Jamaican Jerk Chicken
Southwest Side

Smoky jerk chicken is the main reason to stop in, but don’t skip the rest of the menu at this Jamaican takeout-only spot. Braised oxtails are meaty, thickly coated with a savory-sweet sauce that melts into the bean-studded rice, and come with braised cabbage and a couple of greaseless plantains. With a few drops of jerk sauce, the moist, spice-rubbed catfish becomes a fiery addiction. Grab a ginger beer and banana pudding to round out the order.
