We came here because Joe had a Living Social Deal, and I’m pretty sure everyone else eating there also had one. When you look at the prices, they are pretty ridiculous for the amount of food you get. I’m so glad we had one of these coupons. We were able to find street parking in the area (I can’t believe you have to pay for meters until 8 PM!) We walked in and the only area with color was the ordering station, everything else was black and white.
I ordered the jerk chicken breast. I was so surprised by how little meat came out with the dish! and it was $15! I would not pay this much for this plate. I asked them for the spiciest and the sauce was quite spicy. I loved that tingling numbness feeling that took over my lips. I know, I’m crazy… And only 1 fried plaintain. that was it! pretty disappointing. I would only return if I had another groupon.
I’e had callaloo at Boswell’s in New Orleans and so I was excited to have it again. I’m not sure what it was, but it just didn’t taste as good or fresh as I’d had it in Nola. Something about the flavor was just unsettling.
Joe had the oxtail stew. We were both very surprised when Joe’s dish came out because I think we were both expecting a bowl of soup to come out. He really liked the flavor of his dish and I tried a bit and the meat was just falling off the bone. I liked the flavor too.
