Fine food does not have to come from a fancy restaurant to feel special and The Taste Corner located at Morne Fortune, Castries has proven this time and time again.

Although just two months in the game, the small home restaurant has been serving some out of this world delicious and unique dishes that not only satisfies your palate but your entire soul.

Their famous baked chicken in creamy mushroom sauce is perfection! The tender chicken is smothered in the creamiest mushroom sauce which is loaded with flavor and melts in your mouth with every bite.

This amazing food spot was founded by Tazia Louisy, a food lover who is passionate about cooking. She started the Taste Corner to compensate for the lack of finding good, well-balanced meals in Castries as most of the restaurants there served fast foods and literally everywhere continuously sold the same boring food.

Tazia and her team combined their insatiable tastes for fancy food with a local twist to create exclusive meals that are hearty and delectable. The menu is packed with succulent dishes such as potato medley, baked wings glazed in tamarind BBQ sauce, grilled pork in souskai, breadfruit balls, grilled fish in curried coconut milk, a variety of mouthwatering pies, and of course boullions. The menu changes daily so customers get to savor something different.

The Taste Corner will not only leave your tastebuds happy, but the food is quite affordable. Meals range from $16 to $20 and delivery is available from Monday to Friday as far as Gros-Islet. Ordering hours are from 10 am to 11 am. With the current COVID restrictions, only delivery is available.

“My advice to any aspiring entrepreneur is to start. Start with whichever tools that you may have at your disposal because there's no such thing as the right time. Believe in yourself. Accept whichever criticism that comes because that is exactly what will force you to improve on your business.”

Tazia wants to expand her business in the future and her vision is for The Taste Corner to become well known.

“I want to expand, be international, be well-known, be loved. I want people to enjoy and when they hear the name ‘The Taste Corner’ they get excited to eat there.”
