Some of the best Caribbean food that Brooklyn has to offer.

671 Washington Ave., Brooklyn, NY, 11238


Known For

The lowdown

Jerk chicken that’s equally fiery and fall-apart tender. Plump shrimp swimming in a sea of fragrant coconut sauce. Curried goat so soft, you won’t mind staining your fingers yellow as you root for one last morsel. Bring a group of friends and order half the menu. You won’t find finer Caribbean food in the neighborhood.
