Are you thinking about going out to eat tonight and can’t decide where to go? Well, instead of opting for one of your usual destinations, why not try something different and eat at a Caribbean food restaurant? It will be a new experience you won’t regret trying. Caribbean restaurants have amazing menus and so many great dishes to try, but how exactly will you know which dishes are worth trying? Well, all of them are amazing, but here are the top three best Caribbean food dishes you need to try:
- Jerk Chicken- Jerk chicken is a balance of sweet, smoky, and spicy. It is a delicious dish that involves a fiery marinade and a delicious rub made of different spices, and once marinated and rubbed, the chicken is then grilled to perfection. Jerk chicken is then served with rice and vegetables. This is definitely a dish you don’t want to miss out on.
- Curry Goat- Curry goat is a dish that has traveled the globe and has been adopted by many ethnicities, each adding its own spin to it. However, the Caribbean version is the most popular. Curry goat is a dish that must be slow-cooked with a blend of spices to acquire a rich and full flavor and allow the goat to be easily pulled off of the bones. If you have tried curry chicken and loved it, you must try curry goat. You will fall even more in love with Caribbean cuisine once you have experienced curry goat.
- Jamaican Patties- If you don’t have the time to sit down in a restaurant and need to order take-out or just want a quick, but delicious, meal, try Jamaican patties. This is the ideal meal for take-out or a quick dine-in that will leave you wanting more. Jamaican patties are hand pies that are savory and similar to empanadas. They can be made with either beef or chicken, but typically beef is the preferred choice. The beef inside is seasoned, and then once onions, garlic, chili peppers, and thyme are sautéed, the beef gets added in to create the hand pie filling. Once that is done, the patties are assembled and baked. This delicious dish is one you do not want to miss out on.
These three dishes are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to some of the best Caribbean food out there. Get out of your comfort zone and try some of the best Caribbean food at Caribbean Hut in Charlotte, North Carolina. We’ll make your meal one you won’t forget!
