WATCH: Over 80 restaurants to be featured for TT Restaurant Week

Over 80 restaurants will be participating in the fifth annual Trinidad and Tobago Restaurant Week (TTRW), giving foodies everywhere an opportunity to indulge and celebrate the best of what local restaurants have to offer.

TTRW is expected to run across both islands from September 15-24. The 10-day food festival has seen significant growth in its short span, going from 19 participating restaurants in its first year to 80 and counting presently.

 

Speaking at the launch on Thursday, Shira Mohammed, who heads up the TTRW team, hinted that the annual event was a passion project of hers, having drawn inspiration from her Italian grandmother who secretly provided shelter and food for refugees during World War II.

“Restaurant Week is my way of paying homage to a brave woman; it embodies the beliefs of my ancestors and is something I would be more than proud to share with generations to come. To me, Restaurant Week represents more than just food, it represents a celebration of freedom and ingenuity of the human spirit.”

This year, the TTRW team has upped the ante to ensure that patrons get the most out of their food experience. The TTRW app has also been launched, allowing users to view the menus, locations, and offers of the participating restaurants. Users are also encouraged to get interactive by taking and sending photos of their meals through the app.

Scotiabank credit card holders will get even more bang for their buck;  they can receive up to 3% cash back when using any of their five credit cards at any of the participating restaurants.

Download the TTRW app for Android and iOS and follow Restaurant Week on Facebook for updates.
