MSP - Soul food/Jamaican at Midtown Global Mkt.

My chowboy and I had a great lunch at the MGM on Sunday. The Jamaican/soul food place is one of our faves. I had the veggie roti and super-buttery mac and cheese. He had catfish, with fried okra and hush puppies. We're both from the south and really miss our comfort food. And I miss Caribbean food, after living in NYC, where it's easy to find.

Any good recos for soul food or Caribbean or both?

I've searched the board, but didn't find much for Caribbean. I've been to Victor's for Cuban, but I'm thinking more West Indies style cuisine.

    We love Marla's. We wish we'd get to eat there more often.

      I don't know if Harry Singh's is still at 26th and Nicollet like his website says, or if he's closed it and opened yet another incarnation, but he's one to search for.

        Brasa in NorthEast Minneapolis (a favorite among Chowhounds) serves excellent, mostly-organic-and-local-ingredients-based Southern and South American dishes. Roasted pork, collard greens, cornbread, yams with andouille sausage, black eyed peas, masa cakes. It's fantastic.
