Yahman's Authentic Jamaican Jerk Shack
You’ll pass this place on your way in and out of Key West, and it’s worth a stop if you want a styrofoam box full of outrageously good Jamaican food. The takeout operation has bounced around in the last few years, but is currently operating from a strip mall on North Roosevelt Boulevard. They have classics like an excellent jerk chicken with a perfect smoky heat, but also some unique options like their own version of a Cuban sandwich (called a “Jamaicano”) with tender jerk pork, swiss cheese, and pickled peppers. It sort of feels like the sandwich equivalent of hearing a great cover of your favorite song. Because Yahman’s is such a small operation, check their Instagram before you visit for the latest info on hours and location.
