Jerk chicken at Veronica's Kitchen

When Trinidad native Veronica Julien lost her job at the Department of Buildings, she opened up this beloved FiDi food cart, serving West Indian specialties to Wall Street suits on their lunch breaks. On weekdays, you'll find the affable Julien on Water Street, heaping fall-off-the-bone jerk chicken and Trini roti (a stretchy flatbread) filled with curried chicken or goat into Styrofoam clamshells. Wash down the spicy dishes with a fragrant homemade sorrel (hibiscus) drink.
