What You'll Get
Now that spinach has been deemed a performance-enhancing vegetable, Popeye's future shortstop career hinges on his transition to jerk chicken. Get a sailor's worth of energizing Caribbean cuisine with today's deal: for $20, you get $40 worth of Caribbean cuisine and drinks at the Kingston Café in Pasadena (closed on Mondays).
An authentic Caribbean restaurant run by a Jamaican family, Kingston Café takes taste buds to the islands with its lunch and dinner menus of spiced and curried meats and seafoods. Island appetizers can relish the flavorsome black-tiger shrimp ($9), fried in a Red Stripe beer batter and served with papaya, while those hoping to beat the traffic can skip straight to entrees. Caribbean classics include the Hot Flashes jerk chicken, marinated in a secret sauce ($16), while aquatic appetites appreciate the red snapper ($22), bedecked in flavor flippers from simmering in natural coconut milk. Vegetarians lured in by the Beach Boys' "Kokomo" can try the Caribbean Green ($14), an assortment of cabbage, broccoli, and squash sautéed in jerk sauce. Wash down the Antigua-inspired flavors with guava juice ($3), tropical ice tea ($2), or something from the café's fine wine selection.
TV-treasuring diners can savor their meal while watching the restaurant's huge HD projector, which comes in sporty for major events when bars are packed to the brim. Kingston's bright-orange dining room, lined with abstract art, facilitates a blissful and bold atmosphere, perfect for taking a date who prefers happy, energetic evenings to soul-sucking social engagements inside gray restaurants named "Le Hopelessness."

About Kingston Café
As sandy hardwood floors and a tropical mural conjure visions of sun-kissed shores, Kingston Café’s dining room fills with the spice-laden aroma of their kitchen’s colorful Jamaican dishes. Emerald fronds ring an airy space where Jamaica's national fruit, ackee, tempers the briny flavors of salted fish and house-made sangria or wine gurgles into glasses. Curry goat or jerk shrimp arrive with an entourage of toasted-coconut rice and plantains, played to their tables during weekly Saturday concerts featuring Caribbean Passion's reggae melodies or animatronic representations of famous steel-drum players.
