All I have to say is $5* oxtail!
I came through Mist to check out their Caribbean Corner Mondays. A friend mentioned a $5* oxtail plate and I had to see it for myself. I got there about 8:30 pm. It wasn’t crowded but there were a decent amount of people there. The bartender was cool and helpful. She told me I could sit at the bar or take a seat anywhere and a waiter would come to me. Cool.
I did my people watching thing. It was a nice, after-work scene. Reggae and soca tunes were jamming in the background. I was just trying not to whine too much in my seat. I ordered my food. It was a small portion, as to be expected for the price. It was BLESSED. The oxtail was on point, rice and peas were nice, the cabbage- blessed and the one lone fried plantain? Y’all, I could cry. I also got two rum punches…I don’t know how authentic they were, but they were strong.
I should add, I ended up running into a cool brother that I had met the day before at the #Headshotsanyone? event. It was his first time there for Caribbean Mondays as well and he joined me and loved the food as much as I did. He described it as “The best $15 ever spent!” and I agreed.
Definitely going to make this a regular thing.
