After touring the nation with his show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, celebrity chef Guy Fieri is returning to some of his favorite restaurants featured on the show with his new series Triple D Nation. On the Food Network premiere episode, a local restaurant served up Trinidadian fare takes the stage.

Pam's Kitchen, located in Wallingford and now South Lake Union, started out as Pam's Snack Shack in Trinidad before Pam Jacob moved to the Pacific Northwest. In anticipation of her restaurant's second television appearance with Fieri, she shows us how to cook up their jerk pork ribs and delicious coconut fry bread.

New episodes of Triple D Nation air Friday nights at 9:00 p.m. on The Food Network.
