Happy New Year 2016 everyone! In 2016, here's to love, laughter, family, great friends, and crazy delicious food!! :-)
We were located in Winnipeg's French Quarter, beautiful St. Boniface; unfortunately, we had to close our doors at this location. We are currently looking at potential locations so that we can reopen and continue on this wonderfully delicious culinary journey. We promise to keep you posted, thank you for your continued support.

Welcome to Purple Hibiscus …. let us take you to "d'Islands" of the Caribbean one "flava" at a time.
Savor the quintessential street food of Trinidad & Tobago – the famous Ali’s Doubles - which was "invented/created" by Ave's grandparents and their siblings back in 1936, in fact the name "doubles" did not come into existence until 1959.
The menu theme of Purple Hibiscus is today’s Caribbean style Fusion Cooking. While fusion cooking is not new, the type of Caribbean Dishes prepared and presented at Purple Hibiscus is.
The very nature of “the Caribbean” - our culture, people, history, and most of all, food - is the product of a fusion of flavours unmatched anywhere in the world. It is East meets West, when the world was still “flat”, and the evolution of that meeting. Purple Hibiscus is founded on and continues to draw inspiration from a rich history of traditional Caribbean cultures such as Amerindian (the Caribs and Arawaks), East Indian, African, Chinese, French Creole, Continental, each one directly influencing culinary favourites such as Creole Caribbean Cuisine, West Indian Curries, Caribbean Chinese, and the ultimate - Trini Flavours.
