The Roseland restaurant makes it easy to try its excellent Jamaican food—they also have a food truck, which serves up stuffed clamshells of tender jerk chicken and veggies for less than $10. Throw in sides of plantains or a spicy, richly flavored beef patty, and you have enough food for two meals.
There's so much more than jerk chicken to Jamaican cuisine. There's rich curry goat, caramel cake, conch fritters and smoked oxtail. While we won’t fault you for saving those choices for your second trip—after all, there’s a reason jerk chicken is the most famous Jamaican food—no matter where you choose, you won’t wrong at Chicago’s best Jamaican restaurants, which span from Hyde Park to Evanston and include some of our favorite cheap eats.
