10. Caribbean Express
(6033 Miramar Pkwy, Miramar, 954-981-4989)

This well-respected food haven has been a favorite choice for many of the top artists in reggae and soca music, DJs, and record collectors. While the many record shops that once stood on the same block unfortunately could not stand the test of time, Caribbean Express, in the words of Sizzla Kalonji, has been “holding firm” for over 15 years. Known for their savory brown stew chicken, oxtail, and curry goat, you can’t go wrong ordering anything on the menu. What sets The Express apart from other Jamaican restaurants? Two things. 1) They have mastered the art of Rice and Peas: Not too hard and not too soft. The perfect medium. 2) They have arguably the best ackee & saltfish on the east coast of North America. Its quite possible that they sprinkle some sort of sweet tasty drug in this popular dish. They also serve ackee and salt fish during the evening some days, unlike most Jamaican restaurants that only serve it during breakfast.
