We arrived at Del & Mel's on Friday at 2:15pm, too late for the lunchtime specials, so my wife ordered the Jerk Chicken Meal and I had the Jerk Pork Meal. We also had Mango & Pineapple smoothies, which were superb - delicately flavoured with the fruits each distinguishable, as were the coconut milk, vanilla and sorrel. The Jerk meals each came with rice & peas, soaked in the meat sauce, plus cabbage and fried plantain and both were delicious. As we were the only diners present Del (owner, cook, chief bottle-washer etc.) kindly took the time to explain how the food was bought (all organic) and cooked and it was clear she applied the same care and attention to her restaurant food as she would to serving up Sunday lunch to her family. She explained the food was less spicy than it would be in Jamaica because many americans didn't like it hot, so she offered spicy and non-spicy. We had opted for the latter, so we had been provided with a side-dish of hot sauce, which was truly spicy - it blew the roof of my mouth off! We also ordered a Key Lime Pie to go and when we had this later that evening it was the best we had tasted, with a much stronger taste of lime than most. The whole meal for two with tips came to $52, which was more than most diners, but considerably cheaper than any 'fine dining' restaurants offering the same quality of food without the same individual care and attention. A great experience. We'll surely be going back.
