On a busy street in metropolitan Houston, Texas lies Chef Randy Evans’s culinary escape from the big city. Dedicated to rural sensibilities and nature, Haven is a unique Houston restaurant that offers a variety of organic food with inspiration from the city’s many multicultural communities. A large garden cultivated on the property provides the ingredients for several dishes.

But Haven is perhaps best known for its heaping pile of thick-cut wild boar drenched in minced onions, tomatoes, and Creole seasonings. Haven’s wild boar chili remains one of the establishment’s most popular dishes since it opened in 2009. Although the chili has simple roots, many wondered exactly what went into making the meal.

Chef Evans is glad to share to recipe with Good Taste with Tanji in the video below:
