From humble beginnings in Tobago and Trinidad, respectively, the universe conspired to bring the two together in the Nordic European capital as chefs. That meeting evolved into them becoming business partners over the pandemic and today, owners of Island Hoppers, a Caribbean fine dining restaurant in Stockholm.

After more than 10 years in the party fixing and restaurant industry, including from Fåfängan and Mosebacke, the two Caribbean chefs have created an oasis for those who like food – especially Caribbean food. The restaurant was previously called Burgeria, but in 2022 has changed its name to “Island Hoppers” and refined the concept with an even greater focus on Caribbean food. Amann and Commissiong describe it as a fusion between African and Indian cooking with elements of Spanish flavors, and above all it consists of many spices inspired by Caribbean cuisine.
