The menu has titles written in the Jamaican vernacular. So, from the “Full Mi Belly” (entree) section customers can sample Jerk Salmon, Curried Goat and Ackee and Saltfish —the latter is the national dish of Jamaica, built from the seeds of the rare ackee fruit, and it must be of perfect ripeness; otherwise, it’s poisonous. When properly prepared, the sauteed seeds cradle the briney flavor of saltfish with a taste that is somewhere between nuts, cheese and eggs.
This spot checks all boxes of authenticity, from the staff’s accents and the wall-sized portrait of the homeland to the soft plonks and chirps of reggae in the background. Their slogan says it best, they serve “Di Real Tase A Jamaica.”
