THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Brawta Cafe Restaurant Review

: Whether you order Big Tings, Sweet Tings or Little Tings, as the menu cutely groups dishes, everything is fresh and tasty. Try the curried goat or coconut shrimp, oxtail with lima beans, jerk chicken, buttered tiger shrimp, freshly sliced grouper or king fish. Also compelling is the usually hard-to-find ackee-codfish stew (the Jamaican national dish flecked with fiery scotch bonnet peppers). Don't miss out on one of the house drinks like sorrel (boiled sorrel petals, pimento, ginger and cloves), ginger beer, the virility aide sea moss (boiled seaweed and linseed with gum, Arabic and pimento, sweetened with condensed milk, vanilla and nutmeg) or the refreshing Pine-ade (a mix of ginger and pineapple).
