    Cephas' Hot Shop, an Ybor City Institution

    By Kristy Andersen

    Cephas' Hot Shop has been a favorite stop in Tampa's Ybor City more than 30 years. The Hot Shop offers Jamaican fare including curried goat or jerk chicken and, for the vegan, fresh vegetables. If you're looking to lighten your load from vacation indulgence, Cephas will make you an Aloe Vera shake. Every Saturday night in the Hot Shop courtyard, enjoy a Jamaican Reggae band.
