French Caribbean is not only Haïti.
The food in Martinique or Guadeloupe is not the same.

I've been dying to try bake and shark for the longest time. Does anyone know restaurants in Toronto (I'm talking to you Edward) that sells it? Most Trini restaurants just sells Roti and Doubles.

Back to the topic- I'm another one for Anglo-Caribbean, yeah I'm bias! I can eat Marconi pie all day.

Drupati's in Scarborough was the only place I could track down in TO that had it, but only as an occasional special. It was decent, nothing special but will do the trick. Call ahead and see which days each month they are serving it.

I have no idea why the Roti Shops in TO dont step outside the Roti, Doubles and Palourie box. There is alot of good Roti in TO though.

Thanks, I heard about Drupati's. I was hoping you knew some other places with a secret menu or something.

After I posted, I stumbled across this video


Street Eats 106 Trinidad - Shark & Bake - YouTube

I can't believe I don't remember this episode, I use to watch this show religious when it was on the air. However it doesn't look like this restaurant is in business anymore.But I'll check it out when I'm back in TO.

This is so hard to choose. I love them all. To be honest all regions of the Caribbean share the same food and culinary traditions with each nation having at least one or a few dishes that are distinctly traditionally rooted from each respective nation.

The food of Jamaica, Barbados, Bahamas, Antigua and Barbuda, and the British Virgin Islands is more reflective of English Caribbean food as those nations have strong rooted populations that are more heavily Brittanicized and Anglicized.

Nations and places like Dominica, Trinidad, St. Lucia, Grenada, St Vincent and the Grenadines, St. Kitts have histories and cultures that are more rooted in a French and Latin Caribbean style. Also lots of French patois and French creole cultures in those places. All of these nations have more in common and almost identical to Martinique, Guadeloupe, and French St Martin etc. Therefore the food differs in these nations and places from other English speaking nations and regions. Haiti differs from every other Caribbean nation in many ways given it's unique unique history.

I absolutely love oxtail roti and pilouri balls with all with seasoned hot pepper sauce and tamarind sauce. Oh and I love to have it with a Ting grapefruit carbonated beverage drink.

I also cannot forget Accra titiri, bacalao and beef patties and Pelau and fritura.

Cuchifritos are so good. Y'all have to go to a cuchifritos place. They serve all traditional Puerto Rican foods as well as the extensive fried goods.

Oh gosh, I'm getting hungry! LOL
