Owner Jackie Black said she is relocating her restaurant from 7211 FM 1960 W., Humble, because the eatery quickly gained popularity and outgrew its kitchen at the nearby Shop N Go Food Store—just months after opening Dec. 1, 2020.
Island Tingz Caribbean Grill will continue serving Caribbean fare, such as jerk chicken, oxtail and beef patties; however, Black said the new spot will also sell alcohol and host reggae nights and live music.
The kitchen at the convenience store will be replaced by Black’s new concept, Cajun Soul Kitchen. Her new eatery’s menu will feature pork chops, fried chicken, shrimp etouffee, jambalaya and boudin balls. While the new eatery does not yet have a website, Black said she will open the new kitchen in late April along with the new Island Tingz Caribbean Grill. 281-446-0677. www.facebook.com/islandtingzcaribbeangrill
