Veni Mange

Woodbrook, Trinidad | (868) 624-4597

Veni Mange

Veni Mange is located within Woodbrook, toward the center of Port of Spain. Because this is an informal place to dine, it's convenient, plus great for quicker, quality meals. <p>As a Cordon Bleu-trained chef, Allyson Hennessy outlined a creative Creole menu with an unusually scrumptious vegetarian choice of banquet. The authentic dish, callaloo soup, curried crab, oxtail and dumpling stew, West Indian hot pot with a variety of meat cooked in Creole style and vegetable lentil loaf with fruit punch form the main course. To top it with something sweet, pineapple upside-down cake is also prepared to make it a complete meal.</p>
