I have to say I haven't been to Bamboo Fire Cafe but I will be going soon!

I have read about it and I thought maybe some other people in Delray might want to know about this restaurant -- plus it's a family-owned business that could use the support of local residents, and tourists in Delray.

Please show your support for our local businesses! They are what make Delray unique.

I am a retired hotel general manager that has spent 35 years running hotels in the Caribbean. My wife and I just returned from lunch at Bamboo Fire. First, the hospitality could not have been better. The owners are wonderful people. We had several appetizers and all were excellent. My wife had the jerk chicken fajita and I had the curry chicken. Superb. The food is authentic Caribbean Island Cusine. Alfred G.

So dickinboca starts a thread and says how great Bamboo Fire Cafe is and how lovely and friendly Donald and Beverly are.

Well he was right the food was great!

Flavor profiles spot-on and truly special treat in a small and personal setting. I arrived at Bamboo Fire with my two fiends both foodies in their own right.

I told them about this place we show up -- and of course PALM BEACH POST is there with there entourage!

But I have to say Donald and Beverly rallied to make sure our evening was great, I LOVE THIS PLACE!!!! Here is a low down on what we sampled...

Curried meatballs really good juicy and awesome. Conch fritters with real conch in them light and airy super good. Garbanzo Fritos have to be tried I cannot explain how good they where. Bacaloa Codfish fritters really fresh and light batter not heavy like some places.

Goat stew I have to say probably the best braised meat I have ever had. Made me smile. Chicken wings Escoveitch never had wings this way before really unique worth a try for the wing mavens out there.

Macaroni and cheese -- forget about it! So good, crispy crunchy and creamy garlicky goodness I wish I could eat this every day. Maduras (sweet plantains) cooked perfect I am not a big fan of sweet plans but these were cooked perfect!

Rum cake WOW!!!!! Tasted like there was a floater of 151 on top! Super end to a super night!

Please do not hesitate to try this place it is small, warm and is filled with the love of food.

Thank you dickinboca for the great find this is the kind of restaurant Delray really needs more of. Pikiliz

Best Caribbean Food
by: Kellee

My family and more went to eat dinner tonight in Pineapple Grove. We we're looking for a good place.

There were 10 of us and we were all treated like absolute royalty and served up the BEST Caribbean food by the nicest folks.

I love supporting a FAMILY business and supporting local business owners.

The service was definitely "Island style" because everything was cooked FRESH!

We enjoyed some appetizers, a smooth sangria and some had island beers. The guys liked the amber beer from Guyana and Kalick.

The best thing about the restaurant, is that not one single one of us left without out saying this was by far the best meal we have had in a long time!!!

Jerk chicken, oxtail, cracked conch even the curry goat my honey made me try was out of this world.

If you haven't been to Bamboo Fire Cafe you are missing out. Keep it local folks!!! xoxo
