Jamaican Chinese

Mitzimouse Nov 3, 2009 03:26 PM

I know there is (was?) a large Chinese population in Jamaica that has resulted in a culinary fusion of cuisines. Does anyone know of any good spots to try this specialty? I don't mean Hakka - which I believe is a different animal.

    I think you will find that there might be fried rice or chow mein at some west Indian places. You might even find siu mein or a sau bao, but I do not know of a place that specializes in that type of cuisine. Also you might find that other West Indian places often have similar "Chinese" style dishes.

      I believe there's a place called Wong's on Bathurst north of Bloor that does exactly what you are after...had it once, good stuff but heard pretty complimentary reviews on this board in the past

        Wong's closed about two years ago IIRC.

          Wish I knew that WONG's was closed last month. I totally went to its former location last month to specifically try out the Chinese Jamaican food and it was definitely 100% closed. :( I procrastinated too long and heard about this place for years from reviews on EYE and NOW magazine.

          Any more suggestions on authentic Chinese/West Indian restaurants to try out? I specifically wanna visit a place where the person cooking is Chinese and did originate from Jamaica, Guyana, Trinidad or other parts of the Caribbean.
