Notes from a small island
A weblog by Jonathan Ali

There are few joys to compare with those afforded by a good meal, enjoyed with great company. This evening found me at the Swan Chinese restaurant on Maraval Road in Port of Spain partaking of both. I cannot praise Swan's cuisine enough - chef/owner Kenny (I'll get his surname next time) is simply a genius, an artist, no less. Our menu consisted of shrimp, two types - one deep friend, Szechwan style, the other butterflied and done Japanese style; tofu and vegetables sizzling in a hot pot, jasmine rice and Singapore noodles. Chinese tea (complimentary) ended proceedings. I also had my first Carlsberg, the latest foreign lager to land on our shores, and found it wonderfully light and clear. A perfect complement to the meal.
