Tonight was Elsa's idea. But she managed to schedule two things on the same night and bailed out so it was just Ken and I.

A part of a week long Japanese Festival at the University of the Pacific (UOP) here in Stockton is a free movie, Tokyo Sonata playing at 8:00 PM. So the plan was to have dinner at the Breadfruit Tree a Caribbean restaurant. They had stopped serving lunch so this was a chance for the Lunch Bunch to sample the restaurant.

Ken and Louis Bynoe, the owner

The daily menu, but he also had Jamaican Curry Goat and Carribean Style Oxtails tonight

Outside the back window are boat docks

Ken orders the Goat and I have the Oxtails (which I had special ordered). We also ordered the Seafood Peleau to share between us.
The salad dressing was unique and very good

Here is Ken and Louis just after he brought our dishes

My Oxtails

Ken's Goat

My Oxtails with some Peleau added to my plate

All the dishes were very flavorful and the meat was cooked until very tender.

As is my usual case I asked the two young couples at the next table if I could take a photo of their food. Of the four dishes one had the Goat and one the Oxtail, so I only got to take photos of two more dishes.
The Jerk Chicken

The Caribbean Style Pork Chop

Dinner was delicious and since we had the added Peleau very, very filling. Now we had to drive back into town to the UOP campus and the Janet Leigh Theater.

The theater is a 168 seat full screen theater that shows movies on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8:00 PM. The admission is free to students, $3.00 for staff and alumni and $5.00 for the general public.

Tonight's one night only showing of Tokyo Sonata (a subtitled Japanese film) was free as a part of the week long Japanese Festival.

Too bad Elsa had to cancel. She loves oxtails. The movie was good, too. And the popcorn was only $1.00 and a 12 ounce can of soda was $0.75. :-)

  1. Good information. I didn't know about the theater and the food looked really good. I 'm sorry I missed it.
