Scotch bonnets and sexy juice
Tasty food puts a smile on my face, but a meal that takes me back to my childhood wins my heart. When I first smelt the unmistakable fragrance of curry goat I knew I was home. I placed my order and as I took the first bite I was whisked back to my childhood, sitting at my Grandma's table, eating lunch with my sisters.

With a bright yellow sign, the sound of reggae (and sometimes Gospel) music, and the scent of jerk chicken wafting your way, you'd be forgiven for thinking you were in the Caribbean.
Talk of the Town serves traditional Caribbean food and drink, from oxtail, stewed chicken, ackee and saltifsh to cow foot. They haven't forgotten about the sides either: green banana, fried dumplings, fried plantain and festivals are also available.

I can safely say I've enjoyed the stewed chicken, ackee and saltfish, saltfish fritters, rice and peas, dumplings, plantain, chicken wings, steamed vegetables and the red breem. Each dish is as good as my Grandma's traditional Caribbean recipes, which friends and family rave about.

They've created a balance of traditional flavours, which harmonise on your tongue as you tuck in. All of the dishes are cooked on site with fresh ingredients. Traditional Caribbean drinks are also whipped up in the kitchen; carrot juice Guinness punch and sexy juice are available throughout the day.

Talk of the Town also caters for inner city companies, so if your boss is kind enough to let you choose where the members of the meeting are having lunch, place an order and you'll be the bosses favourite.

Discounts are available at certain times for school children, so if your child is nearby, they can fill the gap for less than you might imagine. There are few (if any) healthy, tasty, and affordable lunch options for school kids in the city centre, so it's a welcome relief to know your child won't starve when they're in town with their mates before coming home.

A lot of Caribbean takeaways outside of the city centre have a reputation for being hostile environments, despite the good food. Talk of the Town, however, are an exception and they have a long list of loyal customers, which shows they're doing something right. They've truly filled a niche, and many bellies.

Simply put, Talk of the Town serves proper, healthy, delicious, filling, and satisfying Caribbean food with just enough scotch bonnet to make you remember them.
