Communal Table 2023: Trini Liming

The Bentway and The Depanneur are teaming up again to bring you a fabulous lineup of diverse and delicious dinners. Trinidadian cultural ambassador Rhoma Spencer shares the convivial spirit of an island lime — hanging out, drinking, joking and eating together with friends — with this lovely meal of Caribbean favourites.

Trinidad and Tobago’s culinary heritage is inspired by the many cultures that make up this twin isle republic; Trin­bag­on­ian foods are a mashup of Indigenous, African, Indian, Chinese, Portuguese and Mediterranean cultures.

“We often say that we eat out of each other’s pot, meaning that a lot of the food that we eat comes from different cultures.”

—Rhoma Spencer

Family-style dining in a unique urban setting. Communal Tables are seated, family-style meals, served and shared at 10 tables of 6, where you bring your own plates and cutlery.
