It’s no surprise that West Indian food (Caribbean fare), which is heavily influenced by Chinese restaurants, West African grub and Indian restaurants’ cuisine, boasts some of the most flavorful dishes this side of the equator. If you’re looking to satisfy your savory tooth with a handheld beef patty snack or a mountain of tongue-tingling curry, thankfully, you won’t have to travel too far to find them. With West Indian enclaves throughout Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan, it’s fairly easy to find restaurants, steam tables and lunch counters dishing out the city’s tastiest curries, stews and roti—you just have to know where to look to treat yourself to a Caribbean-style staycation.
