The owner of a popular food truck is bringing his Nigerian cuisine to a brick-and-mortar, sit-down restaurant in Detroit in Midtown near Woodward and Willis. 

Owner and chef Prej Iroegbu says he’s working now on getting furniture imported from Nigeria and other materials for the new restaurant, which he says “will be all about the experience.” He said he’ll likely open this fall.
