Best Caribbean: Caribbean Kitchen

353 N. Calvert St., (410) 837-2274

And we can’t help it that when we take a few bites of the rice and peas and plantain, it calls our name softly, yet insistently—like the subliminal message contained in the Red Stripe cardboard cutout that stands near Caribbean Kitchen’s service window, which makes us want to chase our meal with as many Red Stripes as we can get our hands on. None of that really matters. What does matter is that CK is still the best.
