Ritz is right across from the Eaton's centre and if you haven't eaten there, I am sure their colorful store sign caught your eyes once or twice. They specialize in Caribbean food and has super cheap lunch special, only $4.99 for lunch? I say that's a steal!!

 

 

To be honest, I am not too familar with Caribbean food since it's not very popular or easy to find in Vancouver. So I was super excited to see this place because I am always up for trying something new!

 

 

Once I stepped in, I was surprised to see the place so spacious. There were lots of seatings and if they wanted to, they could have squeezed in few more tables in.

 

 

I took my time checking out what they had behind the glass counter, and they had around 20 different types of food, varying from curry, jerk chicken, fried chicken to veggies.

 

 

They have very large menu with lunch and dinner specials. You can do dine in or take out.

 

 

 

I decided to go with the $4.99 lunch menu and got rice and jerk chicken. They gave me 2 pieces of chicken on top of the rice. Container looks small but it was actually quite filling.

 

 

Ordered: Jerk chicken & Rice 3/5

 

*Rice is filling and was quite spicy
*2 pieces: 1 leg and 1 thigh
*Chicken had lots of small bones which made it kind of hard to eat
*Meat was falling off the bones

 

*Can choose from coleslaw or gravy
*Coleslaw was way too sweet
*Perfect portion for lunch

 

Summary: For $4.99, I can't complain. Rice and Chicken was both decent. I am going back to try other items!

There is also another Carribean place just north of the Starbucks on Yonge and College if you're looking for another lunch spot. I loved the small little jerk place near where yonge and sherborne when I used to work at rogers hq. MMMmmm...Jerk chicken and Grace soda. Brings back memories!

That's a nice coating of jerk spice. Coleslaw for me should have a nice vinegary balance to help refresh the palate and a nice crispy crunch to it. What KFC servers it not coleslaw. :(
