At the beautiful, 1920s planned community of Leimert Park in south L.A., a vibrant center for African-American arts and culture, you’ll find Ackee Bamboo. The restaurant is in Leimert Park Plaza, which is also home to the newly opened (and fantastic) Papillion Art Gallery. The space is simple but sweet, with pea green walls that don’t quite match the marbled green tables. Portions are large, with festival bread and plump plantains on the side. For an upcharge, you can substitute the steamed mixed vegetable with callaloo, amaranth greens from Jamaica similar to collard greens. Fresh juices, like the popular pineapple-ginger drink, complement the meal. 4305 Degnan Blvd., Leimert Park; (323) 295-0043

This laid-back storefront spot serves Caribbean dishes such as jerk chicken, oxtail & curry shrimp.
