Its June foodies! That means its officially Caribbean-American Heritage Month! To celebrate, we will be highlighting some of the best Caribbean restaurants to visit in the DMV this week.
In 2006, President George W. Bush declared June as the National Caribbean-American Heritage month to acknowledge their contributions to the United States throughout history. Caribbean-American immigrants and residents of the U.S territories are a vital part of American culture. Their traditions, foods, music, innovations, skills, and style have influenced and enriched many aspects of our country. As of 2016, about 4% of the U.S. population have Caribbean ancestry.
Andrene’s Caribbean Soul Food Cafe has the DMV raving about its authentic Jamaican cuisine. Many have sung the praises of their flavorful oxtails and spicy jerk wingettes! Andrene’s stands out from the rest because they have also incorporated the soul food of the south alongside their Caribbean dishes! Slabs of ribs, macaroni and cheese, collard greens, and cornbread are all available at Andrene’s Cafe.
Their food is no doubt some of the most authentic Jamaican food in the city, and to make it even better– they provide several discounts for students, seniors, bus drivers, military service officials, and post office personnel. Talk about an establishment that cares– we love to see it!
There’s no better time than now to support black business and uplift the Caribbean culture to show our appreciation for their contributions to our society. If you are looking to do your part for the culture, or just simply looking for some Jamaican food to blow your socks off– Andrene’s Caribbean Soul Food Cafe is the place to go!
Andrene’s Caribbean Soul Food Cafe is open Monday-Saturday 11 am-8 pm. Get your order in.
