I live in Saint John, NB & i'm willing to drive HOUR just to come to this place. Let's face it. The food does not look pretty or fancy, it's street food & AMAZING food. I tried jerk chicken in Toronto which was also amazing. I wish they had a place like this in Saint John, NB or even Fredericton.... More

Have you had Jamaican or island food from a roadside grill? Then you'll know what to expect. The Novalea Drive location is really a take out as it only has a window bar with 4 stools. You aren't here for the ambiance however, that is back at the Shoe Shop. What you are here for is authentic food. Now it... More

This is *not* the place to impress your date, or celebrate an anniversary. Consider it a lunch cafe. Plus: *The food is authentic and very good. *It's popular. Minus: *The service is mediocre and amateur (took a while to clean our table, meal arrived with only one set of cutlery - had to fetch a 2nd set myself from another... More

I had tried jerk chicken before at another restaurant in Fredericton and was very disappointed. I went to the one at the Discovery Center. Was this jerk chicken the prettiest meal I ever saw? Heck no, but it did have an authentic street food feel. I even ate some of the boiled cabbage and I hate cabbage. It was spicy... More

My boyfriend and I stopped in for lunch today. We drive by this place a lot, but never managed to check it out until today. The restaurant is a simple cafe, decorated with bright colours and Jamaican flag accents. It's located in the Hydrostone area of Halifax and there's a nice view of the park across the street. We ordered... More

A taste of the Caribbean. The Twist favourite for me is the Ox tail - so yummy. The brave can go for the Jerk Chicken all accompanied by traditional rice and peas, or cabbage. Located in the Hydrostone Market it makes for a pleasant dining experience. They certainly aim to please.
