26 Jan A Taste of Tants @ Couples Lounge
This weekend I had the pleasure of having some truly authentic West Indian food. Every Saturday,
at Couples Bar & Grill (noon to 8pm), a “Taste of Tant’s” is available for one and all. Last Saturday,
as I walked into the building, the smell of delicious food overtook me. I was anticipating this meal all week.
Long story short, I was not disappointed! The food was appetizing to my eyes & quite flavorful to my palate.
Tant’s offers true homestyle Caribbean meals & the portions she serves are plentiful.
On the menu, there’s Jerk BBQ chicken, island stew chicken, chicken marsini (curried), braised oxtail,
curried crab & dumplings, king fish maraval (sauteed), curried shrimp, chaconia salmon (broiled).
Some weeks the fish dishes vary as to maintain variety. Each of these meat, poultry or seafood dishes
come with two sides & a mesclun salad (mixed greens). Additional sides can also be purchased.
Roti & buss-up-shot is available on an every-other-week basis.
For side dishes, Tant’s offers Calypso rice, rice & peas, jasmine white rice, veggie lomein, callaloo,
pumpkin, potato salad, macaroni pie, curry chick peas and potatoes.
On the drink menu there’s refreshing sorrel and mauby that honestly takes you right into the heart
of a Caribbean island.
Tant’s special, homemade rum drizzled carrot cake is available to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Delivery is available with any purchase of $25 or more between the hours of 12 30pm and 6pm.
Areas served include Brownsville, Flatbush, East Flatbush, East New York, Canarsie & Crown Heights

My personal favorites were the crab & callaloo, the jerk bbq chicken, the macaroni pie & the mauby!
A Taste of Tant’s comes highly recommended by me. Be sure to stop by Couples on a Saturday afternoon & partake of some good ole Caribbean food.
