A taste of Caribbean creole comes to the I.E. tonight


Looking to bring a little island flavor into your life? Then read on.

Dhat Island is bringing Caribbean Creole cuisine to Redlands, and is celebrating with a grand opening mixer and sampling from 6 to 8 p.m. tonight (June 30).

Dhat Island is at 509 N. Eureka St., at Stuart Avenue, in the former Partners Pantry location. They opened June 23.

The restaurant offers catering, lunch pickup and delivery, and will likely be open for dinner soon.

Owner Angela Alc and her husband, Carlo, have family from the Caribbean, and Dhat Island serves a fusion of traditional food from several islands.

Alc, who has lived in Redlands nearly ten over twelve years, has previously catered in the Los Angeles, San Diego and Orange County areas.

    The food is absolutely fabulous. I attended the celebration on June 30 and experienced such a wonderful ambiance.

    I brought this Caribbean Creole cuisine to an Executive Committee meeting and they wanted to know where such wonderful flavors came from! My favorites are the Dhat Bourbon chicken and the red beans and rice.

    My friends and I look forward to the future special events planned for the restaurant.

    Thanks for your comments! I, too, was impressed by what I tasted at their grand opening but have yet to return for a full meal. Gotta put that on my list!
