Yesterday I went to BAYGO‘s Private Launch. A chance to get a first look at the new Caribbean take away spot and an opportunity try out their menu. It’s always exciting to see a new black owned business open up.
Before anything, I obviously had to take a picture of my meal. I’m surprised the pictures didn’t come out blurry considering how quick I took them. I knew I would enjoy it, from the smell alone.
I’m not great at describing texture, taste and all of that food critique terminology, however I will say that the first mouthful was an experience in it’s self. The rice and peas had a comforting and familiar taste, like my grandmother was in the kitchen.
I’m a big fan of fish, hence why I went with fish. I really appreciated the fact that the fish was fresh and the batter was the real deal. Fresh, flaky white fish with a really nice light batter. The fish sauce brought the whole meal up to a solid ten stars. I don’t know what was in that sauce, but it was heavenly. It was a spicy (spicy for me) tomato sauce full of flavour. I liked the contrast of textures; the soft fish, crunchy slaw and smooth sauce.
