Caribreeze Vegetarian Cuisine-Spring Valley NY. Excellent Find!

budinado | Jun 9, 200806:57 PM     4

It's always a wonderful experience to discover a funky place serving unique, delicious, affordable food. Caribreeze is as "chowhound" as you can get! Walking in it looked like just another Jamaican takeout with a high counter and only three or four tables. A friendly grandmotherly Jamaican woman described about six dishes (the menu changes daily). All unusual vegetarian concoctions. All Caribbean, with some Jamaican dishes (vegetarian patties were available). She gave me a taste of each and I couldn't decide because they were all SO delicious! Lots of "mock" chicken curries.I ended up ordering a large $9 plate sampler and it was a bargain. There was a giant bean dish that really knocked my socks off. In many ways this place reminds me of the now defunct Green Symphony restaurant in Port Chester, only I like Caribreeze even better.

If Caribreeze were located in Westchester I would be eating there two or three times a week. Since I'm over in Rockland once a week, this will be a regular stop. Unfortunately I know of no other restaurant like this anywhere.

Location: 42 North Main St. Spring Valley 10977. Phone: 845-426-2600. Set your navigators and enjoy.
