The festive ambience that characterizes Tap Tap starts outside, where a colorful, painted bus usually sits welcoming you to the restaurant. Inside the restaurant, everything serves as a canvas. From the bright blue floors decorated with yellow motifs, to walls that depict bright, colorful scenes of Haitian life.
Wooden tables, some blank, some painted are paired with mismatched
chairs that have been painted with anything from a zebra pattern to
colorful dots. No corner of the restaurant has been left untouched.
Don't expect fancy here, expect character and beautiful art.
