Jamaican Jerk Hut Restaurant Review:

Nicola Shirley, high priestess of island food, presides, ladling out her famed goat curry and spicy jerk chicken. Try the oxtail stew with roti (a chickpea pancake used to wrap varied fillings---an Indian influence), and, of course, jerk chicken that’s the island’s own. Start the meal with conch salad or mango salsa, heated by Scotch bonnet peppers and cooled by cilantro. Salt fish fritters are available, or go for the calaloo (a spinach-like vegetable) tarts, one of many vegetarian offerings, along with spinach with groundnuts (true African) stew or fried okra. Make yourself some rum punch and enjoy the reggae tunes, but don’t forget to include a slice of homemade carrot cake or coconut pound cake for dessert. BYO.
