Time Out says

An offshoot of a Caribbean grocery store that was founded in Buffalo, New York, this Wicker Park restaurant brings Jamaican flavors to the Polish Triangle. The specialty here is the Jamaican Patty, which wrap fillings like beef, chicken and spinach in a flaky pastry crust. They work best as an appetizer or a snack—if you really want to fill up here, you need to order Pop Style Poutine, Rasta Pasta or a roti wrap topped with jerk chicken, jerk steak, jerk salmon or jerk jack fruit (everything is jerked here). The counter service spot also serves a selection of Jamaican-style juices, which can all be augmented with rum, CBD oil or Irish cream. Naturally, you can also get a Red Stripe here.
