A new restaurant that specializes in Caribbean cuisine will celebrate its grand opening this week in Mattapan. Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery + Grill is slated to officially open its doors at 1614 Blue Hill Ave. on Saturday, April 1 at 12 p.m., unveiling a menu of patties, pastries, sandwiches, and more.
Golden Krust has hundreds of locations around the country, including one in Springfield, MA. Saturday’s opening in Mattapan will include live entertainment, 99-cent beef patties between 12 and 4 p.m., and giveaways, according to a banner on the company’s Facebook page. Golden Krust’s CEO, Lowell Hawthorne, has appeared on Undercover Boss.
The menu at Golden Krust includes patties filled with beef, chicken, shrimp, vegetables, and spinach. Jerk chicken and fish are available in wraps and sandwiches, and the restaurant also offers a lineup of combo platters, which feature curried goat, braised oxtail, and whole fish, among other options. On the sweeter side, there are ginger-flavored bulla cakes and other assorted pastries.
