  1. Yeah, both good choices. I've worked in Falls Church (just over the line) for 14 years so I know both of those places well. Caribbean Grill has OUTSTANDING side dishes -- their yuca is superb, and their plantains melt in your mouth. While their chicken is very good, I've often just gotten side dishes for lunch. This was actually my first time trying any of the eateries in Lee-Harrison (other than Dogma for my pups). Pietanza looks interesting too, but also a bit pricy. Then there's Sushi-Zen. Any 411 on either of those? I'm guessing "Oriental Gourmet" is as bad as you'd expect from the name?
  2. http://www.jerkatnite.com/food.html No affiliation with the former Ball or Nothing, to my knowledge. This take-out/catering/food truck operation is located on H Street NE. I've passed by several times in the last couple weeks, and there is always a line for the food truck there. And people down the street further sing the praises, too. Anyone ever try it before?
  3. FWIW, the Negril in Gaithersburg has been sold and is now called Antonio's. It's still selling Jamaican food but has added Latin American food to the menu. All this has been reported on in some other thread. My coworkers and I hit this place for lunch at least once every other week. It's sad to report that after maintaining the previous owner's high standards for several months after the change in ownership, Antonio's has officially gone downhill. The last two meals there have been extremely unremarkable (I won't say "bland" but in comparison to previous efforts, it certainly seems that w
  4. Big change to report. Caribbean Plate is under new ownership. The new owner is the Muffin Man from Maryland (La Plata? Lanham?). ( He was very nice.) The menu is totally different - more Jamaican offerings. No more saltenas. No more black bean soup. The owner said he plans to add his famous muffins to the menu,
  5. This one is in the running for strangest location. Turn in to the Seven Springs Apartment complex on Cherry Hill Road, drive back past several high rise buildings until you reach the large central pond/rec center, and look for the apartment building facing the pond that has a neon "OPEN" sign in one of the small windows at the garden level. This is the "mall" for the large complex, including a convenience store and this small Jamaican cafe. We parked with no problems in the nearby parking area, although a sign at the complex entrance says that permits are required. The cafe consists of m
  6. Planning to check out the outdoor market at Union Station tomorrow and looking for recommendations. Does that location have the same menu as their Georgia Ave location?
  7. There is a new hole in the wall Jamaican restaurant that just opened in the Norbeck Center on the corner of Norbeck Rd and Georgia Avenue, just above Leasure World. This center is becoming ethnic food central, what with a Thai restaurant, Korean restaurant, Gyro place, and an Italian Deli. And now a Jamaican restaurant to add to the mix. In a word, the food is great and authentic. Dinners are served on a huge mound of wonderful red beans and rice and also come with steamed vegs (shredded carrots and cabbage with wonderful spices) and plantains. If you want, stemed greens (calaloo) can be
  8. I searched, and I refuse to believe that Negril does not have its own thread. The best lunch in SS at the moment is the Jerk Chicken Burrito at Negril Express, the carry out shop next door to the main restaurant.
  9. If you spend any time just watching the door of Sweet Mango, there's a constant stream of humanity continually passing through: school kids, EMT workers, policemen, construction workers, loiterers, parents- pretty much the entire neighborhood of Petworth, it seems. Most of them are getting takeout, though there is a nice roof area upstairs. The smoker starts up early in the morning, blowing the sweet smell of jerk chicken over the streets at a constant rate. The jerk doesn't have a searing heat, but it does have a really nice complex flavour. They don't only have jerk chicken, of course; ther
  10. I ordered take away at this small but friendly restaurant in an otherwise dead-looking strip mall in Upper Marlboro. I can't speak to anything more than my vegetarian roti, but if the rest of the menu hits as well as this did, it bears further investigation. The portion was enourmous for $10, with freshly sauteed vegetables (half-dollar sized slices of zucchini, summer squash, and carrots along with potatoes and diced onion) in a moderately spicy curry sauce. I was pleasantly surprised at the freshness, as most of my other Caribbean take out experiences have involved food taken from a stea
  11. This small ice cream store is located on the first floor of a residential building just off of Rt. 1 in Mt. Rainier, a few blocks from the border with the District near the silly "traffic circle". Metered street parking is available along 34th. The sign out front indicates that the ice creams are organic; they are also made personally by the owner, who told us that he was in the middle of making a new batch. We arrived about an hour before the official close time on a Friday, but he was in the midst of closing down, possibly because the previous batch of ice cream was almost gone. The regula
  12. Ventured to Just Jerk for lunch this month - this is a small roadside joint on Lanham Severn road at the horrible intersection with 450, in Lanham. In fact, google maps was confused about the location, placing it on the ramp section of 450 and gave completely incorrect directions - you need to be headed westbound on 564 (Lanham Severn), it will be on your left in the section where the road has split between Cipriano and Princess Garden. If you are coming from the west, you will need to loop around and turn into the westbound lanes to get there. The building is a small structure, green with yel
  13. I realize the heat of summer is far away, but I've been trying to do this every summer for the past 3 years, and never seem to get around to it. I loved the jerk chicken I had when I was in Jamaica years ago, and since I wont be going back for many years to come, it's time to bring it home. To do this properly though I need two things that have proved pretty elusive in the past. 1. Scotch Bonnet Peppers 2. The branches of a pimento tree The first shouldn't be hard...I just never seem to see them when I need them. I was hoping some hot head in here would know of a place that carries them reg
  14. Most Jamaican patties in this area are made at wholesale (there's a big one in Langley Park right on New Hampshire Avenue) - that's why so many of them taste the same. I'm not a huge fan of Negril's Jamaican patties, but I love what they call "Meat Loaf" which is basically a sloppy Joe inside of coco bread. I'm also not a huge fan of their Jerk Chicken, but I *love* their Curry Chicken. You know, the more I think about it, the more I think I've been to Just Jerk. But there's a voice deep inside me that says the place I'm thinking of may have been in Beltsville - regardless, it was several ye
  15. Just saw this article in The Winchester Star about a new place of interest in my old hometown.... "The Tropical Island Coffee and Cafe features Blue Mountain coffees, Jamaican cuisine, and an owner who runs his business on traditional 'island time' Island Getaway by Mary Huntsberry
  16. This is the kind of place I enjoy writing about and I really hope this place does well. Its located on University Blvd just north of Main Street. Its located in the basement of one of the shops facing main street and I for one am glad I stopped in on Saturday night. After a day's worth of yard work I had no desire to cook and didn't feel like picking anything up from Wegmans so I figured now was the time to check this place out. There are a few tables inside but it is mostly a carry-out business. We had two of the meat pies, which were flaky and just spicy enough to get your attention. Also
