I am also expanding my husband's palate with many different kinds of food. Most recently, in particular, is the traditional Caribbean taste at Island Flavors and Tings in Gulfport. Located at 1411 - 49th Street South, Island Flavors and Tings is sure to delight and surprise you! I almost drove past it the first time, so keep your eyes peeled!
We started off with the Jamaican 'hot-peppa' shrimp. "Not for the faint of heart. Shrimp tossed in our own rich spices and lots a scotch bonnet pepper." ($7.95)
As always, I was undecided about my entree and as usual taking too long to order I finally decided on a special combo plate of brown stew chicken [chunks of chicken browned and stewed in a special sauce], curry chicken [chicken, potatoes and vegetables simmered in a thick curry sauce] and the jerk chicken.
Let me assure you this is not a small salad, this plate was more like a platter! I just love this presentation, though.
After we ate our meals, Helena was telling us about the mango ice cream and jerk pork. They don't have this all of the time, but even though I was stuffed, I just had to try some. Who would have thought that pork and ice cream would go together! (You may want to call before you go to see if it is available.)
