Trinidadian Fallon Seymour is serving up Trini and Caribbean flavours at Pearl’s Caribbean, a colourful, cozy restaurant located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Here, you’re sure to get all of the foods you’re accustomed to back home in the Caribbean like bake and shark, crab and dumplin’, shrimp roti and jerk chicken.

The authentic Caribbean restaurant has been cast into the spotlight after being recently featured on a food segment, Food Adventure, which aired on American cable news television channel NY1.

Seymour named the restaurant after her grandmother, Pearl, whom she fondly referred to as “Pearlie”. Unsurprisingly, she credits her grandmother for her love of cooking.

The Trinidadian restaurant owner said she ensures that visitors to her restaurant are given the full Trini-Caribbean experience.

“I really wanted the customer to feel like they were transported… I tried to put Trini flags everywhere and Trini sayings, and always try to represent.”

Her customer favourite, crab and dumplin’ is made with only the best ingredients.

“It’s a lot of curry. Chief curry from Trinidad, pimento, garlic, coconut milk, chadon beni, of course. Trinis put chadon beni on everything.”

“When you come and eat crab and dumpling, you feel like a true Trini,” she chuckled.  

Host Lawrence Weibman was treated to a spicy delight of crisp golden bake and pepper shrimp – a special recipe passed down by Seymour’s father. A red-faced Weibman gave the spicy dish a thumbs up.

“Trinidadian cuisine, right here at Pearl’s Caribbean in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Fallon will take good care of you, but be careful! She may look nice but her food has some serious spice.”
