For a taste of island flare, head to Calabash Island Eats in the heart of downtown Houston. With ingredients from over 7,000 islands, guests can enjoy uniquely tropical tastes of the Caribbean including menu items like duck jerk wings with cucumber dipping sauce, curry soft shell crab, roasted pulled pork and plantains, and jerk rubbed chicken quarters. For dessert, treat your sweet tooth to spice cake and cream, Caribbean carrot cake or a classic island dish of grilled plantains with homemade coconut ice cream.
For breathtaking views of downtown, head over for happy hour and out to the patio to soak in the skyline and sip on cocktails. Same as the cuisine, Caribbean cocktails bring unexpected flavors to every day drinks. On a warm summer evening order a frozen Guava Delight made with cocounut, dark and spiced rum, guava nectar, pinepple juice and lemon or the Calabash Daquiri with white rum, grapefruit, lime, rose water and orange curacao. A full like of wine and beer is also available.
After dinner, stick around for live music on the patio or get moving on the dancefloor. Every Saturday night expect an exciting combination of Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Cumbia, Regueaton, Pop, Rock and traditional Afro-Caribbean music.
