Salty, savory, spicy, succulent, savory, sweet. Pick your pleasure!

The cultural vibrancy of Trinidad extends to our culinary creations and offerings. While the measures taken to reduce the spread of COVID-19 have prompted some changes, many of our restaurants are still open for carry-out or delivery. Please see the list directly below to see the various options Trinidad still offers.

Here you can discover the rustic taste of a fire-brick oven pizza, the spiciness of a vibrant green hatch chili sauce over a Mexican dish, a delicate bowl of woven pasta with a signature sauce, or an artisan sandwich with a spread of local chutney. Whichever you choose, we hope you enjoy it and thanks for your visit.
