Weary after a busy Carnival Monday, we finally popped into KAVA for dinner to see what the pizza buzz is all about.
KAVA’s pizza menu offers 18 thin crust pizzas fired by a combination gas and wood burning oven. Exciting pizza toppings abound here from the signature KAVA (goat cheese, caramelized onions, toasted walnuts or capers) to the Pizza de Scampi with spicy cajun shrimp & pineapple.
We sampled the Prosciutto, the Strong Man (spinach, feta and mozzarella cheese) and a vegetarian pizza minus the cheese. The pies were tasty although several slices were a little charred. Wood-fired char aside, our Strong Man pizza was redeemed by the healthy topping of fresh spinach, which is always a plus. Another tick in KAVA’s favour is that whole-wheat pizzas are occasionally available although we forgot to inquire about them on this visit.
The service at KAVA was friendly and efficient despite the restaurant being packed with Carnival revelers (weirdly) in full costume/bikini along with KES the Band and entourage. We particularly appreciated that our friend’s vegan requests were accommodated without a hint of the “we can’t do that attitude” so common in many of Trinidad’s restaurants.
KAVA also features a full menu of salads, starters, burgers, steaks, pastas, etc. and free wi-fi!
