Lunch at Chaud


Spontaneity sometimes results in brilliant experiences, such as it did this week when my sister, brother and I decided to have lunch at Chaud. Chaud (as most of us already know) is a fine dining restaurant located on the corner of Dundonald Street and Queen's Park West. Khalid Mohammed has indeed made a name for himself in Trinidad and Tobago, and other parts of the world. He is often well received and with good reason. Dining at Chaud (and Chaud Cafe) is always a grand experience, and I will definitely be returning again and again. I am yet to try Chaud Creole, but rest assured, I will be there soon.
For lunch, along with their a la carte menu, they also have a prix fixe menu with numerous selections, and quite affordable. My brother, sister and I each had something different, all of which were incredible.
