    16 Meals You'll Only Recognise If You're British And Caribbean

    Plantain with everything.

    1. A Sunday roast with rice and peas.

    2. An English breakfast with a ~Caribbean twist~.

    It's pouring down in the W Midlands, but breakfast is my English - Jamaican fusion including plantain & breadfruit.

    3. Beans with toasted hard dough bread, instead of boring "regular" toast.

    4. And beans that've been well-seasoned with onions and pepper.

    5. A Christmas dinner that includes ham, pork, oxtail, and rice and peas.
