Feeling Hot, Hot,Hot

Want a taste of the Caribbean? If you enjoy exotic foods rich with spices and seasoning, then Flames Restaurant is the place to visit. With three locations in the Boston area, I would highly recommend the Brigham Circle location because of its close proximity to Northeastern University. Hop on the Green Line to Heath street and get off on the Brigham Circle stop and across the street, you will enter island paradise.

Flames has a great selection of appetizers, desserts, sides and entrées that are reminiscent of the rich and diverse culture of the West Indies. This Jamaican-style restaurant offers an array of food. From jerk chicken to oxtail and curry goat to more vegetarian meals, there’s a selection for everyone. Since I’ve been living in Boston for the past six years, I can honestly say that I have never been disappointed and recommend any of their dishes. In addition, the decor of the restaurant is simply splendid. The interior furnishings are aesthetically pleasing especially the palm tree decorations and the African-inspired paintings on the walls. Besides the great tasting food and interior designs, the staff is welcoming and friendly. One waiter, Robinson, always has a smile on his face and provides fast service to his customers. There’s never a dull moment at Flames and the flat screen TV always displays the latest soccer games. Also, if your on a tight budget, Flames has Breakfast meals from $5.75 and Lunch/Dinner plates that start at $7.00. You don’t have to pay big to eat big!

Indeed, Flames is truly one of the best Caribbean restaurants in Boston. For any incoming freshman or new residents, if you like or are curious about West Indian food, try it out at Flames and you will truly experience a piece of Caribbean-style cooking.
