#TheGrind – Is Brooklyn in the House?
Anyone who lives in Brooklyn knows about the huge Caribbean population from culture to customs. Islands such as Jamaica, Trinidad, and so many others influence the vibe of the borough and food is no different. Today, #TheGrind is putting ya’ll on to two spots guaranteed to give you a taste of the islands.
Let’s start with a crowd favorite, Peppa’s Jerk Chicken! If you’re looking for authentic jerk chicken, their food is as close to home as you can get on your lunch break. Located on Flatbush Avenue, Peppa’s offers a variety of meals ranging from jerk chicken, curry shrimp, escovitch fish plus side dishes all starting at just $9. Just a quick heads up, this restaurant is cash only so come with your coins ready!

Next up in Brooklyn is The Soul Spot! We love this place because they provide a mixture of southern and Caribbean food all in one place, who wouldn’t want oxtail and turkey wings on the same menu? Along with the diverse food selections, each meal from the lunch menu is served with two side orders and your choice of rolls which definitely makes these $10 plates worth it. Located on Atlantic Avenue, Soul Spot also offers online ordering so you can place your order and still have enough time to enjoy your break. Check them out!
