Marla's Caribbean Cuisine
Marla Jadoonanan was born in Princes Town, Trinidad and Tobago. She grew up being the youngest of 7 siblings and came to Nordeast Minneapolis when she was 15. Marla lost both her parents at young age, but before her father passed he made sure that his girls knew how to cook. On Sundays Joe Flat (Marla’s Father) would take Marla down to the village where she would cook with the older ladies. This is where her passion for cooking began. If you ask her, she doesn’t have any recipes, just a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Of course, her main ingredient is always lots of love!
The cuisine is based out of Trinidad and Tobago, but has a deep Indian influence. The island of Trinidad and Tobago is a huge melting pot of every culture you can think of and when the flavors combine it’s like heaven. You will have to come and taste for yourself. Marla’s is a small, casual, down-to-earth restaurant. They use the freshest ingredients and make everything to order, so come in, relax, and eat your belly full.
