Natraliart Jamaican Restaurant
Serving the Mid-City area for over 35 years, Natraliart is one of the oldest Jamaican restaurants in LA and still one of its best. The menu is stacked with tremendous dishes like oxtails, saltfish, curry shrimp, and flaky beef patties, but for us, the jerk chicken will always be the star of the show. Unlike many spots on this list, Natraliart doesn’t lean on a heavy marinade or sauce to carry the dish. It’s the chicken itself that does the talking here. Tender, perfectly cooked meat with a smoky-spice flavor that’ll stay on your lips for hours, the jerk chicken at Natraliart should be on everyone’s priority list.
