Iconic Caribbean Restaurant re-opens
After closing last year, Harry Singh’s Original Caribbean Restaurant has quietly re-opened. Singh had previously expressed his desire to re-open earlier this year. However, his comments mostly went under the radar.
While at the Minnesota State Fair, Harry Singh revealed his intention to reopen his eatery at 2653 Nicollet Ave. in September. This followed a year-long closure of Harry Singh’s Original Caribbean Restaurant, triggered by Singh’s severe foot injury last fall. Before the restaurant’s closure, the Business, Inspections, Housing and Zoning Committee held a quasi-judicial hearing in September to address unpaid taxes. Minnesota state law mandates the revocation of a business license if taxes remain unpaid 30 days after notification.
Although it didn’t quite meet its re-opening target of September, it has now fully re-opened. According to many Minneapolis locals, Harry Singh’s is the best place in the city for Caribbean food. Originally opened in 1983, it is also one of the oldest restaurants in the city.
Their menu includes a range of roti dishes, which are a type of flatbread filled with savory fillings. You can try the jerk chicken roti, the curry chicken roti, the curry beef roti, or the curry shrimp roti. As well as this, the eatery is known for its rice and peas and vegetarian dishes.
