|Nneka checking on her bread from the Authentic Dirt Oven|
Last night I attended the Launch of my friend Nneka Daniel Braveboy’s restaurant Nick & 2Js.
Got there early to see everything progress from last minute preparations to a full swing party….with multiple media houses present. Her religious leader was present to give the event his blessing and Errol Fabien was the MC. The Member of Parliament was even there to kick things off. The place was overflowing with love as her many loved ones and friends came out to show their support.

Among the many mouth-watering menu items, it was the lobster corn soup that captured my senses. The fish tacos, curry, doubles and cheese cake were equally scrumptious. The main attraction was the authentic dirt oven which Nneka helped to build from the ground up. Cooking since she was nine, this restaurant was her dream for about 12 years and yesterday all of her hard work paid off.
But don’t take my word for it, if you’re in Trinidad go on down to Nick & 2Js on the Corner Agostini Street and the Eastern Main Road, St. Joseph (opposite Wasa) and ask for her Lamb in Tamerind sauce, Overstuffed Chicken Breast and Honey Chilli King Crab with chive steamed buns!! You won’t be disappointed. She is also open for breakfast.
