Karuba's Yardy Kitchen

Perfect For:Cheap EatsLunch

This Jamaican spot on Centinela is a popular place for takeout dinner and lunch in Inglewood - for good reason. Pretty much any time of day, you’ll find a crowd of people who work nearby coming in to get their fix of saltfish and jerk chicken. Their jerk chicken combo plate is our go-to move here every time - it’s definitely spicy, but the roast plantains and rice and beans on the side balance it all out nicely. Be sure to get a side of oxtails - they’re fantastically tender, fall right off the bone, and come in a thick, fragrant gravy that we end up scooping up with a spoon when we’re finished.
