The restaurant has always prided itself on a blend of Grenadian cuisine ‘ Conch Fritters, Callaloo Stuffed Chicken with creamy Nutmeg Sauce, Ginger Coconut Lobster, Guava Tart, Nutmeg Cheesecake ‘ and Mexican flavours courtesy of owner Magdalena’s culinary creativity. Think quesadillas, fajitas and nachos and, best of all, her Kahlua Frozen Cream Cake.
More recently, British-born Chef Gary Birkett has joined the team bringing with him international experience and a willingness to introduce fresh local produce to established favourites. Look out for Callaloo & Cheddar Cheese Soufflé, Sweet Potato and Goats Cheese Croquettes, Fish & Bakes and to satisfy the sweet tooth a delicious Passion Fruit Tart.
Cooking classes with True Blue’s Grenadian cooks, Omega & Esther, are full of repartee. With a broad smile and lilting accent Omega tells it like it is while Esther gently demonstrates how to peel a plantain, dip in breadcrumbs and fry! Omega and Esther’s class is not just about cooking, they will also share ingenious tips on how to choose a paw paw (papaya) and put it in a brown paper bag to ripen; how to rub a green sapodilla with coconut fibre to bring out the flavor. Omega also presides over True Blue’s made to order, a la carte breakfast ‘ be sure to try the Grenada Plantation Breakfast of Salt fish, Plantain and Coconut Bakes ‘where guests can choose from an English, Grenadian or Mexican Breakfast!
