Upon entering Caribbean Cuisine (7433 Bissonnet, 713-772-8225), your first thought is a question: How can so many delicious smells emanate from one small storefront restaurant -- or rather, a half-restaurant and half-Jamaican grocery? The menu boasts the typical Jamaican fare -- jerk chicken, curried chicken and goat, oxtail dinner, brown chicken stew -- all with a distinctive Scotch bonnet zing that lingers comfortably on the tongue. When confronted with so many tantalizing aromas, the best thing to do here is take a trip Round de Yard. For $8.95, you can pick three entrées (except the seafood dishes) and have them served up with the traditional rice, peas and fried plantains. This dish can satiate one extremely hungry Rasta, maybe even two -- assuming, of course, they haven't partaken of their favorite herb beforehand.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
