Update – TriniChow visited in November 2011 and although we were underwhelmed by the restaurant’s decor, the food and friendly service made up for it. Our favourite dish was the Stir Fry King House Special, meat/seafood stir fried with vegetables and almond, which delivered several layers of texture – crunchy nuts, crispy vegetables and tender meat in a flavourful sauce.

Trinidad & Tobago Newsday said “to prove that “stir fry” certainly does not mean overcooked and saturated in oil, in the[Stir Fry King's] first dish of cashews and vegetables with small pieces of meat, the veggies were very crunchy and not overcooked.”
“Live lobsters dropped in hot oil for two minutes were succulent and fresh mussels from New Zealand were barely stirred in very hot oil. Char sui pork, roast pork, sweet and sour fish, shrimp in batter, dasheen pork, Singapore noodles, wantons, spring rolls, pork fried rice, were just some of the food served at the opening.”
