"Sauces contain seeds, caution." Given the vibe inside this Trini storefront — during my initial visit, in late afternoon, a patient but determined knot of customers obscured any decent view of the steam table — I counted that handwritten warning as a plus, not a minus. The sign also added substance to a second, otherwise pedestrian notice, "all baking done on premises."
On a return visit at midday I found a seat, one of the few, tucked against a side wall, where I had elbow room enough to dig into a plate of curry goat atop rice and peas ($10). (I also had the incentive, given my itinerary, not to plow all the way through at one go. Plastic zip-seal bag, my backpack lining thanks you again.) In this particular batch of curry I didn't happen upon any seeds, though in all fairness I was occupied with nibbling around goat bones — in my book, also a plus.
