Banana Hut is a casual Jamaican restaurant in South Miami. The majority of the restaurant is taken up by a huge charcoal pit that churns out the go-to dish here, jerk chicken. It hits all the jerk chicken notes: smoky, spicey, juicy - even the chunks of white meat that are tossed in there. Banana Hut is about a half-hour from Downtown, but it deserves to be on your radar whether you live nearby or just happen to be passing through, maybe on the way back from hanging out with flamingos at the nearby Zoo Miami.
