The food of Trinidad is unique in that it combines Caribbean and African favorites with Indian and French influences. The result is a cuisine that features curry and spices that distinguish Trinidad. Handmade Roti and Doubles in particular are extremely popular examples of dishes that are unavailable elsewhere.
As a young boy in Trinidad, Darryl Hicks was blessed to be immersed in the wondrous tropical flavors of the island, and the cooking of his mother Claudia.
As an adult in Chicago, Darryl noticed that there were NO restaurants serving Trinidadian food in the area. With a craving to enjoy and a passion to share , Darryl and Claudia opened the first Cafe Trinidad in 2005 on 75th St.
