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 pureed linen pants. Uncover the edible treasure of the tropics with today’s Groupon to Simma Down Caribbean Cafe. Choose between two options:
- For $10, you get $20 worth of Caribbean cuisine during dinner.
- For $5, you get $10 worth of Caribbean cuisine during lunch.
Simma Down whisks noshers away on a savory sojourn to the Caribbean isles with a tasty squad of lunch and dinner dishes. Amuse mouths with an array of scrumptious starters, including fried, ripe plantains ($5) and salt-fish fritters, a Jamaican favorite ($6). Carnivorous tongue buds leap to attention when faced with the spicy authority of the jerk meal with chicken or pork ($13 for dinner, $7 for lunch), and the herbivore-friendly Ital menu ($13 for dinner, $7 for lunch) serves fresh vegetables flavored with coconut to greens-loving palates. The question “A crustacean may love a root vegetable, but where would they live?” is answered to delicious effect with the land-and-sea-unifying sweet-potato crab cakes ($8). Spice-dodging munchers can partake in more traditional American fare such as a classic hamburger sided with coconut rice ($6). Finish feasts by gazing in wonder at the flame-coated shell of the banana flambé, a delicious tropical flashlight-turned-dessert ($4).
The friendliness of the staff and the soul-pleasingness of the food at Simma Down are reflected in the restaurant’s colorful interior. Sample and share in a cozy atmosphere that ensures both a delightful meal and an exquisite postmeal staring contest with the sunny-yellow walls.
