“Come here to get a real taste of Jamaica- in case you don't have time to fly down there today.”
This is my third visit to this Jamaican party. I say that because from the moment you walk in the door, the warmth and sweetness in the food comes from the people who own & work here. You are transported instantly to the ideal Jamaica resort…if only for the hour or so it takes to savor the music, Caribbean scented spices, and big warm smiles of the people here. Not familiar with the specialties of Jamaicia…no worries mon! Just taste a little of this or that until you find something that you really, REALLY want. Believe me, you will find it here. The beef ribs embody the prefect balance of sweet heat the restaurant is named after. They are BIG, with the bone sitting on the bottom of your plate, because they don’t just say “falling off the bone good”…it really is and does! The fish Escoviech transports me immediately to those dinners on sandy beaches under the coconut trees. The vegetable and spice blend on the whole fish is not hot, but a tart and aromatic blend that is a blissful example of this style. Jamaican curries in this country tend to be bland (with the curry adding only a yellow color), or hot and based on Indian style curry rather than the real Jamaican thing. These guys get it right…made from a ground Jamaican curry, filled with flavor that rely on balance rather than heat to create enormous flavor. I’ve tried it on the shrimp and the chicken and can’t decide which is better. They have fried shrimp or fried chicken or chicken fingers for the little ones if you want more familiar food. Sides are excellent, Jamaician soda fun. All entrees between $6 & $13 except some specials.
So just walk and from the moment Ben or DK smile & say “Welcome to Sweet Spice where everything is nice!” you will enjoy your vacation to Jamaica.
BTW, free WiFi, big screen TV and plenty of parking for those who just can't leave the USA for a lunch or dinner break.
