Canboulay’s twist to Fish and Chips

Nestled in San Fernando,  Sutton Street; Canbuolay has grown to be one of the established weekend hangout spots in Southern Trinidad. The name Canboulay is from the French, Cannes Brulees, which means burnt cane and is the precursor to Trinidad and Tobago’s annual Carnival. The menu is very diverse and notably Caribbean. You can expect a traditional dish that takes on its own quality because of the unique caribbean infused flavours, which is such a pleasant surprise. Chef and owner, Damien Nandalal created a version of the old British classic – Fish and Chips. Being the experimental, genius that he is, he used our Banga Mary Fillets seasoned with a special blend of herbs and spices, dusted in flour and then perfectly deep-fried. Served with a unique blend of Curried Aioli Tar-Tar dressing, corn salsa and sweet potato fries.
