Trini oriented food. Do you know the cultural differences between a Trini and a Puerto Rican or Jamaican? Do you think they are all the same?
They dont do BussUpShut or Chow in Jamaica.

Claytons was a Caribbean place that had more Jamacian and Spanish type foods. You can get that in Rochester.

I don't know if thats true or not but it still wasn't a Trinidad food restaurant. It was a Caribbean restaurant that had more Jamacian and Spanish type foods. You may have been able to get roti there but there have been places like that in Rochester too.

He started out serving Trini food and changed to suit the local clients.
Trini Roti and JA roti is not the same. JA spots dont serve BussUpShut or Chow.

No one said that they are all the same and I understand the cultural differences between the Caribbean nations. I suspect that Trini restaurants would have more South Asian and some Chinese influence. That's not really that much different from Jamaica, except for the volume in terms of influence those cultures have in Trinidad. There is some Arab influence in both too.

And for how long did he supposedly serve just Trinidad food?

I've never tried Trini cuisine but now I'm considering it. Thanks for sharing!

Honestly, the only complaint I have about Rochester is the 2:00 AM last call. I think it's puritanical and arbitrary.

Not too sure how having a Trini restaurant would really improve Rochester. Of all the problems in Rochester, food is the last thing I'm concerned about. The food here is perfect and the reason we dont have a Trini restaurant is because if we did no one would eat there.

With a minuscule Trini population in Rochester, who would start and run the restaurant? Would you like me, a kid from New Jersey, to open it? I'm not sure how authentic that would be. Maybe if you spent some of the time you spend here actually doing something productive (here's an idea - how about opening a Trini restaurant?) you could lead a constructive, fulfilling, happy life. Complaining is not healthy. Do something to better your situation. Don't wait for someone else to do it for you.
