"Our bowls and tacos are filled with authentic Caribbean flavors that transport you to the islands with every bite," explained a spokesperson for the food truck. "Each dish is prepared with care, using fresh ingredients and traditional recipes that capture the essence of Caribbean cuisine."


Another popular item on The Original Caribbean King’s menu is its salads, which — like the bowls and tacos — can be filled with either Oxtail, Jerk Chicken, Coconut Shrimp, Curry Chicken, or Jerk Tofu. Completing each dish is a healthy serving of lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, red cabbage, corn, banana peppers, pickles, and sweet plantains.

"The Coconut Shrimp Salad from The Original Caribbean King was a delightful street dining experience," said a satisfied customer. "The shrimp was perfectly crispy with a delicious coconut coating that complemented the sweet plantains and tender red cabbage nicely. It was a flavorsome blend of textures and tastes that left me thoroughly satisfied."
