Delicious restaurant on Main Street serves Haitian cuisine

BROCKTON — In Haitian culture, food brings people together.

Showing your kids the unique recipes passed down from generation to generation is a form of bonding.

Roody Musac, the owner of Delicious restaurant, learned from his mother and turned these recipes into a thriving business.

The Delicious Restaurant, located at 1753 Main St. in Brockton, opened in 2017 to share its simple traditions with Brockton, Musac said.

“Haitian cuisine is not an easy food to cook and it takes a lot of time. In our culture, we always say that the hands make the food. We take great pride in what we do and the consistency of the recipes. Every day the food will taste the same. It’s important for us to be consistent,” Musac said.

Musac and his wife, Junette Musac, planned to open a juice bar and noticed that the license they had obtained would also allow them to open a restaurant.

“We’ve always loved to cook, so we thought why not open a restaurant instead,” Roody said.

The owners of the Delicious restaurant in Brockton are Roody Musac and his wife Junette Musac, outside their place on Wednesday August 31, 2022.

The Delicious restaurant menu features classic Haitian dishes, including breakfast.

Customers can enjoy boiled plantains with eggs, pâté kode (a stuffed puff pastry), bouyon (a vegetable and meat soup), and Haitian spaghetti for a morning pick-me-up.

For lunch and dinner, the restaurant offers a selection of meats ranging from goat, chicken, beef, pork and turkey.

You can get these meats fried or cooked in sauce.

Popular dishes include rice and beans served with a legume (stewed vegetables and meat), macaroni gratin (a Haitian version of mac and cheese), Russian salad (a potato salad with beets), mayi (cornmeal with spinach and cod), and the plate of conch shrimp served with rice, plantains and salad.

All plates can be mixed and matched with the rice, beans, vegetables and meat of your choice.

Everything is made fresh daily, even the squeezed lemon and passion fruit juices.

When Roody came to America in 2007, he held various jobs to support his family.

From working as a dishwasher in a bakery to a CNA in a nursing home, then working in security and getting a commercial driver’s license, Roody has done it all.

Her motivation to work and find new ways to support herself comes from her childhood in Haiti.

The culture in Haiti is to work hard and provide for your family, Roody said.

Once Roody felt the restaurant was in a good financial position, he quit his job as a Boston Public Schools bus driver to work at the restaurant full-time.

The end goal of the restaurant is to educate the community about its culture and open several delicious restaurants on the east coast.

“This place adds a home away from home. It brings together the Brockton community, especially people from different cultures. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for the restaurant,” said Erlynn St. Cyr, Marketing Director of Delicious Restaurant.
