This dine-in place with white cloths and flashy artificial red-white-and-pink flower arrangements offers tasty Jamaican staples not widely available in the area, such as rich, fatty oxtail, curry goat, tilapia, red snapper, kingfish and, if you’re lucky, the traditional ackee and codfish. Tripe and cow feet are offered for home folks who really want to wax nostalgic. The eatery also imports sorrel, which in Jamaica grows in the fields and sports a beautiful red flower. Dried and mixed with ginger, boiled and steeped, it results in a cloudy brown drink, served in a big bottle, plenty to take home. It looks like a dark homemade apple cider, but its taste is fiery ginger.
