Directly across from Ron's in the Northeast, Shana’s is a bright orange Jamaican spot that usually has a group of old men out front drinking Tings on a sunny day. You’ll find a spread of porridge and salt fish for breakfast, rotis, and an incredible brown stew chicken that we’d put on the “Welcome To The Great Northeast” sign if we could. There’s a large dining room with cushy booths where you can take your curry goat and heapings of two sides (go for the spicy cabbage and yams) and watch a soccer match. The platters come in small, medium, and large. For a heartier meal, go for the large and you’ll have enough food to scarf down for days.
