west indian food

There's this little cafe in Mandeville run by an old friend's
mother that is absolutely fantastic. They are from Guyana
originally, and my god do they make good food. Roma's Roti
Cafe, at the corner of Florida & Coffee.

So, Saturday evening the parents and I go there to get some
sweet west indies curry, and there's this contractor sitting
there by himself, finishing his supper. He spent about fifteen
minutes talking on his cell phone while in there, in a thick
alabama or georgia middle-of-nowhere sort of accent, and raved
about the food.

I think we may be bringing some culture to the army of flannel
shirts and pickup trucks invading our fair town from parts
north. Just maybe.

I love west indies/carribean curries...there's nothing quite like hot peppers, cummin, and bananas. Maybe some good cooking will make that part of the country a little less crazy.
