On a quck trip to charlotte yesterday I ended up by the University area looking for food. In the same center as Bombay indian restaurant is a Pho place called pho real that appears to be close to opening and there was also a Jamaican place - Golden Krust- that appears to be newly opened. The bill themselves as a bakery and grill serving the expected(jerk chicken oxtail escovitch and goat) and the unepected(jamaican sweets) I did not have a lot of time so I just opted for a beef patty. The crust was richer that usual and thankfully not overcooked. The beef was well spiced. Not sure if they do them in house or they arrive premade. They are part of a chain of jamaican restaurants. Had a decent space with tables out front then a counter then additional dining space in the rear. Nothing special just a cut above most caribean places in carolina which are usually take-out holes in the wall. did not see ackee on the menu. Service was nice and friendly.
Also stopped by the Total wine to see if they had any big beer's in. They just(still in boxes in the aisle) received white(33 and 75cl) and red chimays(75 cl) but as of now those are the only new beers in stock. Prices were 3.79 for the small and I think 8.50 for the 75cl which is slgihtly pricier than my local whole foods. Likewise for the Allagash - 5.49 in winston and 7.49 in Charlotte
