Go look up 'deracinated' in the dictionary and you'll find a picture of Hemingway's, cross-referenced to 'Caribbean cooking'. It should have been obvious that in the antiseptic enclave of Discovery Bay, there wasn't much chance of getting some authentic, tear-the-top-of-your-head-off spiciness, but we still hoped, because there's no other Caribbean restaurant we could find in the Special Administrative Region.
We were of course disappointed. The menu is laminated in plastic, the food might as well have been, for all the flavour we got from it. There's a paucity of atmosphere: the closest you'd get to excitement here would be if a typhoon came and blew all the outside tables over. Service was inattentive rather than rude, as reported by others, but it really wasn't worth heading over on the ferry for.
