Rampersad's Hot & Spicy Roti Shop, located just outside the downtown Windsor core

As we mentioned in a previous article, Rampersad’s Hot & Spicy Roti Shop is offering Winter Bites Culinary Week customers something they never had in previous years of the restaurant week: a vegan option. Rampersad’s Roti Shop is Windsor’s only authentic Caribbean restaurant which offers a variety of Caribbean meat and vegan delights. They also use local meat and produce to create delicious Caribbean classics.

Here is a showcase of the 3 Winter Bites selections that we here at WindsorEats are most excited about on their lunch menu:

Spinach/Dhal Fritters
This goodie is served with mango chutney for dipping and is a vegan dish.

Curried Potato/Channa
Another vegan dish offered by Rampersad’s. Curry spiced potatoes and chick peas with tamarind sauce and cucumber chutney wrapped inside a roti skin.

Coconut Rice Pudding
We’re keeping this selection all vegan. Well worth it, too.

Both the lunch and dinner Winter Bites Culinary Week menus from Rampersad’s Hot & Spicy Roti Shop can be viewed here. The Rampersad’s lunch menu is $10 per person and the dinner is $25 per person. Reservations are strongly recommended.

Winter Bites is Windsor and Essex County’s very own restaurant week. From January 16 to January 22, 2012, diners can visit any Winter Bites participating restaurant and indulge in a 3-course meal, created with 3 options in each course to choose from. Participating restaurants are open during their regular hours of operation.
