Trapikal is the brainchild of Oshane Malcolm. Malcolm is a Jamaican-born chef with deep Irish-Jamaican roots. Having honed his culinary skills in restaurants across both Galway and Dublin, Oshane Malcolm decided to pay homage to his heritage and passion by bringing Jamaican flavours to the forefront. His fusion creations and traditional Jamaican offerings have catapulted Trapikal to gastronomic stardom.
Mr. Malcolm’s childhood memories, brimming with nostalgia and joy, serve as the cornerstone of Trapikal’s culinary philosophy. He has painstakingly crafted a menu that faithfully captures the essence and taste of the Jamaican dishes he grew up with. Now he’s ready to share this culinary treasure with Dublin’s food aficionados.
Trapikal will unfurl its shutters at Royalty’s Kitchen on Porters Avenue, Coolmine Industrial Estate on Monday, the 25th. They’ll kick off service around noon and continuing until 23:00.
