I had a meeting in Port-of-Spain yesterday evening and then met up with a friend for dinner. We decided on Señor Jalapeños, located on Ariapita Avenue (Woodbrook, Port-of-Spain) as both of us had never visited before.
We parked on the Avenue, in front of the building and entered to be greeted with this fun sign, serving not only introduce the eatery, but also to give instructions about how to order.
To start, you choose what type of meal you desire. Then the meat you are wishing for, followed by the dressings or extras. My friend and I both were excited to have guacamole, being such Zaboca (Avocado) lovers, but unfortunately they were out that night. 😦
I decided on a Shrimp Quesadilla which came with a side of Rice and Beans and salad, while my friend chose a Chicken Burrito. Our meals each came with bottled water, but we decided to also try the soda that was available: Jackson Hole Soda, in flavours Grand Teton Grape and Outlaw Orange Cream.
Although there was a small area for seating inside, we decided on the outside option as it was a cool night, with minimal vehicular traffic on Avenue.
My Quesadilla was delicious but really would have been perfect with the side of Guacamole. The beans were good but I wasn’t a fan of the rice.
My friend’s Burrito was tasty overall but again, the rice for me was a low point… hmmm…
