People's Choice Kitchen

JAMAICA 🇯🇲

Sitting here along the narrow counter, there was not a moment when the small space was not shared with other customers ordering meals to go. The name of the restaurant seemed to live up to its billing. When new to a Jamaican restaurant, I often gravitate towards the stew chicken as a barometer.

Small stew chicken $9

The dish was tasty, I ate every bite, but what I enjoyed most was the community atmosphere. Jamaicans and non-Jamaican Caribbean-Americans came and go and many had regular orders that the proprietor knew by heart. Even as a first-timer, she was concerned how well I liked my dish and was pleased when given high praise. Yelling "thank you" through the protective glass when leaving and not expecting to hear anything back from the void, a cheery "You are very welcome!" came shooting back as I opened the door.


Not pictured was a pretty tasty beef patty ($2.50) that was not made in house.
