I live in Manhattan and am very accommodating to my guests. Once I know where you’re staying, I do my best to find a Caribbean restaurant that will work with your location and schedule. Those who are staying in NYC often meet me by the Wall Street ferry at Pier 11 and head over to Brooklyn. Some who rather stay in the city meet me in the Village. For those who are specifically looking forward to tasing “Trinidadian Doubles” we go to Queens. Wherever we go, you will experience amazing authentic flavors from the few Caribbean (West Indian) spots in NYC. Depending on where you're staying and what you'd like to eat, I will pick the perfect spot. If you want, "Trinidadian Doubles", curry, stew, or jerk style foods, I will make sure you get it with your choice of rice or the many different roti's. There are also some vegan options. Guests will get to learn, see, and taste how the many cultures have influenced the food in the Caribbean. I will share some untold and purposely undocumented Indo-Caribbean history that will create an informational and unique cultural experience.
I’m born and raised in NYC with buried roots in the island of Trinidad. I didn’t know how the East Indians got to the Caribbean, as it’s not something that was taught in United States History. In 2010 I went to England for a conference, met some professors, got invited to Trinidad, and did a podcast series. I learned about the undocumented Indo-Caribbean History and got answers to every question I ever wanted to know about. When you sign up for my tour you will get to learn how the East Indian journey has significantly influenced the food, culture and music we see in the islands today. As an engineer with a love for NYC architecture not only will you learn some rare Indo-Caribbean history of Trinidad, you get some NYC architecture and engineering sprinkled in there making it one of the most unique food and history tour you’ll experience.
Meal up to ($15) Let me know if you are on a special diet, like Vegan or Gluten Free and I will adjust accordingly.
The experience involves one location where we will have a meal. If there are additional places that you’d like to learn about, I usually share with specifics. I will also let you know where you can get any unique spices that may interest you.
最多可有5位年满15周岁的参与者参加。家长也可携带2岁以下的儿童参加。 I have purposely made this tour for single people or couples, but will accommodate a single family large group. My goal is to have more one on one time with my guests.
I live in Manhattan and close to Brooklyn. I am willing to travel together depending on the number of booked guests.
