    This tiny eatery has a pint-sized dining area, but the flavors and portions they put out are nothing to scoff out. Get the Jerk Chicken with Rice and Beans; a large will be enough for two meals.

    Jerk chicken, curry shrimp, calypso shrimp, stew chicken are all standouts. You really can't go wrong with anything here. The rice and peas that accompany most dishes is outstanding.

    This place is as the reviews claim; genuine home cooking. Felt like I was back home. Great flavor, great portions, worth the trip. And as noted, it's truly a hole in the wall; limited seating.
