There is nothing like good Caribbean food. You can give me Curry Goat, Jerk Chicken, Oxtails and Red Snapper with Rice and Peas and a side of cabbage any day! So every once in a while when I get a craving for this and I want to sit down and dine in at a more formal Caribbean Restaurant I go to Negril Village. They have really good food and they play all the tunes I like to dance to in a more upscale setting than the rest of the Caribbean restaurants I know. Also, what I like most is it is sort of a two for one restaurant. Meaning, upstairs is a dining restaurant and downstairs is the Rhum Lounge which is more of a fun lounge environment. I recently went to Negril and tried their Rasta Pasta. To be completely honest, it doesn’t compare to Footprints’ Rasta Pasta but it was good. I’ve also had Negril’s oxtails before and they’re pretty good. After my meal I indulged in what I call “a sweet taste of heaven,” their mini molten cake and vanilla ice cream. Heaven!
