Caribbean Wings and Things

Another place less than a mile from the house that I've driven by daily for six months but never stopped, as wings rank low on my chow meter. Today, however, we broke the ice with a quick lunch.

Boy, have we been missing it!

Oxtails, good peas and rice, excellent platanos (sort of between ripe and unripe plantains). Everything rich with aromatics like nutmeg and allspice and whole peppercorns. Very piquant fruit based salad dressing. Oxtails cooked till tender, fat removed and skimmed from the gravy--which also included red, green and yellow peppers, carrots and onions.

Out of Roti and patties but we will report back. Have high hopes for the jerk pork and chicken, curried chicken and curried goat.

Chef-proprietor Judy is West Indian, most pleasant, and as it turns out a nearby neighbor in outer Dunwoody.

So from a parched chow desert ten years ago, we are now blessed just in the last year with:
--Olympic Kabob (previously posted about and across from Caribbean Wings and Things)
--Caribbean Wings and Things
--Ararat (the east european grocery previously posted about on Spalding just west of Holcomb Bridge)
--Contigu Peru #1 (P'tree Industrial just south of Winters Chapel).

Wow. Who would've thunk. Staid Dunwoody famous for housewives in tennis dresses and as a model for Stepford, is now turning chowish. Ok, its not Buford Hwy, but if Caribbean Wings and Things proves out, I suspect we will be seeing a lot of hounds making a pilgrimmage to Dunwoody!

Caribbean Wings and Things.
Across from Wayfield Foods and Olympic Kabob.
Winters Chapel Road 3/4 north from Peachtree Industrial. At corner of Peeler, right across from Olympic Kabob.
