Caribbean Treehouse. Caribbean Treehouse is perhaps the only local restaurant that currently dishes up the spicy food of Trinidad and Tobago. Service is casual to the extreme - if you want another bottle of pop, you walk over to the cooler and take one out yourself. Roti, sort of a Trinidadian burrito made of chicken-potato stew or a handful of curried beef wrapped up in a grilled Trinidadian flatbread, can come pumped up with the restaurant's fiery homemade sauce. On Saturdays, there's the “sparrow special,” an enormous plate of food that involves jerkylike strips of salt cod, boiled cassava, sauteed onion, tomato and a certain quantity of dense, chewy dumplings.
