Jeba, why Lucki Delite? “Lucki, because I think it’s cute and Delite as a tribute to Cuisine Caraibe Delite, the restaurant that was here before me.”
A Torontonian, Jeba studied at Concordia. She then decided to stay in the city, finding the local atmosphere more relaxed. Plus, as she says, “My parents, family and friends like to come visit.” After tasting her food, we are sure that they also come here to enjoy her cooking.
Caribbean food from Lucki delite
If you’re a fan of Caribbean-inspired dishes, Lucki Delite will become one of your favourite stops in town. We’ve put it on our list of great Caribbean restaurants in Montreal. If you like calm and soothing people, you’ll be sure to connect with chef Jeba Bowers Murphy. In addition to being genuinely friendly, Jeba cooks with the kind of delicacy that makes for a cozy little place. Having parents—she Dominican, he Jamaican—who are both very good cooks, genetics has served the chef well. Lucki Delite is also on our list of black-owned restaurants in Montreal.
A small but tempting menu
Lucki Delite’s menu is half a page long, but once you’ve tried everything, your taste buds, mind and stomach will urge you to return. So much so that their handful of sandwiches made it onto our list of the best sandwiches in Montreal. With five sandwiches, four sides, and a few drinks, the offer is simple and delicious, and the décor is just right. There’s no stress at Lucki Delite. Jeba is the only one on board, so if the service can sometimes be a bit slow, nobody seems to mind.
For example, the two sandwiches “Jerk Chicken” and “Jerk Squash” served in homemade coconut buns were scrupulously devoured, and the small mango salad was really tasty. You may want to do the same as we did on your next visit.
Lucki Delite seats about 20 people and on sunny days there is a rustic picnic table in front of the restaurant.
When your taste buds have convinced you to return, Jeba will be there to welcome you with her charming smile and her delicious and irresistible dishes.
Oh, we almost forgot, the prices of the dishes range from $3.50 to $13. Inflation? Recession? Not at Lucki Delite. We thanked Jeba for you.
