A Little Caribbean favorite and go-to spot for patties, Ital Fusion is especially known for their generous portions and plant-based patties that come in flavors like pumpkin, lentil, and callaloo. The juices are bursting with island spices and flavors - and if you’re hungry, vegan, or vegetarian, I recommend one of their meals that comes with a generous portion of fried sweet plantains. Sample any of their mineral-rich seamoss blends or juice elixirs, too. My favorite is their soursop-seamoss, a slightly thick cocktail that can be a meal on its own, or the zesty passion fruit.
