This was the first time that I had been to Caribbean Flavas. My girlfriend suggested it after she saw their presentation at the school where she presently interns.
When we walked in the door we were greeted right away and had our coats taken and seated. The resturant wasnt very busy but we were there for a late dinner. Our server was very good and very friendly. If you have ever been down south the atmosphere was bang on what I was expecting and looking forward to.
We started off with an order of Tobago Cornmeal Shrimp. It wasn't a large appetizer but the flavor was incredible. After our appetizer we were served an order of hot coconut bread, this is a must try. It is hard to describe I have never had bread quite like it before.
For our meals, I had the Blackened Cajun Tenderlion Steak and my girlfriend had the Carnival Curry Flavas. Both meals were cooked at medium spice (which was spicey but we both enjoy spicey food). My steak was cooked to perfection just the perfect amount of spice and flavor. Along with my steak came a salad and Tandori Onion Rings. The salad was good it had a sweet vinigrette dressing which added an unexpected but delicious flavor. And I can't forget about the onion rings cause they were delicious by far the best onion rings that I have ever had. They weren't greasy, they were crispy and had lots and lots of flavor. My girlfriends Carnival Curry Flava was chicken with fresh vegetables sauteed in a coconut cashew curry. She also had the coconut rice with her meal. Her meal was also fanastic (I had my fair share) the rice was very different (kinda like the bread) but in a very good way. Had lots of flavor and it went very well with the coconut cashew curry and the chicken and vegetables.
The portions were a perfect size. My girlfriend even had a little left over for the next day.
We finished off the meal with a double chocolate cheescake. It was a very simple dessert but it tasted very good. It was a great way to finish off the meal.
My personal favorite part of the meal (besides the great food) was when the cook (Naz the owner) came out and talked to us for a good 20 or so mins. We talked alittle about his resturant and his "Shout Outs" that he has gotten over the years. In particular I wanted to hear the Justin Bieber "Shout Out" story. Only because it was the only name that kinda seemed out of place on the whole list. I just enjoyed the fact that he took the time to come and say hi and spend some time at our table. It was that personal touch that in my mind makes this resturant stand out above any other resturant that I have been to in Fredericton.
I can't wait till I am back in Fredericton so that we can go to dinner here again. I would recommend this resturant to everyone if you haven't tried it you really need to go today and have a great dinner.
