John searches for the best Caribbean food, but instead of going down south he follows his food compass north to Antoinette’s in the Yukon. A transplanted islander, Antoinette fuses Caribbean flavours with Canadian and French favourites like Halibut T&T [Trinidad & Tobago ] and a Spicy Caribbean Pork stew.
We entered an oasis of colour, soft lights, soothing music and subtle aromas of food being prepared. The original artwork, the bright cotton tablecloths and the shining cutlery all served to make us feel like honoured guests in a room specially set up just for us.
