I was first introduced here because my great friend Ken has a couple friends in a band (The Airtights) who were debuting their first performance there. I just love spending time with Ken and watching bands so I was game.
Bypass the sketchy ‘hood and float downstairs into the Calabash Lounge area. Very intimate and small…extremely friendly staff, EXTREMELY FRIENDLY!! the jamaican rustafarian brother who greeted us was my first indication of that…and every person we met after delivered the same awesome coolness.
They play live performances on various nights I think…there was the band, guest vocal appearances, spoken word, true hiphop…the place was bumpin! Tonite it was a PACKED house!
We had a bunch of tapas:
Roti & dip: love it. soft, chewy, hot…the dipping sauce was delicious. i have no idea what was in it but i scooped every last drip of it out! Deep fried dumplings: they look like timbits…but taste nothing like it. the dough inside had a subtle sweetness to it that i cant describe..you just have to try it. Jamaican Patties: we had to order em all-beef, chicken & veggie! i only had the chicken and veggie. freshly made IN HOUSE…best patties i have ever had. delish!!!! Jerk Fries: these are soo addictive! seasoned with jerk spices..you get a little kick in the mouth with each bite
Both nights we had tapas but every dish that i saw being served from their regular menu looked and smelt so tantalizing, I think I will have to get a regular dish next time!"

"Im going back to this place for the people, and the relaxed friendly atmosphere, and beautiful music. This place has two levels, go downstairs, and enjoy some of the reggae music being played. The decor is fantastic, and yes the people are super friendly. Its not rough like the neighbourhood, just genuinely nice people.
Onto the food, it was fantastic, I had the seafood curry, my sister had the fish fry, and my gf had the prawn jerk curry. All excellent. To start we had the coconut dumplings, and jerk fries. Also very very good.Im lucky to find this place, I love it, its going to be on my most visited places in Vancouver list."
