Words: Shamim de Brún
After an extended hiatus, the much-loved AA Caribbean is back on Deliveroo to much excitement and relief.
For flavour seekers, AA’s Caribbean has been one of Dublin’s most sought-after pop-up food experiences. Eamon de Freitas grew up in Trinidad before moving to Toronto and Ireland. When the pandemic hit, he pivoted from tech to cooking and selling food from the window of his home in the Liberties, Dublin 8.
Dublin fell hard for his Caribbean cuisine, which he says will “kick you in your face with flavours”. The apt name AA’s fortuitously sounds like the Trinidadian ‘ay ay’, an expression of surprise or excitement.
Recently AA’s have found themselves with a solid in-house residency at Bow Lane. Their menu extended to include rum cocktails and a whole host of new bits and bobs, all of which are now also available for Delivery.
Delivery has been MIA since The Chestnut Bazaar was forced to close by DCC rules and regulations. The delivery is available to anyone in the Dublin 2/ Dublin 8 catchment area.
