Crab and dumplings, crab and dumplings. Jerry, when you gonna see the baby! Everyone in Trinidad and Tobago hyped up crab and dumplings which is specially made in Tobago in Crown Point. So I took a taxi from one side of the island to another to sample this famous local dish at Ms. Jeans.
It was $3.50 for a bowl of crab, dumplings, and curry stew. It ended up costing me plenty more when it was done.
First, they don’t provide you with adequate napkins. What’s one napkin going to do when you have to eat crab by hand? Next, they don’t provide you with tools to break open the crabs. What am I supposed to do, use my pinkie nail to prod out the crab meat? I resorted to brute strength. I grabbed the leg and squeezed with all my might.
Wiping the curry from my brow, I realized I made a big mistake. A half hour later, I did as much damage as possible and gave up. I settled for fried shrimp and fries and a pina colada on the beach for dessert.
