Boston Juicy Jerk Restaurant Review

: Boston Juicy Jerk operates in a down-home space, offering the likes of a jerk pork plate with big chunks of assertively spice-coated swine oozing unctuous juices served with generous portions of Jamaican rice-and-peas and salad. The big draw is Paul Johnson’s jerk ice cream, a recipe the native Jamaican tinkered with for over 20 years. Without revealing all his secrets, the nutty vanilla-based blend is infused with hints of nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, black pepper and Scotch bonnet peppers that will leave your tongue tingling slightly at the finish and craving another hit.
