Our local No Frills supermarket had to close suddenly, for structural reasons*, but a shuttle bus takes shoppers to the No Frills on Carlaw … which just happens to be at the corner with a restaurant famous for its fine Caribbean food.
We split a really tasty Chicken Roti and a Jerk Pork Dinner with rice & peas and coleslaw. Glad we didn’t miss the barbecued pork chunks. Nice, relaxed atmosphere, helpful service and delicious cooking. The Real Jerk
* We asked other shuttle riders and the driver for rumours about when our closed No Frills might reopen. Looks like the original 10 months estimate was an optimistic dream. Best rumour: Underground ravine water needs to be dealt with before any reconstruction can start. That could mean a year to 18 months, just for permits, then the construction time on top of that.
We are going to be in a “food desert” for quite a while, it seems.
