Trinidad and Tobago – D’ Boss Ah Soup

Trinidad and Tobago - D' Boss Ah Soup
Trinidad and Tobago – D’ Boss Ah Soup


In the Beautiful twin Isle of  Trinidad and Tobago, one is not limited to choosing any one particular cuisine. See, we are a multi-racial and multi-national country where no one cuisine is the right cuisine. However, there are some chosen favorites among the bunch. Since this article is mainly geared toward the best Restaurant in my area, I’ll cut my proud ramble short.
So let’s get into it.
Residing in the area of Woodbrook, (which is more toward the North-Western end of the Island), there are many restaurants boasting of the local and international cuisine. Spotted in between are even some Chinese and Syrian restaurants. Most are quite good, however today I want to focus on a dish Popular within Trini Cuisine; Corn Soup from my favorite spot, D’ Boss Ah Soup.
D’ Boss Ah Soup located on Tragarete Road, a short distance away from Cipriani Boulevard, this rustic little gem is placed.
Now many may not regard soup as proper food, more like an appetizer maybe, but not an actual dish. And that is very understandable, but my friend, the way we make soup in my country is quite different. When you’ve finished a bowl, you would feel like you had eaten a 4 course meal! Yes, they are that filling! And D’ Boss Ah Soup does an incredible job at not only portraying the depths of flavor we all know too well and love in all our dishes, but the seal their service off with a smile. For me, Customer service is everything!
When you first enter into the Soup Shop, you are greeted by an old time, traditional atmosphere and decor, mixed with the friendly conversations between customers and staff. The scent of all the soups under constant fire, cause your stomach to churn with anticipation for what is to come. Every time I go, I can’t help but order the same thing! Ever since this place was first recommended to me, I’ve always ordered a Large Beef soup with slight pepper, plenty ground provision and plenty dumplings. Not once have I ever been disappointed! This is by far their best dish! The beef is soft and tender, falling apart in your mouth with ease, the dumplings are each well flavored and perfectly shaped into bite sized cubes, the ground provision cooked to perfection; soft but still tough enough to hold up to a good chew and the split pea base of the soup, salted correctly, holds the perfect balance of thickness to fill you up, but loose enough to get that signature slurp! The pepper sauce added brings across a unique yet taste bud tantalizing flavor! So, if ever you’re in Trinidad and happen to be in the area of Woodbrook, Stop by D’ Boss Ah Soup! I promise you won’t regret it!

Kolkata – Peter Cat Restaurant

Peter Cat – A Legendary Restaurant in Kolkata, India

India is a vast country where people belonging to different social, cultural and religious identities live together as one. To the east of the country, lies the city of Kolkata, former capital, foremost cultural center and an absolute paradise for food lovers. The food scene in Kolkata is filled with unlimited varieties and boasts of a whole lot of restaurants that offer various types of cuisine ranging from the indigenous Bengali to modern European and Continental and almost every kind of cuisine in between.

Ask anyone in Kolkata about their favourite place to hang out in the city and chances are that most of them will answer, “Park Street.” This beautiful stretch of road runs between two important crossings of the city and is a prime food, entertainment and business zone for the people of the city. It is dotted with many popular restaurants known for the delicious food they serve. It is a very common scene to find people patiently waiting in long queues on weekends outside these restaurants on Park Street.

A legendary restaurant standing tall amidst all the eateries of Park Street is in operation since the 1960’s. Apparently named after a cat who made the Lord’s Cricket Ground, London his home in the 60’s, this family run eatery boasts of a wonderful ambiance and is beautifully decorated. The waiters are dressed in regal Rajasthani style attire and are known for being extremely courteous and attentive.

Although their menu card runs up to 9 pages and consists of many well-known Continental and North Indian delicacies as well as many varieties of Sizzlers, their signature dish remains their version of the Chelo Kebab, originally a dish from Iran. The fame of this dish at Peter Cat is such that food lovers visiting the city take time out to make a trip to the restaurant so that they can gorge on the Chelo – two succulent pieces of mutton kebabs marinated in Persian spice mix, served over a bed of buttered rice with a poached egg and char-grilled cubes of chicken and vegetables on the side.

