. Stephens affectionately refers to her clients as angels. These angels help the Nubian Queen stay open and fulfill Lozina’s God-appointed duty of aiding the homeless.

Every Sunday “The Queen” is closed. Although the doors are closed to paying angels, the restaurant welcomes the homeless in every Sunday for a meal. In the backyard of “The Nubian Queen,” Lola distributes her culinary blessings to the less fortunate.

 

With tasty menu items ranging from crawfish etouffe to burgers and fries, Nubian Queen Lola’s Cajun Soul Food will continue to be a blessing to all of Stephen’s angels-paying or not.
