Caribbean Flava, a restaurant offering a catering and take-away (can order through Just Eat) service, prides itself on its “authentic and traditional Caribbean fare, with no gimmicks or twists and served with love.”
Renee, the charming owner and head cook, is originally from the ‘Emerald Isle of the Caribbean’, Montserrat. She has chosen to pursue her passion for cooking Caribbean food with this, her first restaurant. She says the most popular dishes on the menu are curried goat and jerk chicken served with rice, steamed vegetable and plantains. The restaurant’s signature jerk sauce is in high demand and there is a ‘Soup of the Day’ with specialities like Oxtail soup, Mutton Soup and more.
The Flava has a diverse clientele, with a high percentage of regulars. Food is very popular with some of the older customers; one 70 year old from Nottingham, who always visits when he is in the area, refers to the oxtail soup, “Momma’s soup”, as it reminds him of his grandmother’s recipe.
A full catering service is also offered, which is sought after for celebratory events like birthdays, anniversaries and christenings. The largest event Renee has catered for has been a reception for over 350 guests!
The restaurant area also caters to private parties, seating 30 and accommodating 50 standing. This is a large and airy room painted in bright colours with island paintings on the wall. The colourful bar in the corner is called ‘The Hideaway Bar’, and Renee is in the process of procuring a licence to serve drinks, after which she plans to host regular events, like karaoke, poetry recitation evenings and more. So keep your eyes peeled…..
