Named by Huffington Post as one of the best restaurants in the Caribbean, Trinidad’s VERANDAH RESTAURANT lives up to the moniker with its well executed lunch and dinner menus.
This elegant restaurant is located in busy St. Clair, but upon entering, it feels a world apart from the neighborhood’s hustle and bustle.
We love to lunch at VERANDAH and on our most recent visit in September 2012, we had the Shrimp Sauteed in Cajun Butter with sides of spinach flavoured basmati rice, plantains, carrots and broccoli and the Pork Tenderloin with a Mustard & Cream Sauce with sides of breadfruit oildown, plantains, carrots and broccoli.
Verandah’s dinner menu offers choices like Cold Grilled Cajun Shrimp Cocktail; Grilled Bacon Wrapped Tenderloin of Pork & Apples on a skewer w/warm apple brandy cream; Crumb Crusted Breast of Chicken stuffed w/Spinach & Cream Cheese drizzled w/melted Garlic Butter; and desserts like the Pecan Tart w/a scoop of homemade ice cream.
