This Harlem Caribbean spot serves spicy jerk meats, oxtail, and sometimes seafood from hot dishes at the counter. Go for their jerk chicken or ribs covered in a great smoky jerk sauce that’s on the sweeter side. Almost all the meat plates are served with rice and peas and cabbage that’s cooked down until it’s tender, but make sure to order a side of very cheesy mac and cheese for the ultimate plate of comfort food. If you’re set on a specific menu item, get here earlier in the evening, because they do run out of things.