Sterling – Cheng’s Restaurant

Sterling – Cheng’s Restaurant

Cheng’s is a family owned Chinese restaurant that has been running for the past thirty years. I have been there multiple times and my favorite dish of all time is the “Kung Pao Chicken”. It is wonderful as it includes chicken tenderly fried toss style in a spicy sweet savory brown tangy sauce with roasted tasteful organic peanuts and red spicy chili peppers.

It is located next to the Regal Movie Theatre in Sterling, Virginia 20146. It is located on the right corner of the shopping center, as it is disguised. Therefore, Cheng’s is located in the United States of America.

The food is really good there, as the ambiance is just perfect. There is a pond inside the family owned restaurant, which is just an amazing scenery as I enjoy the order of Kung Pao Chicken when I go there every time. What is amazing that they use authentic ingredients, fresh poultry, fresh seafood, and fresh beef. Every single time that I order they are consistent.

Cheng’s restaurant in Sterling, Virginia in United States of America is an amazing place to go with anyone. Another time I went with my uncle and my family, and I actually ordered crispy tender chicken drenched in garlic sauce. It was amazing. This is my family’s favorite restaurant without a doubt with it comes to Chinese Oriental food. When I order the Crispy Honey Shrimp, the shrimp is cooked perfectly. Many times they are rubbery and overcooked but that was not the case. Shrimps are always cooked to perfection. One time I ordered egg rolls for appetizer and while they so tasty. They had a schezuan spice that was included and with it was perfect with the eggroll, because there was just a hint of sweet balance to it with the cabbage in it.

I would come back here any day, service is always good, and not always crowded as they handle customers perfectly.

Koh Tao – Beach Club By Haadtien Restaurant

Capri - Aglio oglio
Koa Tao


In the small island Koh Tao that’s in Thailand in a beautiful hotel located in shark bay called “Beach club by haadtien” there’s the most romantic beautiful Italian restaurant right on the beach named ‘Capri’.
The place is designed so that even if all the tables are full you would still fell as if you’re there only with the person you came with.
All tables are facing the ocean so as well as a romantic mood you get to see the best view.
The restaurant specializes in pizzas of all kinds. They have a brick oven where they bake the pizzas right after you order.

We ordered the vegetarian pizza. It comes with onions, peppers, tomatoes and mushrooms all on a crispy crust with amazing tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella. Best pizza I ever had in Thailand! for a minute I actually thought I was in Italy.

The restaurant also has a large selection of pasta. We tried the ‘Aglio Oglio’. The sauce on this pasta is olive oil, garlic, chili flakes and of course graded parmigiana cheese.
This dish was incredible. The pasta was cooked perfectly and had so much flavor.

The service in ‘Capri’ is also worth mentioning, the staff was very nice and we got everything we wanted without waiting even though the restaurant was full.

I would go back to ‘Capri’ without a doubt!
For the romantic atmosphere, for the beautiful view, for the good service but most of all for the amazing food. It’s definitely worth traveling to Koh Tao for.

Buffalo – Frank & Teressa’s Anchor Bar

The United States is known for many great food dishes. Depending on what part of the country you’re in will determine what might be the top recommendation on the menu.

When you are in Buffalo, New York the favorite dish on the menu is chicken wings. If you are a local, then you just call them wings, but if you’re passing through you might call them Buffalo wings, hot wings or a combination of the two. And, if you’re local, you’ll know exactly where to get the best ones, really cheap almost every night of the week.

I highly recommend the Spicy Hot BBQ chicken wings from the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, NY which claims to be Home of the Original Chicken Wing’. While their original sauce is famous around the world, I really like the sweetness the BBQ sauce adds to the flavor, it also cuts a little bit of the heat. Ever wonder why wings are served with celery and carrots? They help cool your mouth from the spicy heat of the hot sauce, especially when dipped in blue cheese dressing!

There are plenty of ways to order your wings, I prefer mine cooked extra crispy, extra saucy. Cooking for the extra few minutes ensures the fat on the wing is crispy rather rubbery, and the meat generally falls off the bone this way. Extra saucy? Well, who wouldn’t want extra sauce?

In Buffalo its traditional for wings to come with blue cheese dressing on the side, however, you can order ranch dressing if blue cheese isn’t your style. They will know you’re not local, but better to order what you like than suffer through blue cheese if you hate it!

If it’s your first time I recommend ordering a mix of medium wings and BBQ wings to get started. If you can handle the heat, you can always ask your server to bring out the hot sauce to try, just remember to ask them for extra celery!
