Anyone tries this new place on Amsterdam on 80th? If
so, what should I try there?

    I stopped in for dinner a week ago. Its the only
    "island " place I've been to that can't even get the
    plaintain right. Forget it.

      I liked the place, myself, but my experience is
      limited to a vegetable roti at lunchtime, fired up
      with some of the house-made hot sauce that sits in a
      jar on the table. It was cheap and good, and the
      vegetables were fresh. I thought it was reasonably
      pleasant spot, too. If you try it, let us know what
      you think...

        They had a booth at the Amsterdam street fair about a
        month ago, and I had a piece of jerk chicken.
        Absolutely tasteless! I have no desire to go back.
