No Cooking November 7, 2008

There are two things I always enjoy when I go on vacation.  One is not having to cook and the other is finding really good and different food to eat.  We had luck with both on our trip this week.

Our first night in Trinidad we found the East Peak Pub, check them out at www.eastpeakpub.com.  I’m glad we made the effort to eat there and it was an effort.  We had to take a detour around road construction to find them.  After we figured that out, they weren’t open for the evening yet.  But we waited and the food and people were worth it.

Their menu is a collection of food probably not found together anywhere else.  A little English, my husband had the fish and chips with jalapeno tarter sauce.  Some American, I passed on the Kobe burger because I was looking for adventure.  And a lot east India.  I decided on the mango and coconut curry, good choice.  It defiantly had a small town pub feel with some friendly people.

Our second night we were looking for pizza.  We had seen a couple of places earlier in the day on Main Street so we went forth to find pizza.  One place was not open that night.  The second had no customers.  Not a good sign when deciding where to eat, so we went for the third option.  It must of been fate that led us to Jo Jo’s Pizzeria.  The place was packed so we sat at the counter which meant we got to watch as the pizza’s were being made.  While we had been looking for pizza we both order calzones.  The pizza looked excellent and I’m sure it was good, but boy did I enjoy my calzone. 

Since we were sitting so close we got to talking with the wait staff and pizza makers.  Turns out one of the pizza guys was the owner Jo Jo and that was only their second night to be open.  If the crowd and the food are any indication they will be open for a long time to come.
