Finsbury Park is blessed to be home to the Trinidadian family who run not only Lulu’s Caribbean Cuisine but also Hannah’s, both on Stroud Green Road. But its fish and seafood treated in an inimitable Caribbean style that sets Lulu’s apart, though there are plenty of other classic sunkissed West Indian dishes on offer, including a good number of vegetarian options. Be sure to grab a classic rum punch or Jamaican soft drink to properly round off a meal at Lulu’s London Caribbean restaurant.
Lulu’s Caribbean Cuisine is great value for London families in search of a meal for the whole crew. The family pack includes whole and jerk chicken, barbecued meats, a generous serving of rice and peas, macaroni pie, coleslaw and the ubiquitous plantain. Be sure to a book a spot at Lulu’s Stroud Green Road premises if you want to go this route. Daily specials are also popular options at this Finsbury Park Caribbean restaurant, offering up a slew of jerk chicken dishes and pepper steaks, goat curries, all with a host of sides.
Great starters from the a la carte menu include the fried red fish and the sticky baby back lamb ribs, but real traditionalists will go for the crab callaloo soup, made with pumpkin, green banana, yam, sweet potato, dumplings and christophene or chayote. Get a taste of the India to West India connection with Lulu’s Caribbean Cuisine when you opt for the roti, stuffed with milled and seasoned split peas and a choice of fillings: potato and channa, curried goat, the classic ackee and saltfish, or the Indian-influenced dhal pouri. It’s something you’ll be hard pressed to find at other of London’s Caribbean restaurants, and just one of the many reasons this Stroud Greek Road, Finsbury Park restaurant is so popular.
