Rodney P is on a mission to discover why Britain hasn’t fallen in love with West Indian food.

I don’t agree with the writer and “food connoisseur” who says that we may have to think about dumbing down our cuisine in order to make it more appealing to others.  

First it’s our music and now the suggestion is to water down our cuisine to suite a “mainstream” palate. 

Hahahaha.

NOT ON MY WATCH! 

West Indian cuisine is very popular so there is no need for this “dumb down” talk.

In my opinion some of these take-away/restaurant owners just need to step their business game up, with regards to service. The businesses generally tend to do quite well financially, but owners could still be doing more to attract more custom (e.g.  introduce delivery services and think about possible expansion etc ).

Some owners also need to understand the importance of providing staff training and good efficient customer service.

  1. dumb down????? no way. plus that part about all restaurants having the same taste ergh tell that to mcdonalds burger king and kfc. they dont taste the same

  2. Totally agree that West Indian/Caribbean restaurants need to up their game, particularly in the service area – the food is generally A*

  3. After all these years of seeing some Caribbean restaurants step up their game and having never heard a non-Caribbean person (especially white British) not like home cooked Caribbean food, maybe the only other solution is, as they said on the video, to “dumb it down” or change the way it is served.

    I certainly wont have my food changed!! and for many of us it will not change but if we are talking about the business side of selling the food to British White customers all around Britian then maybe it is the way to go. Because lets face it, there be one of those posh white kids who will take the idea and run with it and the profit….as one of the guys in the video is trying to do.

    Big up Rodney P on this, hope he is going to do more docs about what concerns us.
