I have found my favourite pulled pork sandwich and fish & chips place.  Sea Salt Caribbean Deli at Pasarbella has been a wonderful find that we have returned to again and again.  I stumbled upon it when I was exploring Pasarbella at The Grand Stand one day, and boy, am I happy I did. I love pulled pork.  It’s something I fell in love with when I was about 8 or 9 years old when we went to my parent’s Mexican friend’s house for a party.  I can still see the table covered with food, and Aunty Elena scooping out a portion of pulled pork from a huge silver pot.  She had cooked it herself, and it was wonderful.  I love how pulled pork is so tender and juicy, and with the right mix of spices it is oh so flavourful.

Sea Salt’s version, which is the Caribbean version obviously (not that I’m really sure what the difference is between the Caribbean and Mexican ones), ticks all the boxes when it comes to a pulled pork sandwich.  The shredded meat is beautifully tender without losing it’s bite, and is gorgeously juicy and robust.  The crusty thick-cut bread that it is served with is crisp on the outside but soft on the inside.  Spread with mayonnaise, it is perfect with the pork.  It’s a big sandwich, but that isn’t all.  It comes with a generous serving of mixed salad that includes a variety of greens like arugula, baby beet greens and frisée.

The other dish we love is the fish & chips.  You have a choice of fish, and we particularly like the sea bass for it’s sweetness.  The fish pieces are cut thick and chunky, so you know you are getting the real deal, and it’s good quality fish.  None of that thin processed fillet please.  The batter also doesn’t overwhelm the fish.  I don’t like when fish is over-battered and there is a sticky moist layer of unfried batter in between the crisp part and the fish.  Sea Salt’s fish was perfectly battered and fried when you order so it is served crisp and piping hot.

The part that the kids love most, and that I heartily approve of too, is that the fish is not served with regular potato fries.  It comes with a mix of sweet potato fries, plantain chips and yam chips.  Yummee!  It’s another generous serving and great for sharing.
