    i think of them as similar... i like aspects of both... and dislike aspects of both.. i love potato salad, mashed potatoes, baked mac and cheese, candied yams etc etc.. so much.. i wont be caught eating hog maws, chitlins, fish head broth, liver, black pudding, etc.

    I would like to try soul food but most West Indians I know says soul food is nasty.

    Only african American thing I had was grit (which is nasty), I told the person who gave me grits to never give me that again. And well I had fry chicken and macaroni and cheese

    you have to go to a good soul food restaurant.. soul food and west indian food all have the same roots.. black cooking so while some meals are called different names, they all emanate from the same source.. but some are unique to some cultures.. either the dish or the method of preparation.. chicken and waffles is soul food... you can try out londel's their soul food is pretty decent.. or go to Soco on myrtle ave.. their red velvet waffle with jack daniels syrup and fried chicken is good.. they also serve west indian food as well so you can experiment and see which one you like.. grits i had myself (not at these restaurants but at the Borgata) and found it quite bland.. but from what i understand you have to hook the grits up.. i guess once you get the right set of seasonings etc, you can have shrimp and grits or chicken an grits or whatever else they eat it with.. i'm not a fan of porridge like substances so i am not sure if i will try grits ever again.

    You are from TNT, so you should be comparing Afro- trini dishes with the french creole cruises from New Orleans. What you had was AA style grits.

    With my family background blend Creole and Geechee there are a lot of similarities I see between the both - especially because both food well seasoned and spicy..love them both!!

    I find a lot of West Indians can not stand grits! ...I don't think allyuh have true creamy Southern style grits..not that instant shit that come out of the box!

    The term 'West Indian food' is quite vast.

    hoss u packing heat against Haitians? why u so angry?

    BTW people saying there are similarities, but they cant outline the similarities

    I hear Americans slander West Indian food, talking bout West Indians cant make proper baked macaroni and cheese, saying "macaroni pie is nasty"
