Not happy with the "feel" or vibe of the newer layout. It could be a function of resisting change. however the "cozeyness" and "homely" feel to the experience feels more commercialized now. The food quality is still up to standard.

So my first time in Trinidad, our tour guide Zairee took us here while at Maracas Beach. The lines were long, which is a good sign. I was reluctant to try, but it was really good. Lines move quickly and the food was tasty!
