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 today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Caribbean fare at Taste of the Caribbean Restaurant in Gretna.
Taste of the Caribbean treats diners searching for tropical flavors to a menu brimming with entrees from countries such as Haiti, Honduras, and more. Kick-start a morning fiesta with the latin breakfast, a piquant amalgamation of eggs, plantains, skirt steak, beans, avocado, and tortilla ($7.50). For maritime eats, diners can select fresh fish entrees of grilled snapper ($20) and fried fish ($16) to populate their internal tanks, and spice savorers can introduce taste buds to a plate of curry oxtail ($16).
Taste of the Caribbean also boasts a selection of fresh natural juices ($2+) made from fruits such as tamarind, passion fruit, and pineapple, each imported directly from Honduras’ fruit-growing outpost inside the French embassy on an American moon base.
