       You can't drive far in downtown Kaohsiung without spotting a restaurant serving exotic cuisine--Malaysian, Vietnamese, Indian, Thai, or a combination thereof. One of the most recent additions to Kaohsiung's international food scene is The West Indian Restaurant, located not far from the MinTzu Road branch of Dollars.

       As its name suggests, this establishment (open since June) serves something very rare in South Taiwan--Caribbean fare. The proprietor, chef, and face on the sign is Kent, a Seventh Day Adventist missionary from the small island of Dominica. Supporting him in this home business and his strong religious beliefs is his wife, Jasmine.

       Together they provide a quiet place to enjoy a nutritious home-cooked West Indian meal. They've turned the ground floor of their home (their church is in the same building) into a public dining room. With a TV set, sound system, and Kent's company, it's easy to imagine that you're visiting friends.

       Their faith prevents them from serving alcohol. However, patrons are welcome to bring their own--in moderate quantities, of course. And you needn't worry about religious issues or messages interfering with the experience.
Kent himself recommends Scallop Potatoes (NT$50) followed by homemade Pumpkin Pie (NT$30). Both items are delicious, as are the homemade drinks.

       The menu is limited, but offers something interesting for everyone (vegetarians included). There are curries, spaghetti, and pizza, plus Palaw, which is rice stewed with chicken and beans. Set meals go for NT$150.
Kent and Jasmine are more than happy to accommodate pre-booked parties. Call for details.
