A good Roti in Grenada always seems to elude me. So when I received this post from Mimi a Washingtonian visiting Grenada, about her Roti experience at Ebony Restaurant in Grenville I just had to share it. Here Goes:
Ebony Restaurant is located in the heart of Grenville. I must admit from the outside I was very hesitant to eat from the restaurant but a good friend says she makes a special visit to Ebony’s every time she returns home to Grenada.
After much anticipation about Ebony’s having the best Roti in Grenada I was not disappointed.
The menu consists of traditional Grenadian dishes. I ordered a Lambi (Conch) Roti which is one of the best Roti’s I ever had (other being in Trinidad at the Roti Shop). The lambi was perfectly seasoned and very succulent.
For someone with a small appetite the roti “perfectly portioned.” This is the second time I was able to eat an entire roti in one sitting. I ordered a passion fruit drink which was very thirst quenching.
The service was excellent, both waitresses were attentive and patient as we ordered our meals. The prices were very reasonable… cheap to be perfectly honest.
The restroom facilities need renovating. I was told from a friend who grew up in Grenville that they’ve been at that location for a very long time, which may explain the appearance.
I am so disappointed we didn’t order any Rotis to go because it was a long and dismal night with the Lambi Roti on my mind (even when I returned to the states).
In a nutshell I will return to Ebony Restaurant during my next visit to Grenada. 5/5 stars for me given I was able to get beyond Ebony’s aesthetics.
