Featured Friends: Alyasha Owerka Moore

Prolific designer, artist, skateboarder, and friend to Rice or Death, Alyasha Owerka Moore, kindly welcomed us into his San Diego sanctuary to talk about his creative process, inspiration, and the importance of marching to the beat of your own drum.

True to himself and uncompromising in his beliefs, Alyasha abides by a strict no pork lifestyle, and while at first glance the Rice or Death menu appears to be devoid of a cleaner alternative, the rice can be substituted for cauliflower rice, the protein options can be replaced with tofu, and vegan options are available without egg. The truck takes the extra step to ensure there is no cross contamination, and uses specified vegan utensils and cookware. Aly chooses the "PMA" with cauliflower rice, tofu, and extra veggies.

Alyashas ongoing commitment to bridging cultural spaces, history, and authenticity to better clarify our understanding of the present are just a few of the reasons we are proud to call him a friend, and a staple in the San Diego creative community.
