Try #21 New Restaurants: Marla’s Caribbean

So who’s been to Marla’s Caribbean Cuisine in South Minneapolis?

This little corner restaurant is been in the neighborhood since 2005, but I only discovered it this year, and boy do I wish I would have found this gem sooner! The owner Marla – who can be seen flitting around the restaurant nightly – puts out cooked-to-order Jamaican-Indian fusion dishes that will known your socks off!

A few weeks ago Remy and I took my mom and grandma out for dinner at Marla’s and we all had a wonderful time. Then a few days later we had to go again with our good friends Laura and Sarah! If you check it out be sure to try the “Da-Bulls” appetizer… it’s impossible to explain, but completely melt-in-your-mouth delicious!

Check out the accolades they’ve racked up!

Keep in mind that the jerk and the curry at Marla’s are smokin’ hot, so if you prefer your food with a Scandinavian (lack of) spice level then order yours extra mild!
