caribbean flavours - ottawa (review)

cctc | Oct 9, 2002 08:56 PM

the only caribbean restaurant with vegetarian options that I've ever found...I had veg platter with curried tofu, perfectly fried plantains (hint of sweet with saltiness) and some other grilled and fried vegetables. It came with fresh homemade vegetable soup and rice and beans. Also had home-brewed non-alcholic ginger beer to drink, very different from the mass-market goya kind I'm used to - very spicy and kind of raw ginger-tasting, but I liked it. My dining companion had goat "caribbean-style" with mango chutney and thought it was very good. They also serve fish, beef, and various kinds of rotis, as well as tempeh!

Only downside was service - it was obviously the waitress' first night on the job and she was clueless. Thankfully the chef stepped in so that everything went ok. Not a problem that would keep me from going back at all.
