Let's Do Lunch: Carribbean Cuisine

This is the finest and least expensive lunch, ever.  Located cattywampus from Sharpstown High School, on Bissonnet, and tucked back in the corner of a strip center, you'll find Carribbean Cuisine.   Many reviews would have you believe this is a scary, scary place.  Well, not during the day....besides, reports indicate that the sketchy apartments across the street are slated to be razed.  Hell. Yes.  I stop in for patties on the weekend, my grand idea of brunch.  Two meat patties, to go, $3.03 total drive out.  They are hot, fresh, flaky-crusted stuffed patties. Two will completely fill you up, feeling guilty?  Get one meat, one veggie. Yes, I told you Reggae Hut made some nice patties.  Don't tell them, I said - but, these are better.  Not by a couple lengths, perhaps by a nose, or three. 

Family-owned, Miss Ina has been cranking out home cooking and the price is nice.  Two people can have a pattie and share "Roun' De Yard" or a nice jerk or curry plate, and be stuffed.  Also, they have a grocery nook, if you're looking for pigeon peas, jerk seasoning, and a host of other Jamaican groceries.  The restaurant is small, seating about 24 people.  Those of us from the Southwest Side, get it to go.  Goat Curry, Jerk Whatever (Pork, Chicken, etc), vegetable and meat patties,  Coco bread.  Fish.  Shrimp.  Outstanding.  Do yourself a favor, don't be put off by the neighborhood.  I mean really, EaDo is a little RunDo....as are many places/neighborhoods lauded for their superb ethnic restaurants.  Besides, all the foodies know you need a CHL and a piece to try some of the best places....really.
