Miami New Times' Description

Jamaica Kitchen has been simmering down south in the Sunset West Shopping Center for about 25 years. Owners Cheryl and Anson Chin seem to know most of the customers, a steady stream that stroll in, place their orders at the main counter, and exit bearing plastic grocery bags that can barely contain the foods' aromatics - all to an island beat that bounces about in the background. Diners eating in also transact their meals at the counter. The workers here, many of whom are family, couldn't be nicer. "Wi ah di bess!" is the motto, and when it comes to low-budget dining, the boast holds merit. Lunch and dinner get served all day, the latter of heftier portion and dished into larger containers. Don't miss the jerk pork or jerk chicken - or, for that matter, the juicy, hacked-up Chinese roast chicken with buoyant five-spice fireworks. Jamaican patties are topnotch too. Most lunches go for under ten bucks (a little more for market-price fish offerings such as curry shrimp or ackee-and-saltfish); dinners run just over $10, with the same seafood caveat. All items are also available to go, by the > or quart.

    Just okay. Apparently it was on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives... the jerk pork was tough and not spiced enough. The satlfish fritters were also tough. And 1 fried dumpling for a dollar is a rip off.

    Had a taste for oxtails! I love it!
