The sweetness of ripe mangoes and the tasty goodness of meatballs is a match made in heaven. It’s a dish with everyone at your gathering asking for seconds.


Oxtails are a Caribbean classic that embodies the essence of comfort food. Our low-cooked to fall-off-the-bone tenderness Oxtails are simmered in a rich, hearty gravy packed with flavor. The tender meat and savory sauce make it the ultimate Fall dish. The meal warms your soul and leaves you feeling content and satisfied.

Curried Goat

Our Curried Goat is the way to go if you want to add some heat to your Fall gatherings. Tender pieces of goat meat are stewed in a fragrant curry sauce brimming with spices. The aromatic blend of flavors will fill your home with a comforting aroma that’s hard to resist.

Rum Cake

No Fall gathering is complete without a touch of sweetness. Our Rum Cake is the perfect dessert to end your meal on a high note. This moist and decadent cake is soaked in a rich rum-infused glaze that adds a delightful warmth to every bite. It’s a sweet indulgence that pairs perfectly with coffee or tea. Be warned, though – you might find it hard to resist a second slice!
