Bara's Caribbean Cuisine - Mississauga Restaurant Review

Bara's Caribbean  Cuisine

Located in the Dundas and Huontario area of central Mississauga, Bara’s Caribbean Cuisine offers tasty and satisfying Trinidadian cooking.  Open every day except Mondays, Bara’s is great for dinning in for lunch, dinner, or you can just order take out.  The “Roti” is a primary staple in Trinidad, and Bara’s makes in my opinion the best in Mississauga.  Roti comes in two varieties, Dalpuri which is a flat thin bread with a chickpea filling or paratha which is a flat bread without chickpea and torn up.  The slang in Trinidad for Paratha is “buss up shirt” as the paratha resembles a busted T-shirt.  Usually the roti is filled with curry chicken, curry beef or curry shrimp.  The size of the meal is tremendous at Bara’s and I have yet to finish all at once so it’s great to share or leave for later.  Bara’s can make the roti to desired spiciness as well. I personally prefer the “Buss up shirt” with chicken or pumpkin when I need to be vegetarian.

Trinidad is also famous for a couple snacks, one called doubles and the other pholourie.  Doubles is a sandwich made of two flat bread (Bara) filled with curry chickpeas, fried and served with tamarind sauce or hot sauce.  Pholourie is a fried ball made of seasoned spilt pea flour and served with chutney.  Bara’s doubles are not too greasy, the pholourie is generous in size and both are home runs!  There is a much larger menu for Trinidadian and Chinese food and plenty of drink options, but everything tastes great.  I often will drive from out of town to Mississauga just to eat at Bara’s Caribbean Cuisine.  After you tried Trinidadian food at Bara’s I’m sure you won’t want to eat at any other Caribbean restaurant.  If you happen to dine at Bara’s ask for Michelle and letter her know you read about her at ToddLee.ca

Well I've been eating at this location for many years under two different ownership. I find the service to be friendly like yourself but I have to disagree with your taste. I am not one for too much spice and enjoy true flavors. The Bussupshirt and Dalpuri roti are both made very well. I prefer boneless chicken curry with potato and chickpeas. For my taste they are not too salty nor too spicy tho I can order it with more heat. I have hosted many parties and have served both doubles and pholorurie and they have always been big hits. On veggie days I've ordered pumpkin, baggie and aloo and take it from me being a self proclaimed Meat eater I was quite satisfied.

This place is horrible! The people are not bad, but the food is gross, no taste! I asked to have a hot roti, instead I rec'd one with no spice level. The first bite was nasty but I was hungry.... When I went up to the counter to ask for pepper sauce I was given some water blended peppers - no taste - . This is the second time I've been here and both times the food had no taste and the filling was mushy. Also, when i asked for pepper sauce the first time i didn't get any.... I will never eat at this place again.
