B&D Trawling's latest pop-up kitchen seemed to have been the ultimate food spot last Friday as food lovers from uptown and down town came out in their numbers to get a taste of fresh, mouth-watering seafood.

While some patrons waited in line to purchase their food tickets, others enjoyed a cold coconut jelly from surrounding outlets, in full anticipation of their lunch.

From curry conch to shrimp pasta and fried fish, director of B & D, David Johnston shared with Food that the dishes of the day were perfectly 'Jamaicanised' to fit the taste buds of their consumers.

"Instead of using imported coconut cream, we use our local coconut to prepare our cream for the pastas, and we always strive to put a Jamaican twist on our dishes. We also know that having fresh food is a must, so we have our boats that carry in fresh fish," said Johnston.

With their pop-up kitchen being a popular hub for seafood dishes, and if the great turnout on Friday was any indication, it is clear that B & D is now convinced that the construction of their five-star restaurant is needed and will be well supported.

"We are absolutely overwhelmed by the turnout, and our customers are pushing us in the direction of the restaurant with their continuous commitment," added Johnston.

Though there was a long wait, patrons were delighted with their dishes.

"This is my first time here, and I'm glad that I came as the food was great, and the addition of the jelly is just splendid," a delighted Kemara Lewis told Food.

It was a day filled with many satisfied stomachs.
