Manhattan – Harlem
301 W 135th St between Frederick Douglass Blvd (Eighth Ave) and St. Nicholas Ave
Manhattan, NY 10030
Jamaican cuisine comes with a side of soul food at this tiny self-service restaurant. A steam table dominates the storefront with about a dozen savory selections. Pile on as much as you"d like; the food is just $5.59 a pound, and a typical Styrofoam carton laden with hearty grub goes for around six bucks. On the Caribbean side, you"ll find succulently tender, mildly spiced curried chicken and curried goat, and a meaty slice of king fish, fried and then stewed in tomato gravy. On the soul side, fried chicken and collard greens are unsurpassed. Though it"s unlikely that you"ll leave hungry, a $2.50 slice of red velvet cake will guarantee that you don"t.
