As a rough rule of thumb, Trinidad and Glasgow are not easily confused.
Especially at this time of year.
Happily, today’s Big Deal on a meal for two at Fire in Babylon brings a little sunshine into the Scottish winter.
Authentic Caribbean cooking
Located on Hope Street, Fire in Babylon is a Caribbean street food kitchen in the heart of Glasgow.
The owner is a Glaswegian with Trinidadian roots and the food served in Fire in Babylon is gorgeously authentic and made to recipes which have been passed down through generations of friends and family.
From jerk chicken that melts off the bone to rich, deeply-flavoured curries, the food at Fire in Babylon is the real thing.
Valid Wednesday to Saturday, the offer is for two people to each have a main course and a soft drink.
Made from fresh, local ingredients, popular main courses on the menu include the Caribbean chicken curry with rice ‘n’ peas; the ital stew with roti and, of course, the jerk chicken and fish.
Naturally, there are plenty of hot sauces on hand at Fire in Babylon – just the thing to fight the cold on a wet and windy winter day.
The offer includes a soft drink for each diner. Fire in Babylon also operates a BYOB policy with a £2.50 per bottle corkage.
There is a supplement of £2 on goat dishes.
On the Fire in Babylon Facebook page, loads of customers have been quick to sing the kitchen’s praises:
‘Amazing, fresh, delicious and filling food! Perfect for lunch and dinner! I love it and I come here nearly every day for lunch! Keep up the excellent work!’
‘I’m sitting here with my wife eating some of the best food that either of us has eaten. The chef is great, home cooking professional style. And everything can be improved whilst listening to Bob Marley. If you don’t eat here you’re missing out!’
With vouchers valid until the 11th of February 2016, this Big Deal would make a tasty wee stocking filler.
Alternatively, you could just buy a handful and fend off winter’s frosty embrace with some Caribbean culinary heat.
