Though the Caribbean isles are well known to outsiders, Caribbean cuisine remains a hidden gem due to tourists frequently subsisting solely off a paste made from sand, ocean water, and puréed linen pants. Uncover the edible treasure of the tropics with this Groupon.

Presented by Caribbean Dutch Pot Restaurant, the first annual Baltimore International Reggae Jerk Fest brings the sounds, smells, and tastes of the Caribbean to Woodlawn Memorial Park. At Caribbean Dutch Pot's food stand, plates are piled with traditionally spiced jerk chicken, energizing attendees so that they can dance to the sounds of local reggae artists and peruse booths before Jamaican musician Sanchez serenades ears with dancehall, reggae, and R&B ballads. Serani, a reggae- and dancehall-influenced artist who has also produced artists such as Sean Paul, will aslo perform. Visitors can also enter to win a trip for two to Jamaica, sample a variety of other foods, and take little ones to visit the Kids Zone for face painting and jaunts on the moon bounce.

Caribbean Dutch Pot Restaurant

Caribbean Dutch Pot Restaurant's owner and culinary captain, Ras Prince, layers plates with traditional Jamaican fare. Prince draws from spice-heavy Caribbean recipes, incorporating chicken, goat, and seafood to silence stomach rumbles without diners having to snack on soundproof insulation. Events such as karaoke, culturally focused open-mic-poetry nights, and live reggae bands on Saturdays and Sundays further imbue the intimate space with a spirited, tropical atmosphere. That atmosphere will be carried over to Woodlawn Memorial Park in July when the Restaurant hosts a Reggae Jerk Festival. Inside the restaurant, elements of Caribbean design, such as bamboo accents and tables topped in reed placemats, complement brightly colored walls and free wireless internet routed through a coconut.

There is a little waiting involved, but be patient it's worth it.

It felt like genuinely stepping into an island cafe, with the fan blowing and reggae music. You go up to the counter and they serve up whatever you want from the buffet...jerk chicken, oxtail, veggies, curried goat, callaloo, plantains, and the most delicious beans and rice. Don't expect American-style full service at this cute hole-in-the-wall gem, but the food is so good, we went back the next week and paid regular price. Thanks, Groupon! I would have never discovered this wonderful place without you!
