Our Story

Tucked away in a somewhat hidden alcove in Kingston is where you can “Taco Bout It” with Tradewinds. Although it has a feel of always being there, it was only December 2019 when the- proprietors Marquese “Queso” Maduro and Shamora “Molly” Penn first opened their doors an idea that was born pre-Irma and Maria, 2017. When asked if their plans were derailed, they both simultaneously answered ‘No’. It was at that time they knew they had to bring their vision to fruition.

But as we all know, things are a bit slow paced in the BVI. It took them a few years to bring their vision full circle. Initially they planned on supplementing the historical Anglican Church next door, as it was often a tour stop for tourists. Tradewinds would be there to offer much needed island libations, cocktails, restrooms and a relaxation space. Hurricanes Irma and Maria however, delayed the church’s restoration, but the Dynamic Duo (as I call them), pushed ahead with their plans.

They knew they wanted to bring a different product to the Territory. They knew they had to get it right the first time. They knew location mattered and they decided, ‘let’s build it and they will come’. Queso and Molly toyed with several ideas in their quest to find their niche. Molly recalled having an “ah hah” moment and thus a Mexican restaurant was born, beginning their exciting, exotic, culinary journey. At this point, the journey began.
