Over the next few weeks I intend to highlight a local organisation centring on some of our great local businesses. There is no priority in doing this it is just random.
I am starting with one just over a year old but already established in the heart of our neighbourhood. Carmen's Caribbean Cuisine is a takeaway at 219, London Road with a small seating area. Dee Griffiths started the business in memory of his Mum (Carmen) and her cooking from her homeland of Barbados.
I have used the place since it started and have tried most of the food. It is pretty authentic, I would say. Mainly spicy but pretty subtle sometimes. I love the Rice and Peas with its thymey finish and the Curry Mutton with steamed vegetables. According to Dee the Jerk Chicken is a favourite among locals.
So good luck for the future Dee.
Please let me know of your favourite or your local business and I shall put it on the list to publicise.
P.S. It must be in Stoke Town Centre or Boothen & Oak Hill ward to qualify.
