Hello Foodies, For this sponsor, we want to turn the gears and highlight a specific item that the business will be selling, especially because it's something we recommend you pack your shelves with ASAP! The restaurant, Carib Shack, has an incredible history we've already mentioned before. To make sure they're staying afloat among all the other family-owned businesses, owner Patricia Lewis is always "cooking" up new ideas for customers.
Sea Moss at Carib Shack (Paste)
Lewis has shipped some organic sea moss, or known as Irish moss, from overseas right into the heart of London to make a delicious and healthy paste that is sold upfront at their store. The owner thoroughly cleans, processes, and cooks the paste for you to put into any of your dishes as a "super" flavor. You're wondering now, what is sea moss? Well, it's a type of seaweed found in the sea that hosts a multitude of beneficial nutrients. As recommended by Lewis, she loves to add this paste to thicken her stews and soups.
Benefits of Sea Moss
"Did you know that sea moss is basically a super food that holds 92 minerals [out of the 102 essential minerals] needed in our body?"
The listed and scientifically proven facts of sea moss seem endless, so let's summarize some of our largest benefits.

Other Menu Items While You're There
Of course, Patricia always makes sure we never leave on an empty (or unsatisfied) stomach.
We were also delighted to try two of their popular dishes, Ox Tail with rice and a braised chicken cooked as a side before we left. Both the meats were cooked perfectly and were packed with flavour!
