Berkeley: Suya African-Caribbean Grill; restaurant review

80 North

Suya African-Caribbean Grill  2130 Oxford St./Center St., downtown, (510) 981-8028 .  M-Sat 11-9pm; $.  

Started strictly as take-out but now providing a few tables, this very small venue with a very high ceiling specializes in a simple menu of West African and Caribbean-inspired skewered meats, fish, and vegetables.  Consider ordering take-out for a picnic across the street on the green green grass at Cal.  Meals include a main, a side, and a pita bread and are well-priced at $4.95 to $8.95.  My favorite is the tilapia fish seasoned with suya pepper and a side of grilled plantain on a stick.  Jerk chicken with grilled corn is also tasty.  Vegetarians will be impressed with the fat veggie skewers.  Non-alcoholic Chapman red fruit punch is a nice thirst quencher.
