The jerk chicken with rice and beans is off the charts amazing. Curry and barbecue options are strong as well. Just be prepared for Montezumas Revenge on the toilet for the next 24 hours--seriously. I've been to this place 5 times and this has been the painful result for me each time. This tells you a few things: I'm an idiot, the jerk chicken is REALLY good to have me willingly go thru that, and their food is crazy hot and spicy. Maybe its just my weak Irish stomach and you will be fine. Finding out is worth the risk. Few more quick notes: the food is suprisingly high priced, and while it is located in a tough part of Bridgeport the staff and locals are friendly and you shouldnt fear for safety. Godspeed.

They use French bread for it. She butters it for you like mom would. It is one of my favorite places to get French toast.
