Hello, I'm Emma-Louise and I setup 63 Islands in April 2014. I am a self proclaimed foodie and this passion for food was the main drive for starting the business.
At the beginning of 2014, I personally felt street food was still in its infancy within the Midlands. I was eager to get on the scene and be apart of what I saw as a growing movement.
The general public have become more food curious and I didn't see any other trader offering diversity within Caribbean food. The restricted menus from other Caribbean traders became the driving force for 63 Island's unique selling point: "street food from Caribbean islands". With that, my culinary research into the islands as to what dishes defined and differentiated them from one another had began.
The key objectives I set out to achieve with 63 Islands, was to cook good quality street food and let people know there is more to Caribbean cooking than jerk chicken.
Settlers coming from countries such as France, Spain, India, and The Netherlands brought native foods and dishes to the Caribbean islands giving us a rich diversity of flavours and cuisines. 63 Islands looks to celebrate this diversity with dishes from around the Caribbean and broaden perceptions on what is known as Caribbean food.
We are learning and cooking new island dishes all the time, so please keep an eye on our 'Menu' page to view our current and full menus to see what we're up to.
63 Islands caters at street food events, food festivals as well as corporate and private events. To keep track of where you can find us, please see our 'Upcoming Events' page.
We are available for hire and our menus can be catered to suit you. If you require a full vegan menu or love seafood this can be easily arranged. Please check out our 'Private Bookings' page for more information.
